This book is different from other coloring books because it was designed so that the completed coloring pages can be turned into cards or scrapbook layouts or any number of creative projects.
Now about my process - I selected a page that had four similar panels...
and used my Copic markers, choosing four light-to-dark colors in the yellow to orange family group. I randomly added strokes of color to the petals trying not to over think the process or worry about perfection because, after all, it IS the background. I chose a complimentary color for the background and then added a bit of shadow around the flowers to make them pop off the page...
When I was finished coloring I cut out each piece and ran them through my Xyron Creative Station 5" Sticker Maker
and mounted them on card stock to create these four backgrounds - all from just one page!
And as I was sticking them down I realized that these backgrounds paired perfectly with my new STAMPlorations The Birds and The Blooms stamp so I stamped a few images and used my brand new Prismacolor Scholar pencil crayons to color them in. The soft leads and vibrant pigments in these pencils layer and blend colors so beautifully that I liked them even better than my Copic markers.
