Today I wanted to share a coloring video I made this weekend. If you have followed my blog you might know I have taken the ECCP Copic coloring classes and got really inspired. I decided to practice my coloring every day, and I have. Well, most days anyway. I'm really enjoying it too. So to make it more fun I thought I would make some videos, just sped up Copic coloring for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing. I usually just color up an image and put it in the pile of colored images (that might come in handy when I'm in a pinch for a quick card), but since I got the setup to record I thought it would be fun to see the progress. And to be honest, I've got this new MacBook Pro and I wanted to play with iMovie. After figuring it out I'm totally happy with it. It was way quicker to edit the video AND to upload it. But I miss the free soundtracks that came with my old program so it's a bit repetetive. I'll try to find some new music online that is free to use but I wanted to share my video ASAP so I hope it's not to annoying.
This is the card I made from the image I colored. The stamp is Saturated Canary. I love their digis. I usually print out 4 on a A4 sheet of paper and cut them apart to color one at a time. I carry all my markers in a camera bag so I'll ust pop a bunch of images in one of the side pockets along with the materail from the ECCP-classes and a color sheet where I can see all my colors at once. I'll take the whole bag up to the living room and color while watching tv with hubbie or between dinner and bed time when the kids are happy occupying themselves. Oh, I should mention that the video is sped up 4 times so it took me about 1 h 10 minutes to color this image.
I hope you like it. I'm curious if you would like more coloring videos or more general cardmaking/scrapbooking videos? I'm not a very organized cardmaker so editing the cardmaking videos takes a bit more time than just editing out the parts where I can't find the right markers in a coloring video. ;)
Well, that's it from me today. If you are wondering where my regular wednesday-post was missing this week it's because I'm stupid. My memory card reader died on me when I was going to import my pictures and I was a bit slow and did not realize I could connect the computer to the camera and just get them that way. I'm blaming school, I'm just finishing up my last engineering assignment and my brain hurts from all the thinking. I might have broken it in a few places.
See you another day I hope, thanks for stopping by!
