If you remember last month, I challenged myself not to purchase anything new and to use up some of my stash? I did very well with that challenge and am continuing to decrease some of the items I have been hoarding. Since I do enjoy challenging myself, one of the things I am doing this month is to change up the way I color things. I tend to always use the same medium to color a particular brand of stamp. For instance the S2G stamps I always uses Copics, same thing with Hannas and Rileys, MFTs and stamps from The Greeting Farm. I always use pencils on Lockhart stamps, House Mouse and most anything with flowers or scenery. The only company I mix pretty much equally is Clear Dollar Stamps, it depends on the image I am using but I do use both pencils and markers with their stamp sets. So for the past week or so, I have been coloring them different than I normally do. It has been an interesting experiment and definitely made me think in a different direction.
I loved reading everyone's comments on their creative processes. Especially the ones that mentioned finding new ideas in the clutter on their desks! I am so happy to know that I am not the only one that finds new ideas on my messy desk. I am actually working on mine right now since it has been overtake by half finished projects. I wish those messy little gremlins would stop messing up my work space when I go to bed! Enjoy your weekend.
