Weekend workshop #65

Well what a week we have all had, I hope you are all safe, well and warm. It is not the best time to be going out so why not to finish all your christmas cards and if you are worried you don’t know how to use reds then we have a fab tutorial for you………Tracy has done a great tutorial for us this week, so over to Tracy :)


Hi Tracy here with a quick and very simple tutorial, using shades of red. As the man in red will be making an appearance next month, i thought i'd show you how i've coloured Santa's hat and coat with Promarkers.

I start with the areas i want darkest, then add each colour going over the previous colour and extending a little at a time into the white areas.
 work in a circular motion in and around the white areas using the blender pen.
Then go over the whole area to blend.
 Add shadows.
 Blend all over again.
I hope you'll find this useful when using reds on all your images.
Hugs Tracy x

There you go, I hope you all liked it.

Don’t forget we are still running our blog hop until Tuesday so if you have not joined in yet, why not pop over and take a look at the great prizes you could win.

We are going on our Christmas break now until after Christmas, so everyone at Passion for ProMarkers wishes you are very happy Christmas and new year

See you in 2011

Hugs Gina, Denise and the Design Team xxx
