Hi Crafty Friends,
If you haven’t heard, Kathy, From TheDailyMarker.com is starting a 30 day color challenge starting today though April 2nd. I read about her idea and thought this was a great opportunity to do something creative every day for 30 days. I get caught up in a lot of things between family, chores, business stuff, ect… That I forget to do something creative for myself. You can read more about her challenge and see how she is preparing for the 30 days HERE.
I have not only decided to play but to put my own little spin on it. For the next 30 days I plan on making 30 colored Project Life cards to use in my 2015 album. I think this will help me get more practice in with a variety of markers, pencils, and watercolors that I have been neglecting.
I was up late last night so I got an early start on today’s coloring. My newly turned 15-year-old had a sushi lunch for his birthday so I made a project life card that will be perfect for that day.
For this first card I used the Paper Smooches stamp set “Calorie Free” and my Copic markers. I even added a little wink of stella glitter to the ginger and used some glossy accents for the plastic grass. To finish it off I did some doodle lines around the card.
It’s simple and didn’t take me any time at all but it felt great to get into the creative mode.
Will you be joining me in taking Kathy’s 30 day color challenge? If so, please link me your projects in the comments this month, I would love to see what you will be creating!
