Holiday Coloring

During the five-day Thanksgiving holiday, I spent some time coloring in front of the tv, watching This Is Us and Blindspot. 

Things I realize from this endeavor are that I need more light in my living room (although I did some purposeful coloring outside the lines if I planned to trim the image, I also have some not-quite-in-the-lines stuff I didn't intend), images can't be too small or I spend a lot of time trying to get it right and the point is having fun, not stressing and I love Tombow markers for their bright colors (which ok, I knew already but am loving the stained glass in these).

Here's an image from 2 Cute Ink digital stamps. The too-small version and the good-sized version. I don't have a brown Tombow, turns out so the cocoa is maybe white chocolate :) I used some of my Sparkle Noir pens to add a touch of color and sparkle...you can see it on the big cup handle a little. I get way more sparkle from these than the Wink of Stella.



This one is an image from Dawn Nicole that I shared on my blog last week. It's a full page here, so I think it's going in my art journal. It's done in Prismacolor pencils.

This is a free image I found here at 101 Coloring Pages and is perfect with the Tombow Brights.



This last one can be found on my blog too, linked to the original site. I love coloring flowers, but I think using Gamsol with the pencils would've made for better flower blending. This one I also printed a little small. Also, this is a lot of flowers to color...Live and Learn!

Did you do any crafty things over the weekend?
Happy Monday!
