Precious time!

Life is hectic this week and I seem to have so much to do and no spare time to do any of it. I am plodding my way through 5 assignments for my NVQ but taking a crafty break every now and then. I just can't help it!

I am working on a little project for Nikki at DewDrop Craftz and have all these ideas floating around. Don't forget you have 'til the end of the month for a chance to win a Flower Girl Stamp, pop along to the DewDrop Craftz blog to find out how!

Lou has just released another fabby Dottie and George download collection and I have an image all printed and cut out, sitting on my desk calling for me to colour it in! you can see a few examples of the Back 2 Front collection here.

Having a few images in need of colouring I was delving through my Prismas when I had this brainwave. I tend to decide on the image I want to use, choose my papers and then sort my prismacolors to match. I ofthen end up with these little scribbles of colour on scraps of card to find the best colour match. So today I took it one stage further.

I had already got myself a basic list of Prismacolor codes and names so I adapted it a little into an Excel spreadsheet and made myself up a colour chart. It won't be complete as there are plenty of colours I haven't got (YET) but I tried to make it as comprehensive as possible at the time I made the origianl list.

Hopefully it will save me a little bit of time trying to colour match.

Good idea, Adele. I've done one for my copics, but not for prismas. x

Thats a fab idea.. Its surprising the company don't send out colour swatches, you would think it would help their sales!
