Fall Harvest

I’m just loving the richness of today’s image….Fall Harvest. I colored this new Saturday Evening Post image with my Copic markers and tried a little airbrush on it too.   Now that I have that tool back on my desk…it’s hard to stay away from!It’s super cold here again today. Brrrr….I’m pulling out the winter coats and boots and mits.

I also want to tell you about the new CHF Creative Blog. I’m really excited about this new place to share information and designs and today is a great day to celebrate with us. Make sure you stop by and comment as Becky has a lot of wonderful raks to hand out!

Fall Harvest


To create this design, I first colored in my image and then added my airbrushing to add texture.


To create a splatter effect with the Copic Airbrush, you can insert the brush end of the Copic marker and get a very splattered effect. In the photo below, the spray on the right show the chisel end results as compared to the brush end on the left. Also… if you take the chisel end and use a medium brown marker, you can get a nice soft inked effect around the outside of your image. It’s similar to sponging in stamping and burning in photography.


Quick Tip: Always practice first on a scrap piece of paper before airbrushing. You wouldn’t want to spoil your artwork.

Thanks for stopping by!
