I recently found a tablet of student grade drawing paper in my closet and thought I'd give it a try with Prismacolor pencils, no Gamsol. Maybe next time I'll try it with Gamsol as there were some imperfections in this paper which made it difficult to fill in all the nooks and crannies. The dotty background was done with Copic markers.
I am trying to get better with pencil coloring as I think they may be a good travel medium. I fixed up a tote bag -- lightweight yet roomy. No concerns about a Copic marker running dry or going gummy in the middle of coloring. Just sharpen the pencil and continue on.
To sweeten things up I mounted the framed Dahlia on a card base covered with Mintay Lovely Day designer paper. You know I love my Mintay. It's art that can make itself useful. So beautiful. I've added four new pads to my collection, sigh...
Once more... The Flower Challenge #32 -- Embossing (heat or dry). As mentioned earlier, I heat embossed the frame and sentiment, and dry embossed the image panel.
Supply list below my signature. I hope you're having a lovely spring day!
