The theme is right up my street
The designs are beautiful
I like the crisp white and fairly smooth paper of the pages which takes harder pencils beautifully.
The verdict is still out if I will add backgrounds to these. I was planning to, but liked them once finished and decided to wait-and-see.
I used a silver Sharpie for the dotted details on this one
I'm having the hardest time getting good colour on the picture of this page. So many details but I enjoyed saturating every area as much as I can with lots of delicious colour.
This was the first page I coloured, feeling my way around the paper with different pencils and some gel pens.
Another longer colour project - whimsical underwater fun!
This was a quickie using Derwent Metallic water soluble pencils for the base layer and dry pencil over top.
Soft pastel colours from the Noris Club pencils by Staedler (which I do not like, simply because I like my colours bolder, BUT they sure do beautiful colour blends!) I added glitter glue details to each jelly fish.
Delightful pages that took quite a while to colour, but I do like the double spreads.
Another Noris Club pastel one. In retrospect I think I would have liked a smaller colour palette for the seahorses...
This is one book I would really like to colour completely. And who knows, it may just happen!
