|This is after I sent home small buckets of crayons with the grandkids!|
I often pull out the crayons and coloring books when my grand daughters arrive and spend hours with them on the floor coloring in front of Disney movies! It is just really relaxing! Although I enjoy coloring in kids books once you start coloring in one of these adult coloring books you can get lost in the designs!
My good friend, Jamie Fingal, created her own coloring book!
It is filled with her wonderful, hand drawn, whimsical images that are on a sturdy paper that will handle some water! When they finally came in I tried to drive down to her studio to get the first copy! I was really excited to see all of her fun art as a collection to color!
The quality of paper in Jamie's coloring book allows me to use nice art supplies too! I decided to use one of my favorite pencils, Inktense from Derwent. They are water soluble and are bright and fun! I colored and then used my water brush to bring them to life! I did the fun camper page! So retro and fun. Next time you are feeling a bit in the creative dumps take some time to start at the beginning and remember how your love of art started!
Whats really fun is that Jamie is going to be giving away 2 coloring books in a random drawing from people who leave comments on our blogs during this blog hop! Make sure you go and check out everyones pages and leave a comment! Happy Hopping and Coloring!
