Art Colouring Books

Tomorrow,  2 fab new Art Colouring Books from Katy Sue Designs with artwork by Sandra Rushton are being sold on Create and Craft at 12:00pm and again at 5:00pm.

I was lucky enough to be asked to colour some examples from one of the books, Le Shoe, and have a few examples to share now:

There is another book available - Nautical Adventures -  and both books are already available on Amazon:

Both books are spiral bound and printed on one side on lovely quality white paper. They have 70 pages of shaded and unshaded images which are fab to colour!

Art Colouring Books Facebook page is here.

Confetti and dreams

I'm still waiting for my pre-order of Johanna Basford's Lost Ocean to turn up and don't want to start a large colouring page so I've been colouring some more quick pages from the Paige Tate - Color Crush book.

This one was done with Crayola Supertips and a glitter gel pen from The Works.

Don't Forget to be Awesome

It's a little while since I blogged as I've been busy colouring but can't share until later next week.

Today, however, I picked up my Paige Tate - Color Crush book and coloured a page in there using Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils and a glitter gel pen from The Works:

Secret Garden - Leafy boat

After no colouring for a while  (due to a cold that got the better of me followed by Matt's birthday) I finally finished this page last night.

This leafy boat from Johanna Basford's Secret Garden was coloured using Caran D'ache Pablo pencils and I then used Inscribe pastels for the background:

Enchanted Forest - Skull

Here's today's offering - I actually started it a couple of weeks ago but then put it to one side so I could play with my new pencils.

Anyway, this is the skull from Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest book, coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils:

The Time Chamber - Leaving the Time Garden

I recently bought the lovely book by Daria Song (a Korean artist) called The Time Chamber and completed my first page in it today.

I've decided to try and work through the book in order and using the same pencils throughout - in this case it's my Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils.
