Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn, DMW DT Coordinator.
I thought I'd just drop in today and share an image that I have colored. Sometimes the most difficult thing about creating is choosing just the right colors. I use Copic Markers for all of my coloring projects. I love the way they blend so beautifully and the fact that you can keep adding color until it looks just right to you. I teach a coloring class at my local scrapbook store. The one thing I tell my ladies is to color, not exactly like me, but to get a result that is pleasing to their eye and to choose colors that they love. Some of us use lots of color and contrast, others not as much. It's really a personal choice. Anyway, enough of my ramblings, let's look at this adorable turtle (which has been shared by several of our DT members in earlier posts). I just love this little guy, but I pondered about color choices. I wanted him/her to be somewhat realistic but still cute so here's what I chose:
Turtle: G20, G24, G28 (body, head, legs), RV000, RV02 (cheeks and tongue),
YR 21, YR24, YR27 (shell)
Cattails: G02, G05, G07, YR 24, E15, E17
Water: B01, B02, B04
I used the smooth blending technique (or "on-paper" blending) for the entire project.

Thanks for stopping in today. Happy Coloring!
