Mmmmm...come to my cafe and I'll gladly treat you to a coffee. A coffee set is going to be released next week at CHF...you can guess how I felt about that! Woohoo! I wanted to show you a close shot of one of the mugs in my project. The pattern was created just simply by dabbing my blender pen in spots that I colored. The blender pen PUSHES color out of the way and therefore lightens.
I had this old frame kicking around and what was in it was very outdated....can you say dusty rose and country blue....
I wanted to create a fun border for my focal images so I did the "polished stone" technique on a transparency with my copic marker refills. Gotta love all those color choices. I used E33, E17, YG95, E49....mmmm....looks like a yummy coffee mix.
Here is a close shot of the mugs...each one a little different. Some I used my blender pen, others I used a marker slightly darker. I just had fun creating whatever kind of cup came to my head.
I then airbrushed my mugs with my Y21 marker to add to the warm glow.
Here are all my deets, watch for this release next week TUESDAY!
