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