30 Day Coloring Challenge - Week 2 Round Up

Hi Everyone! How have those of you in the UK and Europe been enjoying the mini heatwave? Two days and it's over, but it was nice while it lasted :)

I've missed a few days since my last post in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I love colouring and this challenge, but after doing 4 out of the 5 there have been, I finally came to the conclusion I can't actually colour every day, and that's OK. It's about my time to myself, and if it becomes too pressured to colour, that makes it stressful, so a bit pointless!

Anyway, a quick round up of what I did manage to do:

Day 9: Quick colouring of this Create A Smile stamp. Just leaving white space gives it extra dimension

Day 10: I've taken up sewing these little zipper pouches for my Copics. I think I've started a new obsession! Also managed to colour in some caped cuties.

Day 12: Was inspired by a fellow Instagramer - Tina - to do some cloud stencilling. Kathy picked this for her Sunday picks - thank you!!

Day 13: I got some baby oil to try blending my coloured pencil. It worked really well!

Day 14: I turned those cloud backgrounds into teacher appreciation cards

Day 15: I made some bookmarks for my daughter's teachers too - I've been told they were really well received.

Day 16: I shared my sister's water colouring. I've been encouraging her to get back into it because she is really rather good.

Day 17: My Dad got in on the act with painting too. His style is very different to my sister - he likes bold and free.

So there you are. Just over another week of colouring passes by. If you're joining in, how are you getting on? Have you managed every day? Are you enjoying it and have you discovered anything new to try?

Below is a list of the stamps, paper and colouring media I used in my colouring. Please note I DO NOT USE affiliate links: 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and happy colouring :)
