Colouring Isn't Just For Kids

Sometimes I feel like creating or playing with markers and pencils, but I am zapped for ideas or only have a small amount of time. When this happens, I try to find easy ways to create.

Recently, I have been exploring Leonie Dawson's fabulous website and stumbled across her "Inspire My Spirit" coloring book. It is a free download and has proved to be more fun than I can say. It's kind of like a built-in art prompt.

I've been using metallic markers, glitter glue, and pastels today to make a wild and fun picture. I am often a conservative type gal so this has been a nice way to break out of that pattern.

Leonie has a bunch of other free downloads: books, videos, audios, calendars. Be sure to check them out while you're there.

Would you sit down to do some colouring? Or do you leave that to the kiddos?

Terry, I recently downloaded this same coloring book (Leonie is fab, isn't she?). Sadly, I haven't used it yet, but...I'm gonna do so soon as I am truly in need of some serious coloring! xo T.

Um, seriously, you need to come for a vacation at my house. You can color to your heart's content.
Em got a coloring book for Christmas that has see-through velum pages. So it's like stained glass when you color it. SO fun. We are a coloring crazy household. There's always some sort of crayon or pen out.

I love what you created Terry! I have to admit, when I was in the hospital, I had a coloring book ;o) I think if I wasn't painting, I would be coloring ;o) Big Hugs ;o)
