Colouring in

If you’re a grown-up, or at the very least pretending to be one, you’ll have come across the trend of colouring books not designed for children.  You may have even purchased one or two, or received them as gifts.  Have you done any colouring in them yet?  If you have, what did you like?  What did you not like?  I was lucky to be ahead of trend, as I love to colour in, and although I had forgotten for a few years, I’ve loved getting back into it.  Colouring in stamped images is one of my favourite things.  Here’s one I’ve been working on.  I’ve deliberately kept it simple, as I am one of those people that tend to be a little overboard, so it feels good to dial it back once in a while.  Kind of like looking at show homes, which are all glass, mirror and chrome, and the kind of thing you can’t have when you have little fingers around the place, or big fingers!

You might recognise this as one of the images I stamped on my previous post.  It’s from another Hobby Art set ( and I used Letraset (now Winsor & Newton) Pro-Markers in cinnamon, satin, and cool aqua, with the silvery parts done using a Wink Of Stella (available from a lot of places and craft shops, I purchased from Amazon) pen in clear. You can’t see it too clearly but it was used to highlight the waves and the bears eyes and nose.  I never feel something is finished without a little bit of glitter, mica, or shine.
