Drumming up Drawing

This month’s issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly is all about drawing, so when I saw this flashback to issue 6 of Craftzine I just had to link up. In fact, using this method is how I made the coloring pages in the zine!



I used watercolor pencils for the first time in about 10 years and had a bit of fun brushing the pigment around.

Here is what they write about the project:

“This week’s flashback feature comes from CRAFT Volume 06, the Play issue. “Color Your World” by Summer Block Kumar shows you how to make coloring books with your images in 7 easy steps. All you need is a computer (I know you have that one!), Adobe Photoshop software, digital photos of your choosing, a color printer, acid-free heavy-stock paper, a binding machine (or check out the plethora of binding DIYs online), and crayons or colored pencils. And besides the coolness factor, they make great souvenir gifts.”

Check it out in the digital edition, or get the back issue in the Maker’s Shed – it’s so worth it. Issue 6 was a really great issue. Heck, all the issues are really great issues – I fully endorse picking up the box set!

And of couse, make sure to check out this month’s issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly (on etsy) for more drawing related projects. And don’t forget back issues of clm are now available going back to Dec 2008 in the Kro Studio Shop!
