30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 29 – More watercolor fun

logoHello and happy Sunday! I am just home from my in-laws and wanted to make sure I posted my day 29 coloring from yesterday. I did not color today so can’t finish up today as planned.

Yesterday I spent the day crafting with a bunch of my crafty girlfriends and thought I would continue playing with watercolors. It is always so much fun to spend a day playing with your craft stuff surrounded by friends that are just as crazy about this stuff as you are.


I have to say I wasn’t very confident but pushed through the process.

day29bI took a page out of one of my coloring books and used my Inktense water color pencils to color it in. I used my waterbrush because it was small. I definitely feel like I need to keep practicing so that I can get the colors to blend better and learn to control the color better.

I tried a coloring directly on the paper and then adding water and then I tried rubbing my brush on the pencil and I think that worked better. It allowed for better control and less streaking.

I won’t give up. I know I am hard on myself since I am so used to my Copics but I feel that with time I can feel more comfortable with water coloring.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to find a dress for my girlfriend’s wedding so no coloring but I would like to finish this challenge by Wednesday.

Well I am off to go watch the series finale of Downton Abbey!

Good night.
