Daisy Bee - Spectrum Noir ColourTint and Prismacolor pencils colouring by Leigh!

Hiya Creative Friends
I love Spring in southern California🌸
The riot of colourful wildflowers everywhere is a beautiful sight, especially the wild daisies which were the inspiration for my latest release, Daisy Bee🐝

 For today's inspiration I'm sharing Daisy Bee all coloured up with Spectrum Noir ColourTint pencils and Prismacolor pencils with white gel pen highlights.


These are the colours of the wild daisies surrounding my home, aren't they beautiful!  It was so relaxing to loose myself in the pure joy of colouring up all those petals🌸


 I printed Daisy Bee out onto a sheet of Spectrum Noir premium pencil cardstock trimmed to 8.5" x 11" to fit my printer, the pad size is 9 x 12 inches.   I watercoloured the daisies, the bee and background with Spectrum Noir ColourTint pencils and Derwent waterbrushes then added detailing and shading with Prismacolor pencils and finished off with white gel pen highlights.  I've matted the finished piece onto black cardstock and will later add a colour coordinating mat ready for framing.


Both of the new designs are available at LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique at a special intro price good thru April 28!
Please note this sale can't be combined with other discounts!

Tutorial Tuesdays: Oddleigh Birthday Celebrations Accordion Book by Nan!

Hiya Creative Friends!
We're celebrating LeighSBDesigns 1st Birthday this month🎉  Enter the Birthday Card Contest using the provided FREEBIE for the chance to win one of 3 prizes sponsored by LeighSBDesigns, Simply B Stamps and Ike's Art!  Check out all the Birthday Celebrations HERE!  The contest ends on April 22nd, you don't want to miss it😋

PLUS, if you're a LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique customer already then check your Etsy Conversation inboxes, you all have received Birthday pressies🎉


The Oddleighs are having a wonderful time celebrating our 1st birthday🎉
Just look at this fabulous mixed media accordion fold book created by LeighSBDesigner Nan for today's Tutorial Tuesday segment🎉
  

1.  Create an accordion fold book from cardstock with panels that each measure 5" x 5" and add a 1/2 an inch flap on both ends.

2.  Decorate the panels with assorted stamps inked with your favorite colors.

3.  Apply soft body or craft acrylic paint with an old credit card over to each panel and let it dry.

4.  Apply white acrylic paint or gesso over Step 3 and let it dry.


5. Print out all the Oddleigh Girls, the Oddleigh Cherished Heart border, Oddleigh Flower's flowers and the Fireworks that come with both the Oddleigh July 4th and New Year sets and the Birthday Card Contest FREEBIE and color everything with markers and colored pencils.  Fussy cut all the images, except the FREEBIE, and adhere them to the book panels.

6.   Ink up the panel edges with your favorite ink pads or use acrylic paint applied with a sponge.


7.  Cut 4 pieces of cardstock measuring 7" x 7" for the front and back covers plus 2 panels of the same size from a cereal box.

8.  Emboss the front and back cardstock covers and then glue them to the cereal box panels to make the book covers nice and sturdy.

9.  Apply glue to the 1/2 inch flaps on the ends of the accordion book and attach the front and back covers.  To give the book a nice finished look cover the other side of the cereal box panels with the last 2 pieces of cardstock and hide the glued flaps.

10.  Attach 2 pieces of ribbon to the front cover of the book.  Leave enough ribbon loose on the ends to be able to wrap around the book and tie with knots or bows to keep the book closed.  Then finish off by attaching the FREEBIE image to the front cover with foam tape.


Undo the bow and enjoy the Oddleigh party🎉

Supplies used
TouchNew alcohol markers
Spectrum Noir markers
Cardstock
