A colourful Saturday morning…

I’m trying to get back into adult colouring in again, as I have only really been able to do a little bit here and there, so here is a picture I started and finished this morning – which is the first one I have completed in a while. This is from the lovely colouring book, ‘Nature’s Beauty’, with the original black and white picture shown in the insert below. I hope it brightens up your day a little 🙂 x

Ivy & The Inky Butterfly…

This is my latest completed double page spread in my adult colouring book, Ivy & The Inky Butterfly by Scottish illustrator, Johanna Basford. I used Staedtler ergo soft pencils, Faber Castelle Aquarelle pencils and Staedtler fine-liner pens.

This book by Johanna is a beautifully illustrated story book filled with enchantment and wonder, and lots of ‘goodies’ to colour such as jewels, butterflies, flora and fauna, treasure, owls, toadstools and even a few dragons, to name but a few!

I completed this picture today after being sent home early from work as we are experiencing a snow blizzard!! Just the right thing to turn a chilly snow day into a cosy relaxing afternoon. I hope the colours and Johanna’s beautiful illustrations bring a smile to your face. xx
