colouring challenge

The weekly Craft Barn challenge is a colouring challenge. We can use any type of pen or pencil, as I don't own any pens (yet) I used my inktense pencils.
I started by dry brushing green and pink on the page. 

Next I stamped flowers and leafs on some book text

and coloured these with the inktense pencils,

cut them out and glued them to the page.

I added a smaller flower stamp in between allover.
Wrote my quote The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every single day on a piece of tissuepaper and added that also to the page.

Thx for stopping by.


  1. Thank you for sharing your process. I just love Inktense pencils, and your use of them on book paper is an inspiration I will try.

    1. I also just love those inktense pencils, it is every time such a joy watching them transfer when you add water.

  2. Beautiful! I love book text backgrounds :D

  3. I have some pens but I find pencils way more efficient both financially and technically. More versatile all around, especially the water-soluble ones like the Inktense. Great page!

  4. Beautiful page, love those colours! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
