Curious' Coloring


Curious

Recommended Posts

I started taking coloring lessons around November of last year.  I found a great group online and the lessons are reasonably priced.  I thought I would share a few of the pages I have done since then.

I have also discovered the wonderful world of digital stamps and am totally obsessed with them. I'm going to post each page in a separate post so I can talk about it a little bit without posts getting super long.

Edit:  I'm waiting so my posts don't all merge so come back in a few minutes if you are reading this right after I post it ;)

One of the reasons I decided to try the lessons is because human skin scared me.  I felt like I could never get it right and my people either looked like oompa loompas or zombies.  I mostly just avoided coloring people and it wasn't a huge problem until someone posted a page they did from a Molly Harrison book.

Her people don't require a ton of skin coloring, but almost all her books are filled with people.  This is one I did before lessons.

This is the first lesson I did.  It's from Hannah Lynn's Christmas coloring book.  I used prismacolor pencils and the background is drawn in by me!  The original page is just the girl holding the tree.

very nice.  I still prefer geometrics (when I color) because I can zone out and it requires less thought for me.

Thanks.  I do have a knotwork book which I do enjoy for mindless coloring.  I don't think I've posted anything out of it.  Here is one:

I like mandalas as well, but I usually do animal ones vs geometric.  I have a book of tessellations that I enjoy as well:

I haven't done any coloring in probably close to a year.  Since I found out we were expecting a grandbaby I have been spending most of my time on crocheting baby stuff.   I did have 4 pictures I wanted to color for the nursery and I finally got around to starting on them.

I usually color on 8.5x11 paper, but decided to do these as 5x7 so they didn't take up as much room on the nursery wall.   I was able to knock this out in just a few hours.

The image is by Connie Fong and I followed a Kit and Clowder coloring lesson.   If you are interested in learning more about coloring I highly recommend Kit and Clowder.  The woman that runs it is amazing and incredibly helpful.  There is also a facebook group that is absolutely amazing and supportive.  I really can't recommend it enough :)  (no financial association just a happy student)

I was looking for something on youtube a couple days ago and discovered this newish coloring stuff called Spiroglyphics and Lines and Dots.   I sat watching a random person color one of the pages for way longer than I care to admit.   I ordered the Spiroglyphics: Animals book and a lines and dots: animals one as well.   They just came a bit ago and I'm working on one of the spiroglyphics.

This is a great idea for people that get stuck trying to choose colors (you just pick one darkish color) and worry about "ruining" a page.

Hello, my friends from the other boards -- I color and I'm also doing paper art with my Silhouette Cameo.  Have you watched A Colorful Life on YouTube.  Ann is so genuine, kind, and encouraging to her "fruit bats" as she calls her followers.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
