So you know how you go to color, because everyone has a 5 yr old in them that has to come out once in a while, and you need to use red, but you are not sure if the red you pick up is fire engine red or more plum red.
We all have that piece of paper we keep at the back of our journal, notebook, sketchpad, or what have you, that is all scribbles and lines of colors. The only problem is when you put the color down, you now dont remember which one was the right one.
In comes my clever little mind with a wonderful time saving trick.
I color a small rectangular shape with the marker or colored pencil, then i cut it out and tape it to the marker or colored pencil end. This way when I pick up a green, i know if it is more fern green or lime green even though the outer color looks exactly the same.
