TIPS & IDEAS FOR VOICES IN MY HEAD

Do you struggle with watercoloring skin tones or aligning images with the “naked eye”? Julie is here to share some super helpful tips for all that and more with her new Summer of Stamping Release stamp sets!  Voices in My Head Accessories, Voices In My Head Vol. 3 (sentiments) and Mini Voices in My Head are designed to compliment and coordinate with the original Voices In My Head for tons of creative options!


NB is in reference to “No blending necessary”; B is in reference to blending or diluting a color with a waterbrush on a non-porous surface first, and then applying to the image.

Let’s face it:  Right now, we’re not living in normal times.  Who knew toilet paper would become such a hot commodity? Or that we’d be gathering “virtually” on a regular basis?   BUT, we can still find ways to reach out and stay in touch with friends and family, even if we can’t be together in person, by sending cards filled with humor and a whole lotta’ love.

TIPS:

  • Trim out the expanse of blank photopolymer on the laptop image to make inking and stamping the image easier.
  • The laptop image from Voices In My Head Accessories is versatile in that it can be used as a screen, or viewed as the “lid”.
  • The images from the Accessories set can easily be used as stand-alones in conjunction with the sentiments from Voices In My Head Vol. 3
  • Nearly all of the sentiments from Voices in My Head Vol. 3 can fit within the laptop screen.
  • Mini Voices in My Head features many options for facial expressions and different hairstyles; watch the video to see how she aligns them quickly and easily.
  • Julie shares a visual cheat-sheet for watercoloring skin tones with Clean Color Real Brush Markers—she encourages you to experiment to find combinations that work for you.

    Thanks for doing this – all great tips! Just wondering what paper you use with the Zigs? There’s not too much water involved, so………Can’t wait to get this new release. You continue to amaze, girlfriend!

      Hey, sweet lady! My preferred watercolor paper is Canson XL 140# because it seems to perform the best all around with all the watercolor mediums I tend to use: Zig Clean Color Real Brush, Kuretake Gansai Tambi, Peerless, Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors, and water-based ink pads pressed against a non-porous surface (then loaded onto paint brush).
