Weekend Workshop #42 - Digi Friday

Welcome to another Digi Friday here at the PfP Weekend Workshop, and we have more treats in store for you, but before I tell you about that, we'll announce the winner from last week's Digi Friday, drumroll please....




Congratulations Maree, please can you email Debbi as soon as possible to arrange your prize from Pollycraft.

So, on with this week's treats, our generous sponsor this week is Digistamp Boutique and all you need to do to win some gorgeous digital stamps is... leave a comment - yes, it's that simple.


And the other treat this week is a fabulous tutorial from Maria, who has focussed on adding pattern to a coloured image, so, over to Maria....


I chose 'Lizzie with Flowers' from the DigiStamp Boutique for next week's Passion for Promarkers challenge, and in my tutorial I'd particularly like to show you how I added a pattern to Lizzie's dress.

Steps 1-3. Colour Lizzie's skin with Ivory, then add shading with Blush, and a spot of Pastel Pink on her cheeks, finally blending the colours together with another layer of Ivory.




Steps 4-6. Colour her hair with Tan, then add shading with Caramel and Walnut, and blend together with Caramel.



Steps 7-8. Colour the flowers with Baby Pink and shade with Carmine, then blend the colours together with Baby Pink. Follow the same steps for colouring the leaves and grass, but using Leaf Green, and Marsh Green for shading.




Steps 9-10. Colour Lizzie's dress with Duck Egg, and add shading with Denim. To add the polka dots, hold your Blender pen vertically and touch the very tip of your nib wherever you would like to place a spot. The Blender will have lifted some of the colour from the dress, and will leave you with a dotty pattern!


I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial this week, and thank you very much, Sally-Ann, for the gorgeous image, which I've enjoyed working with very much.

Maria xx
