BUT i have been coloring with the polycolors and boy oh boy do i love them! the colors are just so vibrant and the color goes on so smooth and blendy! i am still using PTI paper. here are some things i have done recently - more info is on my blog if you want to check it out:
new release from SCACD
for the Make It Crafty celebration - you can find some prize opportunities on my blog from MiC too
this was for the last Through the Craft Room Door mag challenge - the full project is in the current issue. the challenge right now is fairytale themed
another SCACD release
on the Make it Crafty I tried PTI's rustic cardstock and i didn't like it - i couldn't get enough layers to get the depth of color i wanted.
can't figure out why the pics are so big - sorry!
Marti, I follow your blog, so I've seen these and they're just incredible! I have not dropped out of class, just had grandchildren it seems FOREVER! I'm finally getting back into the swing of things, and need to upload that technique of stamping on dark paper and then coloring w/pencils!
