Colouring Book page 2


  I just stopped by to share another completed page in my Big Monster Colouring Book

For my second page I used oil pastels ,

And a little glitter glue on her eye lashes.

I was having so much fun I forgot yet again to take a before picture.

I hate it when that happens Lol!......maybe next time.

Colouring Book Page 1


No new artwork to show you today but I have completed my first page in the 

Big Monster Colouring book by Juliette Crane.

For the first page I used just coloured pencils.

 Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture so it is hard to appreciate the change

 and the colour is not showing up very well here.

I am looking forward to playing around with different media as I work my way through the book as

 Juliette invites you to colour and doodle to transform her original artwork 

into your own unique art pieces. 

You can see her whimsical artwork here.

I want to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU  to my loyal blog friends 

who continue to pop by and see what I am up to.


 and I really love to hear from you.

I am sorry for this lull in creativity but I hope to return to normal soon.

Checking In


It's been a long time since my last post.

I have been unwell yet again with bad gastroenteritis and

I am also on crutches with suspected cartilage trouble
It is my daughters wedding in two weeks time and

crutches are not a good look for Mother of the Bride. 

I am going to try and manage without them but will have to see

how it goes. Either way I will be hobbling around.

I have no art to share today but I wanted to to show you my latest Art Book purchase.

Juliette Cranes Colouring book Big Monster and The Painting Workbook by Helena Hennessy.

Two beautiful books for me to treasure.

I did manage a visit to a beautiful park not far from where I live that I hadn't been to before.

It was a lovely day and in the park there was a little wood covered in bluebells.

I have also been spending time on Pinterest. 

I remember some time ago a couple of fellow bloggers said that they were addicted to Pinterest

and I didn't see the attraction. But I signed up recently and found that there is so much more to see 

and so much inspiration to be found. Art-wise that is. 

Well I hope to be back soon with some artwork of my own, Hopefully after the wedding I can get

 back into the swing of things again.

Bye for now.
