Ever had a feeling that you rather craft than be on your phone? Lol, I’m pretty sure not everyone will have that feeling but I know some people do because I am one of those people. There have been so many moments when I said to myself, I wish I was at home crafting. I decided to make a coloring kit because I just started to learn how to color with Copic markers. Making an on-the-go coloring kit, helped me craft wherever I went.
On-the-Go Coloring Kit:
- A bag to hold everything in
- Coloring Surface
- Copic Sketcher Markers
- A Pen(s) to write with
- 4.25”x5.5” cardstock with stamped images on it
I went through a few bags and did a little research to see which bag would work for me. I decided on the thirty-one and gifts travel bag. It was small enough to take around with me and big enough to hold all my stuff. The bonus was being able to personalize the bag.
You can use just about any hard surface to color on. Right now I am using a Gemini Junior clear cutting plate. It’s the right size and fits perfectly in the bag. I will start to venture out for another option but this one works for me.
I have about 65 Copic Sketcher markers in my travel bag. There is still room for me to add more when I decide I need to add to my collection.
A pen is useful to write down color combinations next to the images. I am not one to remember color combinations, so I have to write them down. Another pen I carry is a Copic Multiliner pen, which is a water and copic proof, pigment ink pen. I use this pen to add any extra details to the images I color with Copic markers.
Cutting an 8.5”x11” copic friendly cardstock in quarters just makes it easier to travel with. I use a stamping platform to stamp my clear stamps onto the paper. Use any stamps, wood (mounted or un-mounted) and/or clear stamps, that you already have.
I love my on-the-go coloring kit because it allows me to craft on-the-go and I am able to practice my coloring techniques. I would love to see your on-the-go coloring kit or your craft kit you take to go, post a photo of your kit on my facebook page.
