Coloring with crosshatch patterns

Spectrum noir maya isaksson crosshatch pencils watermarked

I was looking through the Spectrum Noir blog for tutorials to try and found this on how to color with the pencils using a crosshatch pattern. I loved the look and wanted to give it a try. I found a really old rocket stamp by My Minds Eye and stamped it in light blue ink and started crosshatching. It was so much fun! I added some stars too and a background and a sentiment that went with the rocket.

I also covered the rocket in Clear Sparkle pen. Because it sparkles and I can't stop using it on everything. I hope you liked the look of this, I think it's a bit different and interesting.

See you soon again I hope!

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 and coloring. 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 ;)
