Even so, I can still have fun, and one of my new favorite activities is to color in stamped images while David and I watch television. I'm trying to learn more about color--how the juxtaposition of colors changes how they look and how to mix different colors together in pleasing ways. I use watercolor paper because it’s much sturdier than regular paper, and I can really scrub away with my markers. (Mine are probably water-based, so they soak into the paper.) I can go over the dried colored areas with sparkly pens.
As you can see, the choice of colors can really change an image! If you want to try this, start by coloring in the image with the LIGHTEST colored pen you have. Then, work a darker color along the outside edge while you keep that LIGHT colored pen open in your hand. You’ll want to quickly go over the dark color with the LIGHT pen to blend. Have fun!
