7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge Preview


Hi everyone!

My second post today.... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


I'm sure most of you heard about Kathy's Racoosin 30 day coloring challenge. If not, here is a brief introduction.

Kathy of The Daily Marker started super fun challenge 30 Day Coloring Challenge in March 2015 and organizes it couple of times a year. On March 1st 2017, a 7th coloring challenge started. The goal of the challenge is to color something daily even if it's a few minutes. For more information, jump over to Kathy's blog. :o)

I've participated in each challenge since it started. I colored when I had time, sometimes for hours and sometimes just a couple minutes. Last challenge, the 6th, I managed to color all 30 days. :o) You can find my 6th 30 Day Coloring Challenge daily preview here. :o)

Today I want to share with you what I've colored during the 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I managed to color every day. There were days I colored only couple of minutes and days I colored for hours. Mostly I colored in evenings and at nights, after I finished my daily obligations. I mostly colored with Distress Inks in watercolor technique, my favorite coloring medium and favorite coloring technique. :o)

When the challenge started, I shared my daily coloring in Facebook Group, but after 5 days I stopped. With my own challenge going on at the same time, some DT requirements, job and daily obligations, it was just too much for me, so I'm bringing a daily preview today. :o)

Most of my coloring samples are finished cards/projects and already shared here on my blog as the challenge was going on. Below each photo I added link to a published card/project, if it's already published. For those unfinished and unpublished, I'll update this post and add links after I publish cards/projects. :o)

I didn't color all hand lettered samples form my challenge during Kathy's challenge as I thought I will. I want to try some new techniques. Before I experiment on my hand lettered samples, I want to practice a bit. :o)

Here is a day by day preview. :o)
