Christmas came early this year, in the form of 120 of these fabulous little sticks!
I've been trying new techniques lately, and came across this one using OMS and a paper blending stump. This works best with Prismacolor pencils, and unfortunately I only had 3 of them! I tried it with all the other colored pencils in my stash, and just didn't get the results I liked. So I did a little browsing online and found a rockin deal on Amazon for only $88! A (not so) subtle hint to the Hubs, including a demonstration with Prismacolors and the "other" pencils, and he was convinced I needed an upgrade! I love that man!
(Also, my apologies to the UPS guy. I'm sure he's not used to having women come running and clapping every time he pulls into a driveway. You'd think he'd be used to it at my house, but he still looks a little shocked every time...)
