Earlier this year, I took an Introduction to Coloring Class taught by Peggy Jo Ackley of Pink Ink Stamp Company. I immediately knew Peggy was going to be a great teacher when I showed up at Scrappin' Goodtime and everything was ready for the class to begin. And, of course, I really liked how those colored pencils looked all divided up by color!
In this class, Peggy shared a step-by-step process for layering techniques with colored pencils. We began by adding the lightest colors, then layering additional colors to add depth and shadows. I especially like how she had examples of each step in the process for us to follow.
For each stamped image we colored, there were materials to create greeting cards.
I didn't finish my cards during the class, but after I returned home I put them together.
I enjoyed the class and really like the way the cards turned out. Since then, I've used this layering technique with many of my coloring projects!
