Let’s Draw and Paint a Lady Slipper in Colored Pencil!

Hello friends! Wow, I could have used an extra 8 hours in this week! I was right out strait it seemed. I am looking forward to some relaxing this weekend (between scouts and softball that is!) If you have some downtime this weekend why not try something new? Like sketching and coloring with your colored pencils. This is a viewer request of how to paint a lady slipper in traditional colored pencils. I used Prismacolors but try whatever you have before buying new:)

I really like the way it turned out plus pink and green is one of my favorite color combos. Thanks so much for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. For some unknown reason to me, I can’t get your video to load. Your cards are beautiful and I just got new colored pencils. I need to learn how to use the metallic ones. Jan Caldwell

  5. I have a question not related to your post. (Sorry)

    I just bought a K-tel Knitter. Do you have a tutorial in how to use it? Or a site that could walk me thru it? The instructions are pretty blurry.

    Thanks.

  6. Beautiful Lindsay, especially when you are working upside down. Love the colouring with Prismacolours, I haven’t used mine in such a long time, but you’ve inspired me to get them out and use them. Thanks.

    • Thanks for replying! I read this through my android based tablet, so not sure I even use flash. It has only been a problem with this one and the one before. I miss your vids!

  8. that is simply beautiful. I don’t know if my regular colored pencils are prismacolor or not. I should look.

  9. Great video Lindsay. The Prisma pencils you used to color with are just regular colored pencils, not watercolor? Im confused, I thought you needed to use a blender pen, baby oil or forgot the other name of solution name to blend the color? I believe you said you used a piece of watercolor paper to color on, right? There are so many kinds of
    pencils its hard to keep straight what your using with what.

    • these are not watercolor, you can use baby oil if you want to blend them more (usually I do that on white paper but I like to use the pencils strait on colored paper because it dilutes the color a bit) One pencil, lots of techniques!

  10. First, you are an inspiration. I could not find you on facebook to make a comment. I struggled on how to attach die cut sentiments without ripping then. I had a great idea, after going to bed, and came up with a great idea. I can use my Mod Podge and brush the backside. I can lift the sentiment with tweezers without tearing. It works great.

    • great idea! I had a ZIG glue pen “two way glue” it was called that worked great for die cuts, it looks like a thick marker and it is light blue. You can use it as a permanent or temporary adhesive. You might look it up if you glue a lot of die cuts:)

  14. Hi Lindsay!
    I have to say, you are absolutely AMAZING!!! You make me want to clean out my basement to secure a better art area (and I hate the basement….yikes)! Anyway, I am watching all your earlier “ask a crafter” videos. Question: Is gesso really just flat latex paint? Really?? I just went into our garage and found a gallon can of Ben Moore white latex primer. I have just poured it into smaller containers for my uses to prime journal pages etc. Will this work? Suddenly, common sense tells me (after listening to you) that this is ok to use as a primer on whatever I need gesso for and I can stop buying commercial gesso at my art supply store.

  15. Hi Lindsay,
    correction! It is Benjamen Moore 100% acrylic white primer. Opps!
    thanks for your thoughts!

    • yes, use it, you are fine, acrylic is actually higher grade than latex. I bought a gallon of gesso at mardens on sale ($10 can you imagine!?!) and it is flat white paint, I could not tell the difference honestly. It will be just dandy on your pages my dear:)

  18. Great work once again Lindsay! Thanks for sharing all that stuff. You’re a great teacher to me! Thank you! I tried this project yesterday but I didn’t have prismacolor pencils. I said I’ll try with mine (Polychromos-Faber castell) but they weren’t so soft and they didn’t mix that well… the white was poor and didn’t saw. Is the prismacolor a softcolor like Coloursoft Pencils by Derwent?

  22. Is it possible to post a supply list for this project? Or to just have one emailed to me? I’d like to know specifically which pencil colors were used for this drawing. I really like it. I know you mention them throughout the video, but it’s hard to keep track without having to watch it several times. Thanks!
