Millie Marotta Ibises

It's a while since I coloured a Millie Marotta drawing so last night I sat down and completed this one of ibises from Tropical Wonderland.

I used a mix of Spectrum Noir pencils and Prismacolor pencils with 3 Polychromos green pencils thrown in for good measure.

Pink and silver mandala

I haven't blogged for a while as we had a busy week last week with Jess attending Summer School at her primary school every morning, which she loved, and then we went out walking at the weekend. My MIL has been staying with us this week but between Jess and I we've managed to start her off colouring too!!

Here's a mandala from The Meditation Book:

For this one I used Crayola Supertips (during the past few weeks I've bought 3 sets of these - one each for myself, Jess and Matt), gel pens from The Works and a Faber Castell connector pen.

I finally managed to sit down and do some colouring without Jess and with my Prismacolor pencils. This was from the Meditation Colouring Book:

I used mainly Prismacolors with a glitter gel pen and a pink Sakura Moonlight pen.

Relax with Art - Issue 4 - Carousel Horse

Jess and I both have a copy of Relax with Art Issue 4 and she's said we're only allowed to colour in it when we're together. We sat down the other day and both coloured the carousel horse but I only used Jess's Tesco pencils:

Jess used Tesco pencils and some gel pens for hers:

I'm amazed she finished this as she usually gets bored with one picture and moves on to another one. This is the first she's actually completed!
