Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and time with family. I completed the two page layout in Secret Garden this morning. For the most part, I am really pleased at how it turned out. There are some color combinations that I and uncertain about but the overall look is pretty.
I used several different brands of colored pencils, Staedtler fine tip multiliner pens, and pastels. There are quite a few color combinations that I gave a try that I didn’t think would work but turns out they did.
I have listed all the pencils that I used. If you don’t have a specific brand, use a color that matches from the pencils that you may already have.
I also used a PrismaColor Blender pencil and a Caran D’Ache blender pencil. I may switch the PrismaColor blender for a Derwent since some times the blender didn’t work correctly.
