Hello and thank you for coming by my blog. I have something different to share today.
I am going to be in the car quite a bit this week for the holiday- going to and fro. Plus, there may be some downtime between holiday gatherings, so I though I would stamp some images to color on the go. In all the years I have been stamping, I have never done this before!
(Click on photos to enlarge.)
I got these paper pads for Christmas last year and have not used them much. I have always liked Bristol paper for stamping and I know they are good for coloring that involves just a little water. The sketch pad is light weight paper we wouldn't usually use for stamping, but I recently discovered how fun it is to use colored pencils on that paper (it is slightly textured.)
(This is the Bristol pad.)
(The sketch has a spiral and is easier to flip through.)
I stamped a variety of images with archival ink - I know it will work with pencils and watercolor. Some pages I just stamped one image, but I try to stamp two per page. I usually do that when coloring so I can use one image for practice and color choices.
My Global Art Materials pencil case holds up to 120 pencils (3 per slot, mine is not full, I will say that the thicker pencils are harder to fit 3 in a slot). It holds all my pencils (all are by Derwent) - regular Coloursoft, watercolor, Inktense and a few Metallic watercolors. (I hope to get a gift card for Christmas so I can choose a few more colors of the Inktense and Coloursofts, since you can buy individual colors.)
I also am bringing along a few gel pens (white, black, glitter and gold), my waterbrushes (can't find the cap for one!) and my nifty pencil sharpener. That is a small and neat pile that will fit in my purse or a small tote.
Do you ever travel with your stamping and coloring supplies? I would love to hear what you bring and how you do it!
Thanks again for stopping in!
