Picture of the Day ~ 11.05.15

I thought I'd do something different today and just post a plain old fun crayon page.   My husband found me 5-6 different Disney books at the dollar store and grabbed them for me.   I hate kids coloring books these days because they are all "color and activity" books.   I just want plain old pictures to color, like when I was a kid.

I am a crayon snob so only have crayola brand, but I think all crayons are pretty similar most likely.

As a side note, I'm not sure why the loop part of the bow looks like it hasn't been colored in properly in the scan.  I doubled checked the original and it looks fine.

I love this! I've always thought coloring was a great pastime. May I ask your opinion on something? I bought each of my grand daughters (8 and 11 yrs. old) a Zen Tangle Coloring Book for Christmas. Do you think that regular Crayola colored pencils are okay? Or should I be buying them something special to use?

Thanks for your help.

I also don't care for the color/activity books they have these days. It seems harder to find regular pictures. Maybe I'll check the dollar store.

Yes regular colored pencils should be fine.  Some of the details can be a bit small on the zentangle books, so you need something that can have a pretty good point.  I think regular crayons would be tough to use, but crayola colored pencils should be just fine.

You need to get yourself a book and color with them!

They are hard to find now, but there are some out there.  The dollar store ones do have a few "activity" pages, but they are very few.  Probably less than 10 pages per book, unlike most of the ones you find now days where basically every other page is an activity page.

I'll see if I can find a link to the books I have so you know what to look for.

Awwww.....now you have gone and done it! I was so trying to keep away from the coloring, as I have way to many projects going at the same time. But since you suggested it, I probably will. But I think I will get gel-pens. I like the way they look. Hopefully, I can keep the girls grubby little hands off them.....lol. Not likely tho.
