wk 21 U = Utilise, Colouring Craft Challenge sponsored by Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour Pencils

Welcome back to a new challenge...

Our lovely challenge is here to help inspire you to try out Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils - if you've never tried these amazingly lush pencils then check out all the links at the top of the page to find out more. They are top quality pencils which need minimum blending - if you're a Polychomo/Prisma fan you really need to check them out because we have all switched from those brands because we find Lyra's much faster to work with, easier to blend and superb colours and lightfastness that is superior to most of the others on the market - and they're an amazing price too!

Our challenge today is

U = UTILISE
Use something in a different way than intended = this could be something upcycled, it could be an embellishment made into something else, gems used as buttons or eyes etc, you get the idea....
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE OUR PRODUCTS TO ENTER

Lou: I have used Daisy's Dream Bubble to create a mixed media postcard. Daisy has been coloured with my Lyra pencils and so has the majority of the background. Now that's where things went wrong as I was too heavy handed in some places ... so out came the rubber! After a little inner panic, I grabbed some embossing powder and acrylic paint to create my postcard ...

Colours used:
Skin: Gold Ochre, Venetian Red, Rose Carmine & white
Hair: Dark Sepia, Van Dyck Brown, Black and Raw Umber
Dress and balloon: Pompeian Red, Dark Carmine
Sky: True Blue, Prussian Blue and Light Cobalt


As my unintended items in my project, I stuck a heart sequin stuck to the end of a pencil and then dipped in the white paint ... !


Jane – As my gorgeous image is called DAISY’S DREAM BUBBLE I ‘utilised’ some bubble wrap to make a ‘stamp’ and created my background paper with it. You may just be able to see it behind all the other layers....if you look hard! J

Colours used:
Skin: 91, 89, 31, 32
