Now that the 30 day coloring challenge has come to an end, I thought I’d pop in to share a collage of the rest of my images from the second half of the challenge (you can see the first 16 images here), and a few of my favorites from the month.
I started this challenge (I think this is the third one that I have actively participated in) with the goal of coloring something on Every. Single. Day. of the challenge – something I wasn’t able to do in the last few challenges. I did it! And I have to pat myself on the back for keeping up!
There were several days when it seemed like life was too much in the way, but on those days I would do as little or as much as I could and tried not to get too hyper about it. Some days, when time allowed, I’d start one or two projects which would allow me to finish up the second one on another day when I felt like I had less time to color.
This time around, I used copics, watercolors (my new favorites) and inks (oh, my!) and it felt good to practice a lot of different techniques. I even got myself back into some drawing of my own, which felt really good. It’s been a long time since I drew with intention – usually I’m just doodling.
I truly believe that having a creative outlet keeps me sane and calm – especially on days when I feel anything but.
I also really enjoyed sharing my images on Instagram and receiving lots of nice feedback from other card makers. I feel like these coloring challenges do a lot to bring card makers together and allow us to share inspiration with each other.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to the next challenge!
Have a great weekend!
