Hi crafty friends,
I want to show you my DT post for Copic Marker Europe this month. It's an album I altered to create a special Christmas gift for my sister to give to her hubby. They are going to celebrate their baby's first christmas and she wanted to give him a special album. She chose this lovely Mo Manning image (and the pink designpapers...lol), and I had lots of fun creating a whole scene using my Copic Markers. I wanted to make them walk the journey of life together. I put a poem about that inside the cover.
Here's my album. I printed the image in a bigger size to cover the front page. I used just a few dies to decorate so the image could be in focus. The sentiment says: To the best daddy in the world!
The image is "Father and daughter" by Mo's digital pencil.
I googled the words "man walking on road" on google images, and I found a picture to use for inspiration (not copy, just for inspiration to help me with the lines in the image). I draw a few lines using a pencil to create the road and the scenery, very lightly not to ruin my tips.

I used different shades of green to create depth in the picture. And I used my W's to make mountains in the background. To create the grass and ground i used the dotting technique in many shades of green on the grass and E 30-35 to create a sense of movement and depth.
Hair, shoes, belt, road: E37-35-33-31-30
Dress, flowers: E889-85-83-81
Grass: G99-94-82-46-43-40-21, YG67-03
Sky: B60, C1, W00
I had lots of fun creating this scene, I have never done this before, but I think it turned out okay. So my advice is: Don't be afraid to try!
Hope you got inspired to play with your markers!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
