Secret Garden- flower Coloring

Hi everyone,

This has to be a small post, just to try to keep you updated, and share the fun and joyful moments of coloring this Secret Garden book, along with Lost Ocean. Trying what to me is new coloring media, being frustrated at awful result at times followed by repetitive come back to my comfort zone that is crochet I am done that crochet top, still working on a crochet lace blouse and a dress for myself. Turns out my daughter is not really interested in dressing crochet for the moment, and given the fact that she is so proud of her colored purse whenever she feels like it I can whip her something nice.

So here is my latest finalized coloring page, I used only Polychromos as I am infatuated with it. So what happened is that my daughter loved stage  number 2, my husband stage 3, I was divided into doing a background from lighter to darker in the outer edges. A couple of days later fate would have it that somehow on a morning there was a blob of some dirty at the upper left top of the page, there I go trying to blend it in and having to actually work on he background. Never leave your art unattended folks. That’s it for now, till very soon!

IMG_20160213_120507Hi lovely people,

 

If you follow me on Facebook you had already seen my heart, I was trying to enjoy colouring and blending with Staedler pencils form a se I bought for my daughter who is turning 10 next Wednesday.
She was 5 when we came to Canada, life goes by, in a flash.
That is exactly why I am writing here today, to thank the readers who now and again still stop by even though I haven´t been so present anymore.
Thank you!
Anyway, for what it is worth tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I care about you a lot, this drawing might not the best ever but yet, here it goes, as life is perfect in its imperfections and surprising everyday:

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Love and let yourself be loved.! 🙂

 

Hope you come back,

 

Drikka

 

P.S.: I liked Staedler but can’t help but looove Prismacolor and Polychromos.

Secret Garden -Owl pencil coloured

Hi everyone,

HAPPY NEW YEAR,

I sure do hope you have a nice smooth full of colurs and excitement new year. We started off going downtown to make sure we saw the fireworks said a proper goodbye to 2015 and start 2016 kind of from scratch. I worked like a farm horse last year and so maybe maybe this year I will have more leasurable time to enjoy with my small beloved family.
It took me a month to come up with the colours and shading, blending overlaying in this copy I made from original book by Johanna Basford, I loved how it looks like now I have to tranfers to the book, meaning -do it all over again.

Remember the fun is is in the doing not having done.

So you do you think? Not professinal, don’t be harsh. I crocheted too though will show in another post not to be too confusing,

Colouring Books

I know it´s been a long time, I apologize. We have finally been back home to Brazil and back. Before we took off I was looking for something that would keep me busy for most of the time, so I bought myself a nice and Zen coloring book at Chapters West Edmonton Mall right before we checked out, called Colouring Meditation.

I hadn’t coloured in a century, or more, I took some drawing lessons, which I absolutely loved back in 1999 I guess, then I gravitated to painting oil on canvas, loved even more, and because of so many reasons after a few paintings and having a baby not willing to practice at home I put everything to rest, until after she was about 3 when I really started working with colours again that was with my crochet, well it works for me, I can see my hands move about a surface or yarn or thread that has some colour on it and more, create something out of it.

Anyway coming back to my coloring kind of journey, I ended up almost not having to occupy myself in the colouring at that time (mid August) because just the thoughts of being with my mom siblings and beloved ones after so much time did the trick and kept me quite busy.

I started with this in September, but have been more searching for nice ideas and ways of working with these media that are kind of alien to me now. So here are some of my attempts so far not many, I am having fun and even bought that Secret Garden the other day so I can have another go with it. So far I have only been having fun watching lovely tutorials on YouTube. Let’s see…

Here tell me what you think,I also have a few more pictures in my facebook page GlaserCrafts or not but share with me:
