You are my Sunshine...

I thought this was appropriate... today was the first day in... a week? that the sun actually shone all day long. No afternoon thunderstorms or clouding up at 10:00 a.m. I'll bet it made for some nice Memorial Day Picnics... and sunburns! The high today was 91 degrees F. 

This journal page was made with only Copic Markers. The most recent issue of Cloth Paper Scissors had a few articles in it that inspired me. One article was on making the doodle type lettering and the other article was on using Copic Markers. Those suckers are expen$ive but I managed to complete a few 3-way colorways (thanks for HobbyLobby coupons) to help with the depth of shading. For example, you start with a light purple, add a medium purple as shading, then use the darkest purple to shade further. All those numbers on the caps? It's all secret code for the color families. Who knew?

Have a productive week everyone!


  1. I have some copic markers that were given to me as a gift, but they're so light in color that I'm not sure what to do with them. Your colors look bright and lovely!

  2. Hope our torrential rain this morning isn't headed your way!! It was in the 90's here yesterday, but at least we had a breeze. Love your pages and especially the word "you"!

  3. Fun lettering, great shading, love those bright colors!


I am so grateful for every single comment you leave. Thank you for hearing me.
