Well, hello crafters! I couldn’t help myself, I had to sneak in another video into my mini Halloween Series. Actually, I created this card about half a year ago (can you tell just how busy I am, that I only get around to share this now?!) but the color scheme fits so well into my halloween theme, and the technique I am showing I learned from Kit and Clowder – so to remind you that you still have a few days left to use my coupon to get a discount – here’s the video! (Phew, that was a long sentence!!)
I hadn’t even intended to use different kinds of folds on this image by Gorjuss, but there you go: ABA (Art by Accident). I simply wanted to experiment with applying color to one or both sides of a fold, and that’s what came of it. Totally different folds/pleats for completely different effects.
Now, don’t get me wrong: I certainly didn’t come up with that by myself, but it had been a while since I had done that particular class in Kit and Clowder (there’s a HUGE class covering all sort of clothing) and this was just to practice again. I feel that if I don’t use a technique for a long time, I need a refresher to remember where and how to place my strokes.
I had a terrific time coloring this image up. It’s the perfect size to give you space to work on your flicks, and at the same time it’s not so big that you feel like you’re painting a mural. (This is a regular sized Gorjuss stamp, not one of them minis.)
Coupon for Kit and Clowder & Grande Prize
I have an in-depth review of the classes I took here, if you want to check that out first.
Use the code julia10 to get 10% off when you purchase a class at Kit and Clower. The coupon is valid until and throughout October 31. You can apply this coupon to all full coloring classes (“Hair and Skin”, “Clothes”, “Perfecting Pencils”, and many many more), but not towards the Create And Learn monthly subscription. If you are a Create and Learn subscriber already and want to purchase previous monthly classes, you can use the coupon for those, though.
As a Grande Prize Alyce will be giving away a full coloring class for free to one person who leaves comments on my little coloring series for Halloween (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4). If you have already purchased a class with the coupon, you can get a full refund for your purchase, so no reason to hold off! The winner will be announced here November 1.
Just because I feel some of you don’t realize this, I am going to repeat this: You can use the coupon ALREADY to buy a class! Should you win the Grand Prize, you can either get another class or a refund for the one you already purchased. Don’t hold back 🙂
