30 Days of Coloring Inspiration

 The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge 2 Started June 1st. Each day Kathy Racoosin posted a Card, Coloring Technique, Video or Give Away along with a daily challenge for everyone to enjoy coloring for 10 minutes. Her blog is The Daily Marker

Here are just a few of the projects I completed this month while enjoying Kathy's challenge.

Distress Paint, Distress Inks, Embossing and Distress Markers and Glitter Paste with Wildflower Stencil
During the month of June I would visit Kathy's blog. There was always something new. Some days she posted a card or a technique filled video and some days she would have a give away. I started strong with the goal of coloring something everyday. I posted my work on Instagram with her hashtag #thedailymarker30day2.

Distress Markers, Perfect Pearls Mist Forever Blue and White Embossing Powder

Gelatos and White Embossing Powder
 I did color something most days and made several cards.

 Collection Portfolio Cover using techniques from "A Compendium of Curiosities" by Tim Holtz

I also worked on my Collection Folio using some of my favorite techniques from my copy of Tim Holtz's first book "A Compendium Of Curiosites".

Prismacolor Color Pencils
I also colored in my copy of "Enchanted Forest" by Johanna Basford. 

Comparing Distress Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gelatos with Winnie and Walter Stamp
One day Kathy posted a Copic marker color combo comparison chart. Since I don't used Copics, I decided to make a little chart comparing my favorite coloring mediums.

Even when Kathy is using her Copics I learn a lot from her about color combinations, shading and lighting, blending, design and composition. Kathy makes beautiful cards.

 It has been a fun month for me as far as coloring goes. Well actually June has just been an all around fun month. Not only have I been able to spend a lot of time coloring, I have been able to spend time with family, some of which I haven't seen in a while, celebrated my sister's birthday with her and visited with old friends.

 If you like to color stamped images and especially if you are wondering about Copic markers or water coloring techniques be sure to check out Kathy's blog The Daily Marker. And here is a link to her compilation of the challenge with the cards she created each day along with links to each post While you're there be sure to look around. Kathy is always posting something beautiful on her blog. After all she loves to color and she is very good at it.
