Kraft & Pencils

I have finally done a Kit & Clowder pencil class!!!

I purchased the classes in Feb 15 and have only just got around to trying out my many pencils, as with everything I have good intentions and neeeed things now, but rarely have the time to actually sit down and use them.

I wish I had done it sooner, anyway I had great fun colouring up a Winnie image provided for one of the classes by Polkadoodles, so it is only right that I share it for this weeks Polkadoodles Inky Pinky DT inspiration.

I actually used three different brands of pencil - Mainly Prismacolors, with a few Spectrum Noir and Lyras where I had gaps.

They are all quite different to work with, the Lyras were surprising creamy and bright as were the prismas, the Spectrum Noirs were better for holding their point for the finer details though.

Here is the finished project mounted with a few embellishments.

I really enjoyed working with my pencils and love the vibrancy you get colouring on Kraft, I will definitely use them more now and continue with my pencil classes to make the most of them.
