All About Lawn Fawn: 30 Day Color Challenge

Hello My Inky Friends,

Sometimes I think it's tough just trying to find time to color never mind trying to blog about it. haha. So I must apologize for being so behind on my Daily Coloring Posts. Let's jump into this shall we?

I was lucky enough to get to go to my very first Scrapbook Expo back in September. It was the first time it ever was in my state so I was just super excited overall. While at the Show I was able to scoop up 2 great Lawn Fawn sets: Happy Harvest and Spooktacular. I didn't grab the coordinating dies but you can find them here and here respectively.

Day 4: I wanted to utilize the adorable scarecrow from the Happy Harvest set. He would fit in perfectly with my Day 1 background! So I colored him in; I left white space around the image because I would be using a circle die to cut him out. I actually had a boo-boo when coloring this image. I somehow managed to get ink on my little birdy which is also from the Happy Harvest set. I had to think quick, "What could I do to salvage the image?" Since, everything was already colored. Solution? Add white dots!! I love how it turned out!! It just takes the cuteness up to another level. I wasn't thinking of doing it but it definitely worked out for the best! Yes, happy accidents!

Adult Coloring for 30 Day Color Challenge

Hiya Inky Friends,

When I initially colored the following images I was fighting a serious cold... or at least that's what I think it was!! As a person who suffers from bad seasonal allergies, I'm not quite sure what I had! haha I had the sneez-ies (Is that even a word? It is today! haha), a low grade fever, and just an all around mess. Thank goodness for tissues, lotion and medication.

I know you didn't come here to hear about my awful cold but, I wanted to let you know that the Daily Marker 30 Day 3 Coloring Challenge isn't about how much talent, skill, products or time you have. It's just about making a commitment that you will color something everyday in October. That's all folks, no pressure! ;)

Since I was feeling under the weather for the next 2 days I thought my safest bet was to break out my Prismacolor Color Pencils and my new Adult Coloring book. I picked up my book up at my local Michaels Arts & Craft store. I grabbed "Enchanting Gardens" by Nikolett Corley. I choose this book because the designs are full pages and have a good mix of small detailed images as well as large open images too. An added bonus is that the pages come single sided; perforated so you can tear out the pages if you'd like.

I take on "The Daily Marker 30 Day" 3 Challenge

Hello my lovely stampers!!

Wow it's already October... I swear this year is just flying and flying by! Okay so I have only been on Instagram for a few short months (*gasps are heard*) Yes I know, I know, I was late getting to the program but I absolutely love! haha I thought ... Why would I need an IG account... my life isn't all that interesting never mind trying to showcase that via pictures! Ohhhh what lame excuse that was! How did I not see that this would be a great way to get more of my art out there! 

Any who.... sorry I digress. The reason why I mention this is because thanks to IG I am aware of the Kathy Racoosin's "The Daily Marker 30 Day: 3 Challenge" I must admit was quite intimidated at first, seeing all the wonderful artwork out there that I didn't feel that my stuff was worth it. But I've come to realize I don't give myself nearly enough credit. So, I've decided to dive into the 3rd 30 Day Color Challenge. You can learn more about it here. Kathy is so kind to provide, prompts if you will, to get her followers' creative juices flowing!
