For those of you new to our blog I would like to welcome you to our weekly feature – #RememberingChristy. One and half years ago our dear friend and work colleague, Christy Riopel passed suddenly away. Christy was a huge part of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine for close to 8 years and will forever be apart of our creative souls. Each and every saturday we celebrate Christy by sharing a project or two that Christy created. Our creative jar filled with her designs is literally endless 🙂
This week we are looking back to the Fall 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue Christy put together an article featuring the VERY HOT – Chameleon Color Tone pens. Here is a little peek at one project that we featured.
1. Using a black dye ink, stamp your image onto your cardstock. It must be a water-based dye ink. For my layout, I used a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock.
2. Remove the brush tip side of the Chameleon Color Tone pen, and place it into the blending chamber. Hold it upright for best results. The longer you hold the tip in the chamber, the greater the variance in your blend.
3. The color comes out of the tip in the lightest shades first and gets darker. If the ink is still too dark, make sure the tips are connecting in the chamber. Or try holding it longer.
4. To achieve a pleasant, finished look when coloring an image, start in the center and work outwards.
5. To create the detail in the hair, I started by drawing darker red lines with the bullet tip and then colored over it with the brush tip of the orange marker to soften the lines.
6. Using the Chameleon detail pen, I added the line details on the layot and the tiny dots that add life to the drawing.
Have a wonderful Saturday everyone.
In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art Scholarship. To date – one scholarship has been given through The Boys & Girls club of Calgary. This warms my heart knowing that Christy continues to spread gentle, caring and inspiring love through art in our world. Thank you so much to everyone who donates. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.
