I’m coming back one more time with Polka Dot Pals Fern. I had an extra copy and decided I would take a time-out working and just color. I took inspiration from the gals at the Sproatmeyer Coloring Toolbox Retreat on how to color some elements such as the doodles around the border, red hair, green eyes, etc. You can buy Polka Dot Pals Fern here exclusively on my website. She has certainly been a fun one to color for me. 😀
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend – I know I did. It was busy yet relaxing and wonderful company. 😀 I’m coming in late today with a collaborative project from the Sproatmeyer Coloring Toolbox Retreat using Polka Dot Pals Fern. This is such a fun keepsake from the event and very special to me. Thank you everyone that came!
I have several projects to show this week featuring the work we did at the Coloring Toolbox Retreat. This one is similar to yesterday’s where I showed how to change/add long hair – this one shows removing the baseball cap and just having short hair. This is Polka Dot Pals Colton and was the featured stamp at the last Coloring Toolbox Retreat. There are several examples how how he has been colored and the many different ways he, or she, will turn out to be. And the limit is as endless as your imagination.
Are you interested in learning more? Come join me at the next Coloring Toolbox Retreat. It’s like no other and there are two different dates open for next year. Check it out!
Registration is open for the next two Coloring Toolbox Retreats in 2023 – one is in May and the other in September. It’s a retreat like no other! Take this for example – this is Polka Dot Pals Colton like you’ve never seen him before. LOL
I demonstrated part of this at my Coloring Toolbox Retreat then decided to finish it up in my free time. She started out as Polka Dot Pals Colton and I changed the stamp to have long hair. You’ve seen something similar as I have colored this stamp as Freida Kahlo and Bob Ross but I have two more that I’ll be posting this year too.
RU Magnificent? Oh wait, I made a mistake… let me correct that. Got it! UR Magnificent!! Amazing how just transposing two letters completely changes the context – good thing it was an easy mistake to fix. LOL This is Polka Dot Pals Colton and instead of coloring his baseball cap, I decided I was going to color an Afro and convert him into Bob Ross. This was such a fun project and just as fun as when I colored Frida Kahlo.
This was one of the projects we talked about and worked on during the Sproatmeyer Coloring Toolbox Retreat. Everyone created their own unique hair style then we colored the rest of the image together. Thinking outside of the box is one of those things I like to challenge you to do and you’ll learn so much from it. It’s a hate-love thing… first you’ll hate it but by time you finish your project you end up loving it! Check out the Coloring Toolbox Retreat dates for next year and come join me.
Polka Dot Pals Fern is now available to order! Welcome my friends! With this version of Polka Dot Pals Fern I went with a kindergarten-school-teacher theme. I figured that would be one place that kids might be wearing masks and playing with animals. I think it turned out adorable! I used two other Polka Dot Pals sets to complete this theme which are listed below.
