Trying something new

I love coloring images. I’ve been known to try out all kinds of mediums. I’ve been trying Pro Markers, Tombow, distress ink, inktense pencils and Copics. Probably some more too… I never tried the kind of pencils you blend with solvents like odourless mineral spirits though, but I always thought it looked kind of fun. Then I saw some youtube videos where they were using the new Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. It looked like so much fun! I was super happy when I got the chance to borrow all five sets from DESIGN in PAPERS to try them out. They are awesome, I really really like them! I haven’t had the chance to try them together with Copics yet but I think it might be fun too.


So, the other weekend I went to a crop on beautiful island Orust whith some scrappy friends. I had a great time, I love to go away to scrap a full day or two some times. I even won a challange, I’m so happy that people liked my card <3 But it was not this card, I got this Saturated Canary stamp from one of the shops at the crop. She reminds me of my daughter and I just had to have her! I colored this image at home after unpacking. I used the Spectrum Noir pens, I’m very happy with the result!

And now it’s friday afternoon and I just about done with my latest school assignment. Happy times! Also, I wanted to wish all of my american friends a very happy July 4th. I hope you all have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
