Altenew is collaborating with the amazing Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring. Kathy is celebrating her 16th 30 Day Coloring Challenge until 5/7/2020. Please encourage your followers/blog visitors to participate in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge by coloring something and share it on social media using the hashtag #TheDailyMarker30Day. We hope they find “Me Time” and enjoy the benefits that coloring will give.
I LOVE to color and Kathy Racoosin has been a huge influence for me. Her challenge #TheDailyMarker30Day is a fun way to get that 10 minutes of coloring a day in as well as supporting other colorists by LIKING/commenting/ Encouraging them as they share their colored projects on social media. I've participated in several years of the challenge and enjoyed being an Ambassador for Kathy and her 7th challenge. Coloring 10 minutes a day, has increased my skills and is a great stress reliever too!
Below you can see two projects I've been working on for today's post using the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set.
Flowing Drops Stencil. and finished with a strip of Golden Strokes Washi tape and Sequins - Antique Gold.
Demystifying Mixed Media at Altenew Academy When creative MOJO is low, the classes at the Academy are my first source of inspiration! I highly recommend looking into them :)
And now I am again reminded how blessed we are to have access to so many outline flower stamps at Altenew, because what I paint is no where near as realistic as what I was hopping for!
Good ol' splatters and color washes to make it look like I meant it to be that way :)))
Dancing Tulips among the Forget-Me-Nots
