Loving my Prisma Pencils
Hi there crafter's
I was on facebook the other week and spotted
a post about Prisma colour pencils and was intrigued.
So I went over and watched the video tutorial and I have to say
how impressed I was. They looked so easy to use and the effect was really good.
The shading looked totally realistic and so I fancied having a go.
I tracked down on you tube more tutorials to make sure
I,d be able to do the same , then went over to Amazon to order some.
They arn,t cheap but I do now wish I had gone
for the larger set of over a 100 colours.
The set I opted for has 72 and although a really good selection
of colours, once you get the hang of it ,
you want more! trust me!! lol
So I am loving the effect they give and although I need
to do a lot of practicing I am already finding them so much
easier than water colouring or using my Promarker's.
To me the shading looks more natural.
I placed my order for the paper stumps , Sansador fluid and special
pencil sharpener along with the set of pencils.
As they were coming from America I had to wait a week!!
It seemed forever , especially as the other products came first
and the pencils a few days later!
The postman must have wondered what I was doing,
looking out for him! lol
But within a couple of hours I had completed these two images,
not too bad for my first attempts and for a change
I really enjoyed the colouring part of card making
which is normally my least favourite part!
The first attempt was using JAYNE NESTORENKO'S
Farm Boy and Rabbit.
My second attempt was the new Ballerina image from Jayne Nestorenko.
This design is from a new set of Apple of my Eye collections
and was first seen at the Summer Crafting Show at Doncaster
in July this year and Jayne will be selling it at Stoneleigh this weekend too.
I have done some more colouring since then but alas I
can,t share them with you because the are new and up coming designs.
They are gorgeous and as soon as I can share them with you I will .
Believe me it will be worth the wait .
Until next time
