A quick post today to share a little tool that saves me time every day. I use so many mediums to color and for each medium, when I get ready to use it, I scribble a sample so that I can see the actual color. Well, scribbling samples every time I sat down to color something seemed like such a waste of time. So I purchased an easel scrapbook that was top bound. At one setting, I scribbled samples of all my colors and slipped the sample sheet into a sleeve of my easel scrapbook.
This saves me time and I love it that it is propped right in front of me. I can match colors and see the difference in shades as well as match colors across mediums. Plus, I’ve been known to carry my swatch book to the store when I need to match something or so that I don’t duplicate colors that I purchase.
I’ve also scribbled samples of my often used Prismacolors and since they look different when they are blended with Gamsol or odorless mineral spirits, I went ahead and scribbled samples of the Gamsol blended results. Here is one of sample Prismacolor pages.
Have a blessed day!
