Conie Fong Digi Mermaid - Kit and Clowder Marker Class

Signs you  might be a mermaid:  You ride out the storm,  you dance in the rain,  you "sea" beauty in life,  you play in the waves.

Connie Fong digi from Etsy, Copic markers, 6 x 6 card base, white gel pen, glossy gold card stock, pearl accents

Hi everyone, 

Coloring with my Copic markers is definitely my favorite way to spend time in my craft room.  I enjoy spending hours practicing and learning new skills and techniques.  Alyce Keegan of Kit and Clowder offers monthly online classes where she shares her amazing artistic expertise by video with written and illustrated step-by-step instructions so her students can follow along.

This mermaid project was from Kit and Clowder's May 2017 markers class using  this Conie Fong Ariela digital image and includes fundamental techniques for sand, water, rainbow shading and scales.  Even though it was my first time attempting some of these techniques, there certainly was a learning curve and I definitely need a lot more practice,  I love the way this sweet little  mermaid turned out.  Coloring in a bright rainbow palette always makes me happy!

I framed her in a glossy gold cardstock frame cut in Cricut Design Studio and added pearls for accents, of course!  I think  she is colorifically magical.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
