See the time-lapse video for this coloring book gift box and compare the different techniques for Distress Crayons, Gelatos, and water-soluble colored pencils.
Color each box on the coloring page from The Coloring Studio Summer 2016 (page 33). For this project, use a combination of Gelatos, Distress Crayons, and water-soluble colored pencils. Pick up a bit of pigment with a water brush to use them as watercolors, or scribble directly onto the page and blend with a water brush or blending tool. Experiment with different techniques to create fun and interesting combinations.
Cut the white margins away from the squares, then trim along the squares’ lines to form a box. Fold along all lines and attach with gel medium.
Fill with candies or other treats and tie with a bow.
