Sadly, like all good things, March Color Madness is coming to an end. However, we hope that you have had a great month full of color, inspiration, new techniques, and fun! Using different coloring mediums, (here's just a short list of a few we've featured), in different ways, is a great technique for getting out of a creativity rut.
- Soft Oil Pastels
- Water-Soluble Graphite Sticks
- Opal Magic Paints
- Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints
- Color Bloom Sprays
- Chalk Edgers
- Watercolor Confections
- Watercolor Pencils
We have a bunch of projects and videos to inspire you one last time for March Color Madness, so enjoy!!
"This is a page in my journal - my own brand of meditation. :) I created this page with the help of the Decadent Pies Watercolor Confections palette." ~ Melanie Van Houten

"My word for this year is 'Joy' and I wanted to create some sweet girls to sprinkle Joy and Magic. I used the Prima watercolor sets in Pastel Dreams and Decadent Pies. I love using these palettes together." ~ Mindy Lacefield
"Pastel Dreams has a light airy, dreamy quality and Decadent Pies gives you the deeper, earthy tones to capture dimension in the faces."
Jaya Raghuvanshi used Watercolor Confections and Christine Adolph's Watercolor Resist Pen to create this happy canvas! Art doesn't have to be complex to be beautiful, inspiring and colorful!

"A year ago, I used only sprays for backgrounds of my projects. Now I love to use Prima Watercolor Confections and Oil Pastels. There are many colors in one small package. It is wonderful! Also, I really like the combination of purple and turquoise colors. So I made two tags in these colors and once again enjoyed working with watercolors!" ~ Nastya Istorkina

Watch the video and follow along. I hope you are loving this month's Color Madness as much as me! Can't wait to see your creations! Hugs! :) " ~ Miranda Edney

"Hey, friends! What do you think of the sea or ocean? I've discovered I can't live without it for more than a few months, I am in love! When I am at the sea shore, the emotions overwhelm me! I just can't get enough of the breeze, colors, salty water and smell. I've tried to express this whirlwind of emotions in my latest project featuring Color Bloom sprays: Mixed-Media Canvas." ~ Elena Morgun
