A love of ‘Colouring In’ …

Sine childhood, I have loved the therapeutic and relaxing nature of ‘colouring in’. Today, I went back to my roots! I’m in the process of setting up a small shop on ‘Etsy’ and have been making, painting and photographing original watercolours on cards which can then subsequently be framed.

Today I used a favourite colour scheme: sepia with a red, a green, a yellow and a blue added. I also used stamps with gold (sepia-ish?!) ink, I then spent quite some time using watercolour paints to ‘colour in’ each image. I’m really pleased with the result – when I asked my 10 year old what he thought, he began by saying they were ‘cool’, he then added ‘if I were a grown-up and a woman, I’d buy them!’ I think that’s a positive endorsement …

Here are photos of each design:

I hope to have my Etsy shop up and running by early next week, I’ll be posting on here once it is open.

I must just finish by thanking Alana over at The Little Leaf for all her advice and help. Be sure to check out her blog as well as her Etsy shop.

  1. An Etsy shop, that’s great. I really like the flower one at the top with the patterns in them. Really cute/girly : )
