It's August!!!

I started this month in a busy slate.  I've been trying to finish and reorganize our garage for the past week to finally put up my stained glass/ceramics studio.  With DH's help, it's finally finished and all I have to do is the finishing touches.  I'll take photos of my new studio's current state tomorrow.  The thought of decorating and organizing my studio is exciting!  And of course, I can't wait to make stained glass projects again.  It's been over a year since my last one. Anyway, I want to share with you the images that I have colored last month.  I have a lot of images received from swaps and RAKs and the weekly farmer's market/craft show gave me an opportunity color some of them.  As for coloring mediums, I am very comfortable using Copic Markers and Primsacolor Color Pencils.  I think the colors are more vibrant with Prismacolor, and it's easier to blend.  But you will need a medium to blend the colors.  In my case, I like to use Gamsol.  You will also need blending stumps, and a good sharpener.  As for Copics,  I love the convenience, and you don't need any other tools to use them.  Here are two Magnolia images I colored, each with Copics and Prismacolor:

You can see the other images I have colored here.

I still have yet to try coloring with Stampin Up Ink Pads and Blender Pens.  I have tried it once before with this card, and I would like to familiarize myself with this medium more.
Also, I'd like to share with you my creations for the month of July here.

By the way, have you guys tried uploading photos in Multiply lately?  I've just created 2 new albums, and I can't seem to change the photo captions since yesterday.  All I can do is rearrange the photos.  I can't even pick a cover photo for my album.  I hope Multiply fixes this problem soon.
