A colored pencil tutorial so easy a 7-year-old can do it!

It’s true, I filmed this video yesterday and my daughter saw it when she came home from school and had to try it! I think one of the most fun techniques you can try with colored pencils is to use them on colored cardstock and patternedĀ paper. Today I’ll show you how to color thickly and blend your colors so they pop out from the background.

This video is a long one (14 minutes) but there are extra tips and tricks so I hope you like it:

I can not tell you how happy I am with this grossly expensive stamp set I bought last month (Stampin’ Up’s Occasion Alphabet, $31.95 on cling foam) I am using it all the time, I love the quirky, yet useful, sentiments and how it fits perfectly in the oval frame stamp I’ve had for years!

So, remember at the beginning of the post when I told you that my 7-year-old tried this technique? Well, take a look at her beautiful coloring job:

What are you waiting for? You can do this! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
