LOL I was wondering that too!!
Sounds good - I just had my pencils out last night and put them back on the shelf - so better get them out again :) .
Hard to think of a new way to use them, though, mine are just standard watercolour...
Thanks, Julia.

I bought 48 Prisma pencils a while back but they still haven't been sharpened! Maybe I should get after it!

Great challenge Julia! I recently uploaded a card in my gallery that uses colored pencils for the Black Magic Technique. I'll have to make another one for this challenge.

The tutorial is on StampOwl's blog here : Black Magic Technique

Man, that Judy's fast! She even beat Julia! Great challenge - sometimes we move on to different mediums and forget the old. Good push in the right direction, Julia!

blessingsX3 08-28-2008 06:28 AM

wonderful challenge as I frequently use my pencils. Too bad I did not know the other day this was the challenge as I uploaded one on Tuesday. Here is one for today though- simple layout on this one. Hope to be back with more later.

This sounds like fun. I love coloring! I hope I'm able to participate later today after I figure out what Gamsol is because it sure does seem to be popular! Have a great day everybody.

artystamper 08-28-2008 06:32 AM

Great challenge, Julia! I will try to post AFTER you next week.....:confused: :confused: :)

Cook22 08-28-2008 06:57 AM

Well, it's a bit lateral but I did use my coloured pencils :-).
En route to making my Sharply Dressed Peacock , I discovered that I can blend my regular, non watercolour, colouring pencils with mineral spirits; but since I've never tried before, my first attempt is not worth showing, a couple of smudges in the wrong places. But it's new to me that I could use those pencils.

Stamps'nCoffee 08-28-2008 07:05 AM

Julia! I've been wanting to pull out my Prisma's for a while now...thanks for the push...it's like you know.....
