Lilacs in Full Bloom
In my backyard, at my work...the lilacs are in bloom. In fact, they are even in my stamp room.
I wanted to share a non-card with you. Just a practice sample, if you will. It is a lilac image drawn by Marianne Walker for Copic, and colored by me.
On Friday, I was so excited to have a much-needed day off and was able to attend the Intermediate Copic Certification class in Columbus, OH, taught by Colleen Schaan. I figured that if I traveled all the way to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2008 for the Standard Certification, then I had no excuses for not going, given it was just 15 minutes away.
Anyway, it was a great class! I urge all of you to take it if you have the chance. I hope I will be able to apply some of my learning in my future projects.
The lilac image was final project for the class, which I actually took home and finished on Sunday...one thing I learned, I'm a slower colorist than most with a "light touch". ;-)
I will link this particular post to Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #24 Challenge. Seems to fit.
And take a look at a photo I took after school today. The blossoms are kinda positioned the same, aren't they? Now if only the sun would shine around here so I could see those cast shadows. ;-)
