Could it really be? Three consecutive days of blogging? Gasp!!
And I'm back with a new project.
And it involves two new (for me) techniques.
It's true. It's really true.
1. I used a Copic marker.
This is a big step for me! I've always liked coloring, yet Copics have scared me every time I've attempted to use them. But in this case I stuck with one color and didn't try to get fancy. I colored in the glass part of the stamped image to try and make it look a little like a Mason jar.
2. I painted with mist.
I was stumped on how to make the lid of the jar silvery, but then it dawned on me...I have silver mist! So I took a paint brush, dipped it in the mist and painted the lid silver. Problem solved!
Plus, I used 17 buttons! Buttons may soon overtake my craft room if I don't use some up or purge them from my stash. So, I consider using 17 on one project a pretty big accomplishment. :)
After this experience, I'm going to add "attend a Copic certification class" to my list of crafty goals. They really are a great product and I'd love to learn how to get all fancy with them.
What's on your crafty goal list?
