Lettuce Note

Hi! Yes. That’s lettuce. I basically squeezed the clorophyll from some leaves to stain some mixed media paper. I couldn’t forage for foliage outside today, but I had to try this technique (“duoprinting with chlorophyll”) shared by #understandblue. So, I had some spring mix lettuces. Wish I would have flipped horizontal the top leaf, but it was so very fun! Can’t wait to collect some local flora and do some more!! Thanks Lydia @ understandblue.blogspot.com for sharing & inspiring! #handmadecard #cooltechnique


Ta Ta For Now 30-Day Challenge

Day 30 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Ah. Day 30! Thanks @kathyrac for another lovely coloring challenge.

So awesome, you are, indeed! 🤗 #thedailymarker30day #bugaboostamps #watercolorcard #yayforcreativity #thankful


Ink Smooshed Tree

Day 28 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Today, my coloring was distress ink smooshing just the tree on distress watercolor paper. Did not do the background as I was short on time–it’s patterned paper. I find it inspiring, though. 😊 I’m not so much a glitter person, but enjoyed free-cutting a few snow drifts & topping them with distress glitter. Distressed edges of pattern paper layer. Will look forward to more time to color tomorrow. In the meantime, I appreciate today. Thanks for peeking! #thedailymarker30day


Sending Hugs

Day 27 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Our 30 days are flying by! I found it interesting that I also colored this image for the last coloring challenge (July) and without looking back first, I used the same color for the scarf. Green. 💚 Image & sentiment: From the Heart Stamps. Zig watercolor markers & Canson mixed media paper. Fun! Thanks for peeking! 🤗#thedailymarker30day


More Peace Love Joy, Please

Day 26 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Just enough time today to color these cute penguins from Bugaboo Stamps. It was part of a batch meant to go on Bristol Smooth, but ending up on Neenah Solar White 110lb. Both awesome papers, but a surprise when expecting water to move on it. In our dry climate, for sure, water pulls straight in. I found a light layer of black prismacolor followed by a bit of black Inktense & water for the penguins added a little interest. Happy Day! 💙 🐧💙#thedailymarker30day


Revisited Snowy, Starry Night

Day 25 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Prismacolors on kraft for a different look on the same digital image colored for Day 23. With all the choices of medium, there is something comforting about colored pencils. I also stepped outside my comfort zone to outline the images. Really fun! Hard to see sparkly stars amidst the snow. Thx for peeking! 💙 #thedailymarker30day 


Thanksgiving Moose

Day 24 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Happy Day! We celebrated Thanksgiving here today. Non-stop busy & almost didn’t take five to color. Here’s a quick moose colored with water & a few distress inks. Tee hee…not sure why, but I love moose! I’m saving a background for another day & that’s OK. Thanks & I wish you all awesomeness! #thedailymarker30day #bugaboostamps #thankfultocolor


Snowy, Starry Night

Day 23 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Hi! Although I did find time to color yesterday for Day 22, the outcome didn’t feel post-worthy. Not that it feels more so today, but I’m posting anyway. A little watercolor with Zig Clean Color Brush markers, flicks of white distress ink, and sweeps of Wink of Stella. I am grateful for this time! Thanks! #thedailymarker30day #watercoloredforfun #thankful


Snowy Friends

Day 21 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. A definite chill was in the air today, with quite a hailstorm in our town. ❄️ These little snowy friends are ready for something a little colder, however. I may never tire of this Art Impressions stamp set. So cute! Thanks for peeking! #thedailymarker30day #watercoloredforfun
