One of my favorite ways to add detail to a coloring page is to layer different media. For example, in this photo I'm adding details with a white gel pen on top of sections that I colored in with marker. I also colored the face of this Matryoshka doll by shading with colored pencils on top of a layer of markers. Markers make a great base layer and you can add colored pencils and gel pens over top to make the art really pop!

This Russian nesting doll is a page in my upcoming Folk Art Coloring Book, which will be available in a few weeks!

Over the weekend my husband and I filmed our first art time-lapse as I colored in this owl sugar skull from my Day of the Dead Coloring Book! We used three cameras (my Sony NEX-6, an iPad and an iPhone) and my husband did all the editing and post-proccessing. It was time-consuming but fun, so we hope to do more videos when our schedule permits! :) Hope you like it!

Happy Monday!

Here's a time-lapse of my husband and I putting together one of my sugar skull puzzles! We had no idea it would take so long but it was a fun challenge, and so cool to see it come together! https://vimeo.com/118364358

Here's one of my new favorite sugar skulls... a grinning skull wearing headphones, bursting with color and vitality! The title of this piece is "Tranquility Beats" and I created it using the Procreate iPad app and Photoshop (mostly Procreate, except for the background rays/colors which I did in Photoshop). This sugar skull will appear in my 2016 calendar - yay! :)
