Back to Coloring

I posted this in the coloring club (or whatever it's called).  But I'm conducting a bit of an experiment since I've managed to find my way to where I can post a blog entry.  (it doesn't appear as an option now under Create - well it does but it comes up blank) This is my most recent project.  I've got a couple of smudges that make me batty when I see them.  Otherwise, I've very happy with how this turned out.

Handmade wedding card

One of my closest friends is getting married this weekend. Since her initials will become PBJ, I made her this card. Now I have to figure out what to write inside. I feel so much pressure! There’s also a memorial they visit every time they are in town and is the location where her fiancé proposed. So nce it’s small I couldn’t find any souviners online as a gift, so I contacted park services. I spoke with someone there and got them a magnet and postcard, which I’m putting in the envalope a

A silly wedding card project advice

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve visited this blog. I need to do that more. One of my best friends is getting married next month, and I’m excited I get to be a bridesmaid. I realized when she gets married her initials will be PBJ (is it safe to give that information out? Lol). So I’m making her a wedding card with her and her fiancé as PB&J jars. I also lost the real card I got her. Whoops. Advice Time. I got these mason jar stickers in the scrapbook section at a craft st

Ship - from Lost Ocean

So here's a ship I did from Lost Ocean.  My usual Cra-Z Art colored pencils (72 count) (because twistables has a horrible selection of blue).  If you look REALLY closely you'll see that I'm not in the lines sometimes in the small places.  Which became more or less an artistic choice.   I posted the skull that was on the opposite page in the new coloring club.

Mystic Mandals 26 & 27

The first one was done with CraZ Art colored pencils.     The second was done with crayola twistables.    Personally, the first look like their on something.

secret garden flowers

And I just finished another since I'm still abiding my the no tv portion of my self imposed media deprivation madness.  Secret Garden coloring book.  I used Prismacolor scholars 60 count on this for the first time.  And note that I intentionally did not use green in this.  which is rare for me since green pops into everything.

Mystic Mandala 24

Started this last Friday at work.  And without the internet to surf during lunch finished it.   Using my trusty CraZ art 72 pack colored pencils.

Secret Garden Well

From The Secret Garden.  Using Frixion markers.  They're good for the little tight places, not good for the wider areas.  I finished this during my 3 day media deprivation exercise (on Sunday).  (ignore dirt please).  There are a couple of smudged spots (dumb hand)

Hello Cuba

I'm copping out of our endless cold winter and heading down to Cuba soon to try and warm up for a week. I thought I'd get myself in the mood by doing a picture from my Creative Haven Hello Cuba colouring book. The level of detail in the pictures in this book is pretty intimidating. This one took me forever to complete and I had major trouble trying to choose colours. The photo definitely doesn't do it justice as the page is really quite bright.

Here Comes The Sun

Because Canadian winters are long and leave me craving sunshine, I decided to colour my very own sun. Done with gel pens since I love the way they flow.

Mystic Mandala 20something

I've lost track of which one this is. My usual craz art colored pencils.  I did the middle in yellow.  what can in say, I'm missing the sun.  Then I felt purple and we'll you know me, purple means green.

Venting about...

Crayola colored pencils. I bought them a while ago, & they performed as expected (decent color coverage/color selection in the package); for the most part, that is, until I started to sharpen them. As I would sharpen them, chunks of the lead would fall out (of the freshly sharpened body of the pencil itself), which would lead to my usage of colorful metaphors & threats of throwing said pencils in the garbage. It's surprising to me; you'd think that Crayola (a major, national brand s

Swear word coloring

I hope this comes out alright (as this marks my first official post in this blog). This picture comes from an "adult"coloring book I got from Amazon, & it's called "Make Life Your Bitch" by John T. I used Sharpie fine point markers for this.

Quidditch cross stitch pillow - COMPLETE

I FINALLY learned to use a sewing machine and made the Quidditch cross stitch piece I made into a pillow. Well, I made two - one for a friend and one for me since I really liked the cross stitch design. Stages of almost finished: I learned to do a slip stitch (Or am learning as I see) to hide the stitches when closing the pillow. Completed pillow: I'm currently working on finishing the second one! The first one is all ready to be shipped to my friend!  The p

Christmas Ornaments

I follow Johanna Basford on Facebook, and she posted these free downloadables!  You can find them here https://www.johannabasford.com/blog/; I would love to see what other FJ colorists come up with! As always, I used my Prismacolor scholar pencils.  I also decided to cut out the ornaments and hang them on my wall as some decoration.  Ho ho ho

      Our granddaughter was born during the night! Thankfully, she is doing well and breathing on her own. It turns out her mom has pre-eclampsia after all, which is probably the reason she went into labor so early. Both mom and daughter will have to stay in hospital for a while yet, but all things considered, everything went better than expected.

      Just enjoying the smearing of Tom Mills. I had a run in with him when he spoke of monetizing the channel. I had watched a few of Andrea's videos - but mainly for Solomon (he is such a loving little guy!). I left a comment for Tom to consider Andrea's wish to not monetize the channel. He replied with a Bible verse (I don't remember which one it was). I replied back with the same verse, telling him to heed it. I then unsubscribed and never looked back at his or any of his minions replying to what I said. And so, I have lurked on this forum for a few months before finally joining.

      Narc Sister is blocking IG stories from family members and other close people that she knows or thinks is screenshotting them! Why do people keep screenshotting them? Because she shares sensitive information about family members that have TOLD HER NOT TO, as well as very uncomfortable pics of her children and HAS BEEN CALLED OUT ON IT! BUT!!! of course to the public she tells that there are people stalking her, reporting what she's doing so she's had to start blocking people, making it look like there's some vicious evil people behind all of it instead of her being a fucking whacko... Colour me surprised! Where's the fucking wine! I don't even like wine and I want some goddamn 3am wine right now cuz I sure as hell can't sleep!
