So this week I was determined to finish a little earlier as I get very stressed if I leave things until the last minute. This goes for pretty much every aspect of my life not just the summer of colour! I wasn't too sure what medium to use this time. There was no way I could do knitting or crochet as I have NONE of the colours needed...not even the white haha! At first I thought paint, i'd mix my own colours....honestly though I didn't feel I had the time this week. Then wax crayons came to mind but I couldn't find the right colours. This left me with pencils. I was quite happy to work with pencils but as I was looking for my pencil sharpener I came upon my sharpies.......SHARPIES!
I adore sharpies! They come in so may lovely colours and are so bright and just generally make me happy. So sharpies it is then.
Ta-Da.....looking at it now my coral is a bit orangey and my teal a bit greeny and the white is more than a splash.....ok ok I shall stop focussing on the negatives!! This bad boy comes from a really cool colouring book (yes I did say colouring book and yes I am 30!) I got from Barcelona. It's full of mandalas designed using the work of Gaudi. Now I LOVE Gaudi and I LOVE colouring, perfect match!
The book is cool because it has little snippets of information about lots of the buildings Gaudi designed. Thinking about it I should have taken a photo of what the Mandala looked like before I coloured it in! Ooopps!
I added some highlights and little bits here and there with my Gelly Roll pens. I've not really had a chance to use them before so this seemed like as good a time as any.
So there you have it! My week 2 colour of summer effort, I hope you like it and come back to see more :-)
