Working with colored pencils is different than using markers because you can add subtle shading and variations. Just use a light touch, and add the color in layers. Also, a blender pencil can create seamless transitions between colors. And a sharp point is essential!

Hi Jennifer, thanks for being a follower to my blog, Tellen's Place; delighted to have you there! You know, I started using colored pencils and you're right about the ease to do shading. Then I went to Copics and though I love them, I tend to go back to my colored pencils because of the ease of use and no worry about using the right paper or the right ink. :) Great article. I am a Paper Craft mag user - thanks for reminding me to subscribe!
