Splish ~ Splash !

My newest art supply – Derwent Inktense Water Soluble Pencils!

And they are really, well, intense color.  Easy to use, and … fabulous!  

 What I really like best is their versatility, whether drawing with them, then adding water, or mixing the colors after drawing, or not!This is just the small set, which I bought at Michaels with my 40% coupon.  I’d like to see how they work on fabric, next.

Fabulously colorful ~ and I splashed the tip of the pencil with the tip of my watercolor brush, and I was just a splishin’ and a splashin’ and having a good ol’ time!

And I got to learn SO MUCH MORE about them from Joanne Sharpe’s blog, and Joanne Sharpe’s Online Class “ColorLove 101!”  (Sorry the link before didn’t work – it should go to her blog, “Whimspirations” now~)

I’ve seen them on  the ‘net ~ heard about them.  
Never used em… 

Til now!  Thanks Joanne, for showing the cool ways to use them!  It’s been a really amazing class, and I’m looking forward to catching up, and viewing the rest of the classes she has posted.  I’m okay with being behind… cuz it’s a ‘forever’ kind of class.  My favorite kind!  I believe you can still sign up for it…TAKE IT! 

Now I’m singing with my splishin’ and a splashin’ !!! {Sing the rest of the tune with me!!!}

Stay COOL! 
Hugs and more,
Leslie

  1. I have these Leslie and they are fabulous on fabric that has been brushed with textile medium! I do some doodle quilting, fill in the shape with a bit of textile medium and then draw with the inktense pencils over it. I'll post a pic on my blog tomorrow! I can't wait to see what else you do with them!

  2. I want to take an on line course again, but plan to wait until the fall. I have the same set of pencils which I use on fabric all the time. I love the intensity of the colors.

  3. So much fun! Love your blog and all the inspiration. I am a fellow quilter, too. Loving this Color 101 class!
