30 Day Coloring Challenge – Coloring with Pencils






Today is Day 1 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge on Kathy’s The Daily Marker blog. I’m not sure if I can keep up, but it’s a great incentive to play.

Today I decided to try my hand with coloring with colored pencils. I just got a great set of Prismacolor Premier pencils that I haven’t had a chance to use.

I made this cute card to send to my daughter. As a first attempt with the pencils, it didn’t come out too badly, but I learned afterwards I would have more success with layering the colors on a paper with more tooth. Another lesson learned. I will be back at the coloring board soon for another attempt with the pencils. I definitely like them and want to improve.
