Good morning everyone!! Welcome to Hip Hop for July 2. Happy Independence Day!! I'm gearing up for my annual tradition - I watch the "Independence Day" movie, then head over to my uncles for a family BBQ then to fireworks. One of my favorite days of the year....
This week, we're featuring the July KOTM, a pocket full of.... Isn't it the cutest? I always think everytime I get a kit that "this is my favorite so far" - which typically lasts until the next kit comes. ROFL...
I was totally inspired this week by the color palette greens, violets and plums that I've been seeing in the stores lately.
1) I miss you
Prismacolor: Raspberry, Tuscan Red, Warm Grey 10%, Mulberry, French Grey 10%
2) Let's Patch Things Up
Prismacolor: Blue Violet, Dark Green, Violet, Limepeel, Imperial Violet
Someone asked me what makes me choose between the copics and the pencils. To me, both medium yield very different results. The copics are a cleaner smoother look; the pencils are a bit more homespun. I like my copics for animal and people images, and also for images with larger coloring surfaces. Because I have the sketch markers with the brush tip, I am not yet as skilled as I want to be at controlling the brush tips with smaller tight coloring images - so with the smaller stamps, I will often defer to the pencils - at least until I sharpen my skills with the copics some more. :)
Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is
Enjoy the rest of your hop. Hip hop!
