Sent with prayer

Using another of my Daily Coloring calendar images to send a little sunshine to a friend who isn't healing very well from surgery.

I colored this one with pencils, I found something that seems to make coloring with my pencils better, I am using a magazine underneath and it seems my coloring is much smoother, I am finally liking the results.


After cutting out the flowers I poked a whole on either side of the right stem and tied my tag with the jute.

Color for calm calendar image, colored w/pencils

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and say Hi,

Connie

That is sure to cheer up your friend who is needing some uplifting :-)

Using a magazine under to color huh... I must try that. I'm taking a "lost wax" silver class and they told me something interesting, you take a q-tip and lighter fluid and rub the fluid along the wax to smooth it. Got me to thinking about dragging some across some paper colored with colored pencils.... I dunno, always willing to try something new lol
big hugs,
Cheryl

Very pretty image! I like your shading in the coloring a lot. That is good to know a little cushion from a magazine works well with the pencil coloring.
