My computer was shut down and put aside for the day so I could do my coloring therapy.
I had so much fun trying this out I just had to share. I didn't plan on doing 2 entries today, but I just had to share, and because of the way the water color pencils changed when you use the paintbrush, I took several photos as I worked so you could see the changes with me. The set my sister got me has several suggestions you can try. One is with the paintbrush as you'll see today, another is with damp paper and yet another is to use a spray bottle, I'll likely try all three, but today is just the paintbrush.
I think my sister picked out just the perfect books to try different mediums on. Sherri Baldy has simple drawings which are quick to color and then using further methods just adds to the fun. The only issue I had with this so far is the absence of perforated pages because if it's a book to share that would make it easier to remove pages to share with friends or loved ones. At some point I may have to get chalks to try with this book as well, but that's not something in the works yet. For now, sharing time!
At any rate, have fun testing out your creativity and don't forget to share!!!
