Sounds like alot of fun, wish there were classes closer to my area --MD -- Baltimore or DC--even VA or some places in PA. Love you blog.
Kel, be on the lookout for classes near you, as Sally Lynn offers many classes all over the Northeast. Meanwhile you won the set of Spica glitter pens from my blog!
I know it's been a while since I posted a draw-it-yourself project. Here's a fun, but easy one to try as you make last-minute Valentine cards. For my project today I used either Sketch or Ciao markers in BVoo, V17, and Y11. I also used a gray Multiliner SP 0.3 for my outlines. Review this post for the original technique I'm building from.
First, we want to learn how to make a bow. Start with a single dot. Add a heart on either side, but put the halves of heart fairly close together so it's not too wide. Add another drop shape under each heart for the ribbon ends. Outline each shape with a mulitliner when you're done. You can make the ribbon ends either squared or rounded, it's your choice.
Now we can make our bundle of balloons. Start with a heart-balloon by making a regular heart, then adding a little tail. Next to that balloon, draw a yellow round balloon and add a tail. add a couple more heart balloons to finish out the bundle. Outline each balloon and add a smile to the yellow balloon. Doodle a bow to hold the balloons and draw strings down from the balloons to the bow.
I hope you have a great weekend and get a chance to doodle some cute balloons. Just to remind you, there are many classes coming up in the next month or two that are filling fast. If you are considering taking a Certification class register right away with Nancy, our Certification Coordinator, so you don't miss out.
