Lacy Sunshines "The Golden Book"


Another month has come and gone here at Lacy Sunshine Color and Craft and it my turn to post my individual project.  This month I was given an image called  The Golden Book and and you can find it in Rory's Sweet Urchin Christmas~A Coloring Storybook Adventure.




I wonder what kind of adventure these three are on?  I guess the only way we will find out is to purchase the book.  Get your today!

Don't forget Lacy Sunshine has many other coloring books available Here.
If that is not enough for you....visit the Store...there are always new images being added.  The newest are the Trolls.

Want some instruction on coloring for a great price....we also have that available for you Here.

Here is a list of the Copics I have used.

Sugar and Spice.....

and everything nice.

Today is my second creation and post as a guest designer for Imagine That Digistamp
FB page.

For my project this time....I wanted to do an image that I have never done before.  There are so many fabulous stamps in the Store that I had a hard time decided which to choose.  I have never colored a baby, so I picked Sweet Sleep Boy.  

         
As you can see this set comes with the image, lovely papers and sentiments.  


Image was colored with Copics.  Solid background paper is from SU...patterned paper is from the kit.  Lace is from my stash.  Ribbon was made with paper from the kit and a SU bow punch.  

I photo copied and printed out 2 images.  I didn't color the blanket area...so I took tracing paper and traced over the blanket lines and paper pieced the ducky paper over the blanket area.  With the second copy of the image I had colored, I cut out the little arms and layered them onto the original image.

Amazes Myself!


 It's funny...I have always been a crafter and I did love to paint, but I had never considered using markers....especially coloring.  Coloring is what you did as a kid when there was nothing else to do.  I even remember sitting with my mom on a Saturday afternoon and her coloring with me.  Than in October of 2015 that all changed.
I met a wonderful lady, Nan, at a campground I was running and we became friends.  She introduced me to card making.  Something I had always thought about but didn't know where to begin.  We would take a day here and there and she would show me all different techniques.  Thank she introduced me to stamps, digital images and her pencil collection.
Wanting me to be able to learn all that she could she introduced me to a few Facebook groups in which Kit and Clowder was one of them.  I would go into that group every day and see the amazing works done by the crafters...or should I say artists and be in awe.  Wanting to learn more, I decided to purchase Spectrum Noir markers and give it a go.
I must say, at times I found myself a bit frustrated (and I thought coloring was suppose to reduce stress); but I kept hearing practice...practice...practice.
A few months went by and I was getting the hang of this marker thing.  Lol....so I decided to push myself a bit further and take the SN certification class.  I studied and practiced and sent my test in....waiting.....waiting....and one day the email came and I had gained my certification.  I was very excited.

Now that I had accomplished this I was doing my classes at Kit and Clowder I kept seeing lots of posts about Copics.  Oh no!  Another coloring medium.  I bought a whole collection of Prismacolor pencils and haven't even started learning those!  But the results people were getting with Copics was amazing but could I afford to add them to my collection?  Best next thing to do was order just hair color combinations.  That is just what I did....and I loved them!
Practice...practice...practice.....I was doing pretty good but I wanted to see someone using these markers in Real Time!  Might as well jump in with both feet so I registered for the Copic certification.  I had the honor of meeting Cindy Lawrence and the class was fab. ❤️ 

Received my standard Copic certification.  Now I am patiently awaiting the next step of Copic classes to come to my area so I can upgrade my certification.

I found myself becoming obsessed with coloring...coloring Digis from so many different artists...too many to even list....and I wanted more.  That is when I found Christopher Kerry.  A online Copic instructor that taught a more realistic way of coloring with Copics. His classes are fantastic!
I await his classes every month and just can't wait until that email arrives in my in box.  We have done some amazing images in these classes.  Watch the progression of images that we have been taught to color....join us!  You will not regret a minute of it!



























Sorry for the yellow from the artificial light on this last photo...will be replacing when the sun comes out.

Thank you for taking the time in reading this long post!  But I believe if you want to learn about using Copics...and want to improve your coloring skills...this class also converts the Copics to other markers and pencils.....this is the place to be.

Eskimo Kisses.......

There is a chill in the air.....autumn has arrived here in PA.  I just got back from buying a pair of shoes just so I can retire my sandals for the year.  I am very disappointed...Mosley because that means that winter is right around the corner.
I was amazed that there were Christmas decorations already displayed.  We haven't even celebrated Halloween or Thanksgiving yet! 

With that said....lol....I decided to join in the festive Christmas season and use the Eskimo Friends kit in creating my card as GDT this week for Imagine That Digistamps.






I used the Digi image and colored them with Copics.

Skin-E50, E51, E70
Hair-W9, W7, W5, W3
Green-G19, G09, G03, G02, G00
Purple-V25, V22, V20
Igloo-B34, B00, B0000

After they were colored I scanned and printed out 3 copies to layer them on the card.  I made 2 copies 
of the igloo after shadows were added and layered the igloo after adhering two sided adhesive paper by Elizabeth Craft designs, putting a layer of Great Impressions sparkling ice glitter.

Solid paper is from my stash.  Patterned paper is included in the kit.

A Tisket a Tasket!

Hello all my crafty friends!  I am back today with the announcement that I am going to be on the GDT for Imagine That Digistamp for the next 3 months.  I am very excited because there are many more images that I want to create with, not that I couldn't buy them on my own.....but the creations made with them being on the team will get more notice!
So for my first project I decided to use Freda's Fower Basket. 


As you can see this collection comes with lovely digital papers, in which I decided to use the green because I wanted to color the flowers in the basket to reflect Autumn.  I will just use the other 2 remaining papers on another project.

I colored the image with Copic markers.

Basket-E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, E29
Flowers-Y23, E08, YR18, E49
Leaves-YG05, G94, Y11

Solid card stock is from my stash.  Die is from spellbinders.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Come back the 4th Thursday of this month for another lovely digi!

Spooky Halloween! Week 41 DC

🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃
For so many....Halloween is the holiday not to miss!  My daughter is just like that.  When October rolls around she begins looking for decorations!  I believe that is why orange seems to be her favorite color.  So I decided to make this weeks creation for her and my grandchildren so they can remember this Halloween in their apartment before they move.
 
Welcome to Digi Choosday
 


Don't forget to jump on over to the Digi Choosday Challenge Blog and grab your code for fabulous discounts.  October brought two amazing new collections.
 
 
With this collection I made a photo album.
 
 
Inside are the following pages.




As you can see the last page I left room for my daughter to put pictures of my grandchildren in their costumes.
