Creativation 2017 was a great show with lots of opportunity to see the newest trends. Coloring books are still raging in the craft industry and Leisure Arts joined us at our Media Prime Event to share what they have new and provided a book and a pack of coloring pencils to play with. Thank you again for being a sponsor of this amazing event that allows media, bloggers and industry influencers to meet in one place and exchange information. DISCLAIMER: I was compensated with product without any requirements and project is of my own doing without guidelines and any opinions are that of my own without influence.
Now on to one of my favorite past times, coloring...
I wanted to do something a bit different than just coloring some pages in the book. I had this idea of coloring a portion of a page and making it into a card. I found a cute turtle page that I adored and got busy coloring. Check out how I made this card and one other in this post.
First of all, the array of colors in the 24 pack was excellent and the smoothness of the pencils was really nice and this is from a colored pencil snob.
After coloring a section, I cut it out to fit the front of the card.
I inked around the edges prior to adhering with Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry to the card.
Done the same way, another card. The possibilities are endless!
