Wednesday Some Odd Girl Coloring with Pencils and Gamsol

Happy Wednesday!

I love to color!  I think my obsession started as a little girl and I never gave it up.  When I first started to color again in my paper crafting I started out with pencils.  Then the craze of alcohol markers swept the coloring world and I have to admit I jumped on the band wagon.  Don't get me wrong- I love my Spectrum Noir markers BUT I still love my pencils and will NEVER give them up!!  You can achieve awesome shading with the pencils and quite frankly I think they are easier to use- just my humble opinion.

Some Odd Girl is having and entire week devoted on how to color your SOG images.  There are so many wonderful ways to color and you are going to want to check them all out HERE

So for my tutorial I am going to use Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  Here is the final image of Sneaky Boy Tobie!
Isn't he just the cutest?   I just adore him.  He reminds me of my Jack!  Evey part of this image has been colored with Pencils.  To see how just click on the video below.
I would love it if you stopped by the Some Odd Girl blog and left a little love over there.  I would appreciatte it TONS!  Thanks!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I am taking the day off tomorrow but I will be back on Friday with a new Moxxie card sketch and 2 inspiration cards.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Sweet stamp..love it! Great job on the coloring. I still have my pencils and Gamsol but haven't used them forever since discovering Copics..perhaps it's time to revist them.

What's the difference between Gamsol and mineral spirits? I can't believe that image is colored with pencils, looks amazing!

Thanks for the tutorial. I have a few sets of watercolour pencil crayons that I haven't used in a very long time. Seeing your video makes me think I should take them out and put them to good use. :)

I have always been curious about prisma colours and the gamsol.
The only time I have used pencil crayon is in school. Copics are my #1 choice, but I would like to try the pencils.
Cute image :)
