Gems - Tutorial


http://yogiemp.com/NittyGritty/images/GemsTutorial.pdf
I'll be showing the gals at our next get together how I draw and color my gems. I love drawing them and adding the doodling around them. Relaxing and fun...

Click on the image to download a full size printable PDF file of the tutorial or click HERE for the file. Enjoy

The gems done on white paper are from a good quality sketch paper pad with no name... the black is Recollections brand cardstock.  The brownish paper is Bee paper Bogus Recycled Sketch paper.

All gems were colored with Prisma colored pencils which I find are the best and have lots of wax within them for god blending/merging of color. An optional pencil is Derwent Artist (not Derwent Studio). Most other pencils don't have enough wax in them and you will probably struggle trying to achieve the results you want.

On the black and brownish paper, I first put a light layer of white pencils.

Doodling done with a micron .01 pen or a Zig Writer. The white is a Sakura Gelly Roll Med gel pen.

MC Mar/17 - Yellow Rose - ECD Friends - Those Who Find

I came across this tattoo image of a rose (eltattooartist on Deviant Art) and had an urge to do some coloring... so I printed it out on white cardstock and this is the result.

Side folded the white card to make a 5"w x 7" h card. Colored the image with Prisma colored pencils. The backgrond was too bare so I randomly embossed using my hard rubber mallet and Darrice "Bricks" embossing folder. Hit the high points with Distress "Tea Dye" and then sponged a bit of "Ground Espresso", then a touch of "Mustard Seed".

A while back I die cut a whole whack of Quietfire Design words (also available from Elizabeth Craft Designs), and this was one cut from some scrapbook paper... which I then adhered onto a black layer, slightly offset. Friends and on Quietfire Design HERE

On the inside stamped the rose ("The Earth Laughs In Flowers" 2 pce set) and colored with Derwent Inktense colored pencils, moving the color around with a wet paintbrush.  Stamped the quote (" Always Be My Friend..." 3pce set) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Then randomly stamped around everything with the "crackle stamp. Sponged some brown around everything. (all stamps from Quietfire Design)
