Make iI Monday #30: Colored Pencils

Make It Monday logo
I decided to try the technique highlighted by Jennifer Ellefson for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday.  I've never blended my colored pencil creations with baby oil reminded me of using watercolor pencils.  Needless to say, I tried it, had fun, but I think next time, I'll try it using a paper stump like Jennifer.  I think that may give me the control I want, of the amount of oil absorbed, and transferred to the paper, as well allowing me to better define my blending.  I WILL be doing this again!
Live well,

  1. This is super cute. The paper stump does give you a lot of control. It's a worthy investment (and thankfully a small investment.)

  2. Very cute, great job!
