Day 19 - Coloured Pencils

The smell of coloured pencils takes me immediately back to my childhood and the years spent in the classroom sharpening, colouring and drawing with that wonderful collection of beautiful pencils.  I used to love the first day of school when all the pencils were still the same height and sharpened to a nice point.  By the end of the school year, certain colours were always little more than a nub... in my case, the black pencil... while some of them were almost as long as when you first started.
 

YOUR TURN: Time to connect with your inner child... stamp an image and colour it with pencils.

Hehe... You wanna know a secret..? I never used to do any colouring in as a child! It simply didn't interest me. In actual fact, I've only been doing the whole colouring thing since August of this year! And having loads of fun with it, I might add!
Love your card, by the way, great colours. There's something extra lovely about coloured pencils on kraft! x

what a gorgeous stamp and love the way you colored it. I love to color and always have. I too loved as a child when we got to pick out my new school supplies. Loved a clean notebook and fresh pencils.

I love using coloured pencils - my Prismacolors are my go-to colouring medium. I haven't been colouring on kraft though - you've given me an idea - thank you!

I love to use coloured pencils too, is easy and not messy, I always liked to look at all the different colours and try to mix them. Water colored pencil is also nice as they had a special effect on your colouring when mixed with a little water.

I adore my Prisma pencils that I got for Christmas last year. It's been a steep learning curve though I can tell you! I used to chew the ends off my pencils when I was a kid, so mine would get noticeably shorter from both ends!!

So sweet, and nothing brings one back in time, than placing a coloured pencil in our hand, and starting to colour .....so relaxing....thanks for the memory!

I'm so glad to see colored pencils used on cards. I think they have been somewhat forgotten in the market with all the alcohol markers out there. What a lot of people don't know is that they can be blended using a blending tool. I love the way they look on craft paper! Simple and beautiful!
