Hello Rose

Unlike last month’s PAF (which was the first one, by the way), we have TWO images for you to color. There’s a beautiful single, and a trio arrangement. You’re going to love all the ways the Designer’s used these images!

Of course, if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on these lovely coloring sets, sign up for the monthly subscription!

Simple Shading

Sometimes, an image doesn’t need color to make a statement. I loved the beauty of this single bloom arrangement and didn’t want to distract from the thoughtfulness of the design. So, I stamped it in Obsidian Black and took to my graphite pencils to add some simple shading to make the image pop.

On the flip side

If super simple isn’t your thing, You could whip out the new Artist Watercolor 24 pan set and spend a while getting all the detail just right like I did for my second design.
