30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Today is the FIRST day of a THREE DAY blog hop to jumpstart your creativity. If you’re new to the coloring challenge or have any questions about the coloring challenge you can refer to this post.

If you are coming from the talented Lisa Tilson’s blog you are in the right place. To start at the beginning of the hop go to The Daily Marker’s blog.

This is the 6th coloring challenge and I’ve participated in all of them.  I totally love this challenge. It allows me to really focus on my coloring.  Whether it be with crayons, color pencils, markers, watercolors and/or watercolor crayons I get to focus on one thing at a time and really try my best to understand the medium I’m using.

For the last challenge I only used watercolors to color my images!  I had a lot of fun learning all about how the colors mix together.

Take a look at some of my coloring from the last challenge a couple of months ago:

For this current challenge, I decided not to use any stamped images.  I will use Adornit’s Art Play Paintables.  They are ready to be colored with any medium.

I’m using my Prismacolor pencils.  I have 132 of them and only use them once!!  It is time to take them out and play with them.  I just bought a online class from Kit and Clowder and they use those pencils too so that will help as well.

I might make a card or two this year but I really just love coloring!  So we will see what these cute paintable sheets will turn out to be.

Take a look at what I’ve done for Day One of this new challenge:

Here is Day Two:

I’m having so much fun with my coloring!

Here is what I’ve learned thus far:

  1. Mixing coloring isn’t so bad.  Just try it!
  2. Prismacolor pencils are super soft and you must be careful with this pencil.  The slightest pressure can break the tip of this pencil.
  3. With Gamsol, blending out the colors are super easy.

  1. Gorgeous colouring and I love your colour choice! I have the same set of pencil crayons and I’ve only used them once as well, maybe I will break them out too.

  2. Wonderful cards or whatever you plan to use them for! I especially like the ‘love’ colors and blending. The Happy Birthday is cute, too. I think I’d mat and layer the Love and put it in a frame. Excellent job! Thank you for sharing!!!

  3. I meant to comment on the Gamsol as I’ve not heard of it before. I’m assuming it’s an extender like Dove Blender? I’ll be on the lookout for it. Thank you!

  4. Just guessing, but I think that from the choice of colors and images, we might be kindred spirits, at least in the card making world. I wouldn’t change a thing! Bright, bold and beautiful. I am going to have to pull out my Prismacolors again! (Everything in cycles, right? I’ve been using my w/c pencils a lot lately, so it must be time to switch!) Thank you.

  5. Thank you for sharing what you’ve learned about the pencils…I find them to be frustrating at best most days. I will need to try the Gamsol..your coloring is LOVELY!

  6. Love coloring with pencils, I have learned a lot since I first started using them. Your cards are so cute. Thanks for sharing with us!

  7. Looks like you’re off to an exceptional start with your colouring, Kymona! I have some Prismacolours that need attention, so you’ve definitely given me incentive to do so! You’re the second person today featuring these Adornit images…perhaps a sign that I need to do some investigating! Thank you for the wonderful colouring inspiration!

  8. Your coloring is gorgeous! I have just bought prismacolor pencils and am trying to learn how to use them best. Thanks for sharing!
