From The Desk Of

After watching Annika's coloring tutorial I decided to dig out my Prismacolor Pencils and give them another try. I learned two things while watching that I wanted to try out - first to use a paper with texture (a good tooth) and second I like how she started with a lighter color first.
The coloring actually worked out easier that I expected and the blending was smooth sailing! I didn't have to press as hard as before and no minerals were needed for blending. I had to color this one in less than 15 minutes but loved how easily it turned out.

The border idea is from Jen (Deconstructing Jen). Thanks! ;D
