Marker Geek Monday: #TheDailyMarker30Day Round Up with Videos and Colour Maps

Hey folks! Elaineabella here with another Marker Geek Monday post to get the week off to the right start…a colourful one!

This week I’ve got a bit of a round up post for you. You may or may not be aware that I have been participating in the wonderful challenge #TheDailyMarker30Day hosted by the equally wonderful Kathy Racoosin. Every day since the start of July as a little personal twist on the challenge I have been colouring a Stamping Bella image and filming the colouring process. The challenge is almost over, and I have only missed one day. This means that I have a nice collection of videos, coloured images and colour maps to go with those images! Since you may have missed some of the colouring action over the course of the last month, I thought it might be a good idea to share here and make sure you don’t miss out on any of the inspiration.

Today’s #TheDailyMarker30Day Colouring:

Here’s my colouring for today, Day 28 of the challenge. I decided to have some fun and colour an old favourite. It’s a nice way to loosen up before starting on all the colouring I need to work through for the next release. 😉

Stamp: Flower for a True Friend (incl sentiment).

I coloured the image with my trusty Copic markers, and here’s the Copic Colour Map showing all the colours I used:

#TheDailyMarker30Day Coloured Images & Colour Maps:

The rest of my coloured images and the Copic Colour Maps (and one pencil map) for them can be found on my blog. Click through to my #TheDailyMarker30Day page to view them all in one handy location.

Please feel free to save the images or pin them on Pinterest for reference. Please do not download and share them however – instead direct people to this blog post or directly to the page on my blog so they can obtain them that way. Thank you!

Next time Kathy hosts the colouring challenge, I highly recommend joining in. For me it has been a great way to motivate myself to film more colouring videos and get them uploaded on YouTube. It has also been a great way to get myself excited about social media and sharing again too. Plus, I’ve learned some new things about the filming process and things I’d like to improve as I create more videos and content to share with you. For you, the challenge might be a good excuse to dedicate just a little time to colouring each day, and to get out there and share your work. Remember – it’s all about practice, so any small ways you can get yourself practicing can be a massive help.

    I haven’t figured out how to use my Copics yet and I only have 4 or 5. I wish I had more but right now I can’t afford to buy them unless they go on sale and even then…. I have to go on YouTube and see how to make my markers do what all my friends make their markers do. My friends said they took classes but there aren’t any in my area. However, with only 4 or 5 markers it would be a waste to spend money on classes until I get more. For now YouTube will have to do. I love what you did with your markers!
    I broke my foot so participating in the coloring challenge was a given. I was able to participate every day! Now if I had only done a whole bunch my Christmas cards! LOL I can’t wait for the next challenge!
