Wonderful Wednesday Throwback: Macaron Bouquet Video

I’m still working hard on the new release, so today I’m throwing it back to a great video from last year, in which I share a couple of really useful ideas. Firstly I talk about the benefits of using photo references when colouring. Secondly I show you how to create a sparkly effect without using any glitter pens or glitter.

Wonderful Wednesday: Flying Gnome in Coloured Pencil Video

Flying Gnome Coloured Pencil Card

While Flying Gnome is still on offer as the January Stamp of the Month, I thought I would revisit him using coloured pencils.

It’s just such a fun image. I love the movement and the quirkiness. I also love colouring gnome beards – you can see me colouring this one in the video below, but I also have a video demonstrating a few different approaches to colouring beards or fur using coloured pencil HERE. If Copic markers are your thing, I have a similar video using those HERE.
