The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 25–28

Although the challenge officially finishes on the 28th, some people are continuing and doing the last two days. I did consider doing that but — looks around — my priority right now is to tidy up my craft room. In theory, a month of mostly Copic colouring shouldn't create much of a mess but... somehow...… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 25–28

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 21–24

The twelfth thirty-day colouring challenge is actually a twenty-eight-day colouring challenge to avoid overrunning the end of February. And that means that the last couple of round-up posts will be four days each... I've just worked on a couple of images this time: I paused on the first one because I couldn't decide what colour… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 21–24

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 16–20

Yes! I remembered! I'm actually posting this on day 20, not a day or three later! And yes, I did add it to my to-do list, though I only just remembered to check it in time 🙂 More Copic colouring, but I am doing more refining of my Copic images now. I love colouring with… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 16–20

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 11–15

I really need to set myself a reminder to do these posts on time. I'm blaming not being able to shake the last of this cold combined with recovering from spending a lot of Wednesday at the dentist (nothing serious, it just took a while and was tiring on top of the tail end of… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 11–15

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

I'm always surprised when I don't miss a day colouring something during the challenge. I am terrible at actually getting around to most things I say I'm going to do — in fact, saying I'm going to do something is a pretty good way to ensure that it doesn't get done. Take this blog post… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 1–5

I love colouring, but sometimes other things take priority. Sometimes it's other arty things, which is good, but sometimes it's just day-to-day stuff combined with my ability to procrastinate at championship level. The perfect antidote for the latter is the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge: just that extra bit of motivation needed to get me… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 1–5

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #12

Just in time to give my motivation a much-needed kick, along comes the twelfth Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Any thoughts about maybe slacking off a little this time around were firmly dismissed when I was asked to help out as one of Kathy Racoosin's team of goodwill ambassadors! I've taken part in every… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #12

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 26–30

And so we reach the end of another Daily Marker colouring challenge. Thirty days always feels like a long time at the start and before you know it, you're colouring something for the last day. I started this last few days by adding some contrast and pencil detail to the bunny I'd finished in a… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 26–30

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 16-20

Where does the time go? We're already two-thirds of the way through the thirty-day challenge, which also means, of course, that we're two-thirds of the way through November and Christmas is rapidly approaching. I suspect that I don't need to make any more Christmas cards (though I did do one for a bit of variety today),… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 16-20

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 11-15

Halfway through the thirty-day challenge and I haven't missed a day's colouring yet (she says, tempting fate).   I normally seem to end up doing it at the end of the afternoon after a day of procrastination and avoiding doing the stupid number of things on my to-do list, but I did make an effort… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 11-15

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 6-10

Another five days and more progress on getting the Christmas cards done. If I'm not careful I'll actually start feeling optimistic about finishing them! Of course, that now means that I have a backlog of cards that need photographing and writing up for the blog. I've gone from having nothing scheduled and just one thing… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 6-10

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 1–5

Well, five days in and I haven't given up yet 🙂 And I've completed one card and done the colouring for another so that's definite progress on the Christmas card list. I say that like I actually have a final finished list of cards I have to make, whereas, in practice, I actually have a… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 1–5

rambling on

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #11

Focusing on the blog and being generally unmotivated to do much in the way of actual creating (plenty of ideas, just really hard to get started on any of them) has meant that I have been mostly absent from Instagram recently. I have every intention of at least looking through and liking everyone else's work,… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #11

And that's the last day of the colouring challenge completed. Thirty days and I coloured something on every one - my stack of printed digi stamps is much smaller now, though of course my stack of coloured images is substantially larger 🙂 https://www.instagram.com/p/Be-kZoDHa8x/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BfBF5MXHVcn/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BfDrnwuniG0/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BfG3Z1RH9Z_/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BfI5XJLHZCx/
