If you've been following along in the last couple of weeks, you'll know that I've been reacquainting myself with my coloured pencils... well, that's not entirely true... it's more a case of being distracted by them while trying to clean up!
But I have evidence to show that I'm not the only one who has been playing with pencils, take a look at what Petra's up to. She's enjoying the last warm days of summer out on the patio with some images and her coloured pencils.

Meanwhile, I've been experimenting with one of the "metallic" colours in my collection to see how it looks on paper. Although it's not overly shiny, it does have a metallic look that can be accentuated with a variation in the amount of pressure you apply. The lighter you press on the pencil, the shinier the highlight becomes.
