Crafty’s adventures in colourland

My crafty new year’s resolutions are many, but include making better use of my collection of stamps. I realise I am months late, but I was inspired by the bloggers showing their 30 days of colouring back in November 2016. Even after work, I have time to colour a little image. 

His Lordship bought me a gorgeous art set, which includes a lovely range of coloured pencils. This adds to my fairly small collection of Spectrum Noir pens and a set of their pencils. I tend to avoid colouring, so often don’t have the necessary shades and then I get frustrated when I can’t make my project look right.

One of my Christmas presents to myself was the Rare Earth Load and Fold, a nifty little gadget to help with precise positioning of stamps and to help get a nice, crisp image (including filling in any spots you missed). I have spent a happy hour prepping lots of images to colour, and have so far managed one image a day.

They may not be technically brilliant, or even good, but I am pleased with my efforts so far, and the biggest thing is that I am really enjoying the process and finding it very relaxing.
