Falling for Letraset ProMarkers

Letraset Blog

I adore the changing colors of fall!  The oranges, rusts, burgundy, faded and dark greens; even purples!  The layout is done by stamping with coloring and blending.
I know my students are afraid to do any kind of blending with ProMarkers.  I tell them they can just start out by coloring as though they were coloring in a coloring book.  Single shades are OK, then they can progress to using the one marker to do a little deeper shading.  Eventually helping them to work with actual shading.  This is a simplified art piece to show just that.  A little one color and some basic shading.
Here is the link to the ProMarker Color Chart.  There is a blank one as well so you can keep track of the colors you have.  These are a good tool to see which colors and shades you’d like to use.

Art is stamped on Letraset’s nonbleeding paper pad.  I leave white space open so I can play with the look of color shade combinations.  The falling leaves from the tree are done in different colors (non-shaded) to represent the changing of some but not all leaves.  Light shading on the background of the sunny day and the grass.

I continue to color the image.  The pumpkin has layers of yellow and oranges.  Canary is the yellow I used.

Continue coloring doing light shading in some areas and one color in others.  Pick colors you enjoy and go together with the theme.  A color wheel or studying a bit of color theory can help you better choose your colors.  (Creative Art Concepts for Papercrafts – C&T Publishing)

This is the finished colored art.

The ProMarkers can be used on many surfaces (as you have seen in my post of September 29th).  Here I use white pigment ink, over wood, heat set and then color with ProMarkers!
ProMarkers were used to accent the background paper in random areas, and on the chipboard pieces.
Everyone is on their on level as far as their art journey.  I admire those who are way ahead of me in talents and I learn more and more everyday from this blog and the Letraset site.  My beginners feel like their work is “magic,” as they learn to go from simple to complex!
