The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge-Part 2

Hello Friends! I'm just buzzin' by for a quick post to let you know that Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker blog is hosting another 30 Day coloring challenge, that will begin on June 1.

I participated in the first event a few months ago and I had a blast! The idea is to take time out every day for 30 days to color something. It can be anything you would like to color. You can practice Copic marker shading, you can watercolor, you can use Distress Markers, colored pencils... the choice is yours. Just sit down and take a little time to color. And it's JUST coloring. You don't have to make a card or a project with your colored piece unless you want to. I colored up many pieces that have not been made into cards. Like this one...

Sound like fun? To join in, make sure you're following The Daily Marker blog and KathyRac on Instagram. You will also want to subscribe to The Daily Marker YouTube channel, so you don't miss a thing Kathy has to share. And just like last time, there will be videos, discount codes and prizes! Plus, Kathy is very talented and she shares TONS of tips and techniques. And all of this is FREE people!

So, gather your supplies and get ready to have a great time. Don't want to buy new stamps? No worries! There are many wonderful sites online where you can pick up digi stamps for a small amount of money and some are even free. Here is a short list of a few of my favorite places to purchase digis:

Power Poppy - beautiful florals
MelJen's Designs - whimsical images all on one CD!
Tiddly Inks - Super cute people images and FREEBIES!
Mo's Digital Pencil - Adorable people images in real life situations
From the Heart Digital Stamps - Cute, funny and sweet stamps
Useless Trinkets - unique images, all FREE!
Sassy Cheryl's Stamps - cute and sassy childhood images
The Greeting Farm - cute kids
LaLa Land Crafts - cute kids

I know that there are more sites to find digital images, I've only listed a few. You could do a Google search and find many, many more.

And lastly, even if you don't want to color everyday, stop in from time to time and take a look at what others are sharing. You may get inspired to color after all.

I hope your week has been awesome! Thanks for stopping by today.
