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)

That is lovely! I have to get back to coloring too.

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.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      Are you an I Love Lucy fan?
      My two favorite episodes are "The Freezer" and "Lucy Does a TV Commercial."

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.

      I want to paint my hallway bright orange, my sons room bright sea green, and then the dilemma: What color for the laundry?

      Since April we have been looking for a house that has at least one bedroom on the main floor in one of several neighborhoods that are not too far (half hour or less) from our doctors and our kids.  We keep escalating what we are willing to pay.  We keep relaxing the “must haves” — but every house we have wanted has either gone under contract before we even saw it, or gone under contract as we were in the process of offering for it.  It is very discouraging.  I feel that I am living in limbo ever since the pandemic.
