Holiday Stamp #1

Happy Holidays to all my family and friends! Today and the next three Thursdays I have a holiday gift for those who love Copics and coloring. Today’s image is a pair of winter mittens. I created them fairly plane figuring that many would enjoy adding their own designs and patterns.

Gasenfude, Yep I like this pen!

October 29, 2016 |  by  |  Copics, Doodling  |  2 Comments

So a while back I introduced the Gasenfude pen from Copic. It is a nylon brush pen that has a rich black ink that is compatible with Copic markers. Yay! Since then I have been doing a lot of brush lettering practice with it.

If you have not yet heard we are introducing a hand lettering workshop for the 2017 season and I am trying to “brush up” on my lettering skills ha ha. The Gasenfude is a great practice tool for me because it takes A LOT of pressure control to get the lettering right. or at least somewhat presentable. Mine a certainly not perfect, but the Gasenfude is helping me get better!

I am thinking of trying to do a gratitude journal through November and only allowing myself to use the Gasenfude to keep me progressing and practicing!

Then I was TOTALLY inspired by both Jennifer Dove and Michele Boyer and there creative use of the Gasenfude pen. They both created images and colored them in with their Copics. Jen even shared the image she created with all her viewers (over at her blog linked above hint hint)

I figured what a spectacular idea so I created a small pile of 5 winter/holiday images that I will debate weekly at my blog and have a photo tutorial to go with each over at Copic In The Craft Room. Here is a sneaky peek of what I came up with.

Nothing fancy, just quick easy and fun. I love the varying thicknesses that the Gasenfude creates and the hand drawn look that it showcases on the images. So the first of these will debut Thursday November 17th and run 4 Thursdays in a row, yes even Turkey day. There might be a 5th just not sure if I am liking one of the images.
