A Card and some News.

First up is some news….


After doing my demo on Promarkers last weekend I was asked if I would consider doing some private tuition, I thought long and hard on what techniques would be needed and I have planned a class for Saturday 20th August.


It will run from 10am until 3pm lunch and refreshments will be provided.


We will not be making a card, I want to fit as much technique in as possible.


The class will focus on blending skills, colouring skin, colouring hair, shading and shadows and background work.


6 Promarkers and a technique DVD will be included in the cost of the lesson. I was going to do some information sheets but I think sometimes visual is much better to learn from and the DVD will enable people to watch at their leisure and practice.


It will be held at Image-e-nation in Washington Tyne and Wear.


I do have a few places left on the class so if you want to brush up on your colouring skills.


Contact me at jakheath@gmail.com for more information.

Secondly my card, not sure if I like this one now but as my Mam loves it I thought I'd show it anyway. Another digital image stamp called Melissa from Funky Kits, coloured with Promarkers and used my airbrush to add a splash of colour to the background. A pretty ribbon and a chipboard flower to finish.

What a lovely card, wish I could colour like that. I'd love to come to your class but sadly too far away.

I don't know why you don't like the card Jak, it's gorgeous!!! I also am too far away to come for private lessons ( but would love too) If you ever think of selling the DVD i would buy it.

Oh Jak - how can you not love this card??? It is just gorgeous, I had to look twice as I thought it could not be a coloured image. Beautiful!!! I see someone has mentioned a DVD - any chance of that. Don't think I can justify a flight to the UK for a class!!! But would love to have access to some of your brilliant techniques. Take care, JennyH.

Sharon in Arizona said...

This is beautiful, Jak. I love your background - how creative of you!!! And I do love this little girl and how you've colored it!!! I'm so glad you posted it - more inspiration for all of us!!! Hugs, Sharon :o)

Crissie said...

Really great card. I would buy the tutorial DVD if you made it available.

Anonymous said...

I have to agree with everyone, Jak, this is another superbly coloured image. Your card is beautiful and just love the background and the font used on the sentiment. I, too, would buy your DVD if it was available to buy. I use promarkers and have so very much to learn about shading and colouring hair etc. Please give it a thought!

Oh Jak, can I add my plea that you press enough DVDs for all of us who live too far away to pop into your classes to be able to pick up the techniques. I would certainly buy it.
