The more colors  the better, as far as I am concerned!

WOW!   I love the vibrant colors in this one.  What did you use to color it.   I don't have anything that gives such vibrant colors and I'm jealous!

This is so pretty!

You are also really making it hard for me not to buy that book!

Edit to add:  hahahaha  I went to put that book on my wishlist and realized I have it already.   Have to dig through my pile of books and do something from it next round of pictures!

Thanks!  I used Prismacolor Premier markers and Staedtler triplus fineliner markers.  I love coloring with vivid markers and using a lot of colors in one picture. Am still working on my picture from the Creative Cats book...almost done. It's VERY colorful!  I have one Copic Sketch marker..."Lipstick Red", and I really love using it. When I can afford them, I'm going to buy a small set of them because the one I have is great.  :my_shy:

I love all the bright colours.

I'm going to start playing with the Creative Cats book when my coloured pencils come in on Monday. I took one look at it and went NOPE, not with crayons. Can't wait to start it.

Definitely agree with you that crayons would not be the medium of choice for the cat book for the most part.  I think the designs are somewhat intricate, but I am a beginner.  In the cat picture I'm about to finish, there are some very small areas to color so a steady hand and finer point are helpful!  I've got a lot to learn, but am having fun!   :my_shy:

I ordered a few of the prismacolor and copic markers based on the recommendation of the color book author I like.   They won't be here until the 19th though, as I got them through blick.com.   I also ordered a few "artist grade" single color pencils to see if I can really tell a difference between "artist grade" and "student grade."

      A homeschooling, mommy blogger with 11 children who converted from evangelicalism to one of the above latin mass only, skirts only, mothers stay trad catholic groups (I forget which one) is Celeste of Joyouslessons.

       

      I read 'joyous lessons' as 'joylessness' first.

      I’m always fascinated when someone who was raised not religious & becomes extremely religious. I know 2 people who were raised not very religious Jewish & became very religious.

      I was raised atheist and became very religious in my teens. I was a deep thinking philosophical kid with big emotions, cracking under the pressure of adolescence in an extremely academic environment; Christianity offered me something to help answer the 'why' of it all (although even then, I always believed in the scientific account of the 'how'). I am also - although I didn't understand or have the label for it then - asexual, and the whole notion of no-sex-before-marriage was oddly reassuring to me, like a 'safe' way to date and fall in love with church boys who weren't supposed to want to touch me sexually (spoiler alert: they still did). While I was at university I worked for a Christian organisation and led the youth group at my church, then I got married and moved to a country town where I knew nobody, and the church community was my first 'in' into the community. I was a stay-at-home mother who spent my days going to church playgroup or hosting bible study with other stay-at-home mothers. Regardless of what's happening inside or what your private prayer life is like, when your social group is all religious it helps keep you religious. It's only in the past few years, with my kids all at school, my divorce finalised, working in secular arts organisations, plus time on more forums like this, that I've become a much more liberal Christian who doesn't let it dictate my entire life.

      Looks like that's the Justice Dept response to the Duggar appeal not the Supreme Court final.  Reddit was a bit ahead of themselves.

      Yeah, the conclusion states that writ SHOULD BE denied. This is the Fed's response to The Felons plea. Remember, they were granted an extension until 5/24, so this makes sense.

      And yet Amy gives no fucks. 

      I think that’s pretty standard for the vast majority of people who make 7 figures. Most people don’t make that kind of money without stepping on some necks to get there.
