Secret Garden -Owl pencil coloured

Hi everyone,


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:
