Thanks for your kind comments on the last post. I love to color, and hopefully I'm getting better each time.
Thanks Nise. She mentioned the spot where I've been taking my pictures lately. I think this spot is working for me too--except for one thing. I can only take the photos in the afternoon when it's fairly sunny. Thanks for mentioning it. oooh...Speaking of the sun, it's shining right now and we haven't seen much of it over the last few afternoons. I have a stack of things to photograph... oh snap, that's right, my camera isn't here. Tomorrow, tomorrow....
Back to The Coloring Class...
I thought I would show you a little of my booklet for my class called Stamping In Color. I'm hoping to make this the first class in a series of coloring classes. The first class this week was color pencil techniques. I introduced several techniques for Prismacolor pencils stressing the fact that I was introducing these techniques and that they would have to practice. We covered a lot in 2 hours. To help them remember them all, I created a booklet on the computer.
Sarosa, you will be proud to know that I finally used my Bind It All!
I printed the title in outline so that the letters could be colored in too.
On this page, we talked about designing the card and choosing the paper colors before coloring the image.
When they arrived, I gave them an image to color. Then at the end, they would color the same image using one of the technique they learned, and hopefully seeing an improvement.
What does it say about the teacher when the students' examples come out BETTER than the teacher's??? These are the images colored by Sandy and Rosita using the Magic Color Pencil technique. My example is ... somewhere... I didn't take a picture of it. This is a technique I am not crazy about (yet), but I wanted to show it in the class as another option.
The next class will be Watercolors (pencils, crayons, and a pallet) for Rubber Stampers.
