Weight Watchers Points (Plus)



I've tried this - it does not work. :o) Everyone has to count his/her own points.  I had fun coloring this little scene using a variety of mediums. I used Copics Markers, Spectrum Noir Markers Distress Ink Pads,  chalks, and more...

When coloring with a variety of mediums, here are some general tips:
  • Color with alcohol inks first, so you do not risk damaging the tip.
    Use a light touch, build color.
  • Considering if mediums are wet or dry...If wet, need to work timely to blend. If dry, have more time. 
  • Start with a small amount, you can always add more.
  • Combine two or more!! No limit on mediums per art piece!!   Use your artistic license and have fun!

Here' what I did:

  • Laid down color with markers first (to identify colors, I underlined Copic, and to the right of the "-"  are the Spectrum Noir) . I colored skin & glasses (C3, C5, E000, E00, E11, E13, R21);  hair E08, 57, E77, E79 - TN8, DR7); dishes & table cloth BG11, BG13, C1; cake, hats, dresses R24, R81, Y11, Y13 - PL1, PL2; lipstick R24 - DR7
  •  Use pastels on dresses and hats
  •  Use metallic pens on jewelry
  •   To create shadow around scene, use blender tool with vintage photo Distress Ink pad - light touch
The design paper is from BasicGrey.

 Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
