"Once upon a time.."

Today I have been coloring in my new favorite book, "Sagolikt" (fairy tale like) by Emelie Lidehäll Öberg.
It is full of fairy tale inspired pictures as well as pastry, flowers and sweets. :) This pic was colored and shaded with chameleon pens. And then I went over the whole pic with a white gel pen.


Here you can see how it looked before I started shading it. I always like to wait with shading, high lighting and special effects until the end.
Quite the difference, huh? :)

The bee hive

Another one from Hanna Karlzon'z postcard book "sommarnatt" :) I used chameleon pens for the intense colors (yellow, black, brown and orange). I love chameleon pens because they just make such a smooth and opaque finish. Then I used caran'dache pastel pencils on top for shading and highlighting. Talk about a match made in heaven!
A little white gel pen for some finishing touches and done :)

Dream time!

Finished a second page in Hanna Karlzons "Sommarnatt" postcard coloring book :)

I loved making this one. I wanted to make something that looked dreamy. I used promarker for the blu background and faber castell pitt brush for my main coloring and the some Carand'ache pastel pencils for my shading and highlighting.

Faux stained glass window



It's summertime! Witch means I don't have that much time to color :) We have so many other things to do since the weather is awesome. Sunny and warm:)

But this little butterfly I have spent the last few nights coloring. The picture comes from Hanna Karlzons postcard book, Sommarnatt (summer night).

I used chameleon pens, faber castell pitt brush pens and a white gel pen.
I absolutely love this color combo. Its so elegant somehow. You can see in the closeups how messy I am when I am coloring :) It doesn't have to be perfect to me I kind of like the end result anyway :)
