Welcome to my recap of The Daily Marker 30 day Coloring Challenge for Week 4 (with a few extra days)! If you missed the recap for Week 1, you can view it HERE, Week 2 HERE, and Week 3 HERE. We did it! A huge congratulations to Kathy Racoosin for another successful coloring challenge!
What a fun month it has been! I’m so glad I was able to commit to a month of coloring (but also relieved at the same time!). I know I wasn’t obligated to color everyday, but I was committed! Let’s recap the last 9 days of coloring for me!
Day 22: My Favorite Things – Bitty Bears
I love these little bears! There are lots of images there to color so I picked out my favorites.
I also made a quick card using the MFT Horizontal Collage Coverup die.
Day 23: Polychromos Hex Chart
Sandy Allnock makes wonderful hex charts where she puts colors together for you so you can easily identify colors in your stash. I got the hex chart as a gift from my friend Rubeena. She’s a coloring challenge ambassador for Kathy Racoosin – helping to spread love and encouragement during the challenge. Thanks Rubeena – you are so kind and thoughtful! ❤
Before Rubeena surprised me with the hex chart, I had already printed off something I found online – so I colored both at the same time :).
Day 24: Pretty Pink Posh – Flourishing Fuchsias
I like to color flowers true to their colors as much as possible and this was a difficult one! When I googled them, I noticed how dark the petals were…but they were also very vibrant. I hope I did these flowers justice with the colors I used!
I also made a card. If you would like to see the post I did for that on Sunday, please click HERE.
Day 25: Pretty Pink Posh – Darling Dragonflies
After coloring with copic markers, I went over the images with prismacolor colored pencils to add more details and shading on the images. I think I need to work on trying to make images more whimsical and trying less to make things look real – but it feels hard for me when it’s easy for others!
Prismacolor Colored Pencils used: 929 pink, 945 brown, 905 aqua, 909 green.
I also made a card. If you would like to see the post I did for that on Monday, please click HERE.
Day 26: Studio Katia – Blooming Bunch
This bunch of peonies is so pretty! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use multiple colors and if so – which two do I make the same color? So hard to decide! In the end, I ended up using just one color. There are many petals on this bunch and I wanted to practice giving the petals more depth. Next time, I’ll use a darker, more vibrant darkest shade and hopefully, it will give it even more depth.
Day 27: Lawn Fawn – Ahoy, Matey!
I loved these little images so much – I decided to make a Reveal Wheel card. If you’d like to see that post, please click HERE.
If you’d like to see the reveal wheel card I made using these colored images, please see my post on Wednesday HERE.
Day 28: Lil’ Inker Designs – Fancy Feathers
I did some watercolor today using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I colored the black-stamped images first and questioned whether I liked them – so I colored some more using gold-embossed images.
Day 29: Lil’ Inker Designs – Wreath of Roses
I think I love this stamp set – not only is this wreath beautiful…but the sentiments are great! Saving it for a card I’ll be making for Lil’ Inker Designs in July. Stay tuned!
Day 30: Rosa Rugosa
I won a watercolouring book and saved it for a quick coloring project in case in ran out of things to color. I have plenty to color – but I felt that I wanted to do something on a larger scale instead of the tiny images I have been coloring the past few weeks.
I decided to color with distress inks. I felt like a complete amateur when I painted this. Of course, I’m no expert, but I’m also my worst enemy when it comes to my work. My painting can definitely use some work and I need to play with these inks more for watercoloring.
I may have used too much water? (palm in face).
Thank you SO much for following along with me this month. It truly has been a WILD month! Between the Leading Lady series for Winnie & Walter and the Kathy Racoosin coloring challenge, I thought I might have committed more that I could handle. But we made it! If I could survive June – I could survive anything (craft-wise)!
Until next time,
