2101  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing ATC Swap Discussion Thread for 2013! on: November 04, 2013 07:37:47 AM
 I have to say I am a Copic whore, so remember that when you read this post.  Wink I prefer those to any other marker just for their amazing quality and variety of colors. They do cost a lot, but SO worth it if drawing and rendering is what you really enjoy doing.
 That being said, have you looked into PrismaColor markers? They now have the brush tips that I find a complete must have. And you can get those at Michaels and use the coupon or find them on sale periodically. They would be my runner up for markers. I have never used the Delta's so I can't comment on those. Are they alcohol based?
 As for paper, I have used the markers paper but find I prefer the "manga" paper or Comic paper. It will let you blend, no bleading, no peeling. Love that stuff. It has a good thickness to it but use the correct side! If not it tends to streak easier.
 If you're getting streaks, use (or get) a colorless blender if it's available in the markers you chose (and I wouldn't chose a brand without one). Just remember, it's an eraser! It blends by removing.
 I have to agree with Cosmicgirl. Get a good gray scale set. Even if you don't have the exact color to shade with you can use the gray's. I have a fondness for grayscale anyway and tend to just do those and I am happy.
 And my last bit of advice, layer, layer, layer. Don't be afrais to layer. I need to do that more and I tend to stop myself when I know I should do more.
 
 PS. Love the word befuddled vincentvanbuck. I use it all the time, one of my favorite words! It's so fun to say!!!!  Grin

Whew! You were busy wendiek! I like the contreastic fabric on the first one. They work together perfectly.
 And the clutch is adorable.
 Fantastic job on all three!

 Got to work on my project last night and I got a good amount of it done before I had to stop for crafting reasons. I am going to do some tweaks and touch ups tonight. Then I will set it aside and come back to it in about a week to see what else needs to be done. I feel like it needs something else but I am not sure. Going to have to hide it from myself or I will never figure it out.  Tongue

 I am packing away. Think I am going to unpack it all and try to organize it a little better this weekend.

 Had to go emergency Halloween Custome shopping for the hubby last night so no work done on the swap. Tonight there will be progress I hope.  Cool

 I started on yours last night too Kwality570! I got the base done. I have my fingers crossed that it works out like I planned. It is so far off from what I normally do. My hubby is very interested in it. Which is odd because there no nudity. LOL!
 I went out at lunch and got a couple things to continue on it tonight. I am excited to get home and work! Fingers crossed I can pull this off!

 That is a beautiful package. The Priness Bride is so classic. I haven't read Eragon but I hear it is really good. The headband is very pretty.

 Very cool and I love the backgrounds. Did you cut out the girls and paste them on top?

 That's adorable. If you couldn't guess I am a big fan of Ghostbusters as well.  Wink How big is it?
