Hey guys, we're doing a colour combo challenge over at Flat Friends this month - I've been so nervous about this one as I'm finally joining the real world of colouring by hand instead of on my PC. It was my birthday this month so my family and friends gave me money so I could start my Copic collection :-) It's been a week of colouring and I'm already addicted - I can't believe how much I'm enjoying it!!
I have to say, mind you, that it has been a nerve wracking process getting this first colouring card out of the way - every time I would finish a section I was happy with I had to take a ten minute break to calm my nerves before starting the next bit as I was certain I was going to mess it up and have to start from scratch each time :-) This final copy took some getting to and I was a bag of nerves when I was cutting my digi out - it was like that feeling you get when you're by the edge of a cliff and start panicking you might accidentally jump off - I kept thinking I was going to cut an arm off or something! :-D
I look forward to continuing with this new hobby - I've had so many tips and guidance from lovely friends on the web and just had to mention 1 lady in particular as I'm pretty sure I've worn her Youtube videos out this week - her name is Alyce Keegan and you can find her tutorials HERE. I've found these tutorials hugely helpful - I had no idea what I was doing this time last week and now I feel like I'm on my way :-D
Hope you all have a lovely December - I'm off to get my Christmas decorations up and listen to some cheesy Christmas tunes :-) Lots of love, Em xxx
