Confession: the coloring part is my favorite. I am in love with my Copics and enjoy coloring everything that I can. Laying out cards and scrapbook layouts runs a distant second. So, with each new release, I usually wind up with several fully colored, homeless images.
My daughter and I have been Smash booking together, so the idea hit me to create a Smash book for all of the misfit images I have left over after each stamp release. I’ve started with the Mythology set, and included my color selections, and details about the other projects that found homes outside of the book.
Books like these are not only a great keepsake to remember my DT work, it also lets me track my progression as a colorist, and remember good color combinations. The Smash book is from K&Co., the images are Guy Gondron for CMS.
I hope this inspires you to start your own catalog of misfit images! Here’s a cute little griffin from our Mythology set to get you started! (As a side note, you are welcome to “pin” any of the projects and tutorials that appear on this blog onto Pinterest, but our artists would appreciate it if you did NOT pin our freebies. Thank you!)
