Bright Airbrushing

I feel like my Copics have been neglected lately so I decided that I wanted to do something with them, but didn't have the patience to sit and color.  I pulled out the airbrush and just started in.

I picked out the eight fluorescent markers and layer down an air brush based with one of the lighter shades.  Then I grabbed some stencils and just started airbrushing away.  Here's what I ended up with:

Now when I started the airbrushing I had an idea in mind to do a little masking and use black gesso.  So I just kept airbrushing until I was happy with the background.  I cut out the work 'love' from some masking paper on my Silhouette and put that on the pages.  I added some wash tape on the top and bottom of the page and the covered it all in black gesso.  When I removed the masking paper and wash tape, I added a little white paint pen and some scallops with a brush marker to end up with my final page:

Good to feel like I finally got some crafting in!

This is for the challenge over at MarkerPop this week as well.

Egg monsters!

I've been spending chunks of time working on projects around the house (and avoiding wallpaper that just won't come down!), so my crafting seems to have taken a back seat. Instead of paper crafting I've picked up the crochet hook while watching tv so thought I'd share these little guys.

Love them! Here's the pattern if you want to make some of your own.
