Last month I didn’t even get to the coloring. But I think we need this fun escape. So I prioritized. And my hands were hurting from socking too much. I think I have a dozen socks in the process. My new X-Wing fighter is a lot of fun to figure out. Yet I still haven’t finished my daughter’s and her boyfriend’s sock. They are close but that last bit at the cuff is the part I can’t do on auto-drive. I need to watch what I’m doing and not miss stitches. So that bit on the bottom right is my daughter’s nearly done sock. The yarn tied on each of the wings is to keep a big tangle from happening from sock to sock. The bottom wing is me trying to figure out certain stitches and how I can move the wedges around instead of increasing and decreasing.

Oh, yeah, this is about coloring!

Here is the before:

This time I needed the smell of crayons.

I need new pens or something as the colors are just not as bright as I wanted. And they certainly don’t show up on the cell pic. Well, it was fun to sit and color regardless. Next month I have a better project and new coloring instruments to play with.

Here’s the preview:

More places to put the colors!

Thank you, Linda, for the Escapist Color Club!


This is my presentation to the Escapist Coloring Club. Sorry I’ve missed the last few months. I like to color. Why is it I put it off?

Here’s the before:

 

I used a combination of crayons, color pencils, and gel pens. Oh, that brownish stain on the right side of the page, that I remembered to put the blank white paper over in the before, It was on my husband’s side of the table where I kept the book. I think it was coffee. I tried to erase it or cover it up with a white pastel. Now I will keep it in my little lap-desk!

 

 

The quote below the picture didn’t show up all that well. It says:

The mysterious and elusive fairy dragons are often mistaken for large butterflies or dragonflies. They were favorite companions and mounts of the ‘wee people”.

Oh, I have a new desk to keep my coloring and writing supplies.

My Desk


Not waiting until the last day of the month. Luckily this is May and there are 31 days! 🙂 Here’s my May project Empty first then color-penciled (noun becomes a verb!).

 

 

 

 

 

This guy was fun to work with. Imagine a colorful feathered dragon!

Here’s next month’s dragon (butterfly dragon?):

Thank you, Linda G. Hill, for this fun challenge!

Foreshadowing Dragons

I lost my favorite photo editing app when my computer died recently. So these pictures may not be very clear. Any free editors you all can suggest here, please share! Anyway, the above it the before.

Hope you can get the gist of what is said under the picture about the red dragon and the white dragon.  So I tried to stay with that theme as I colored. No, I didn’t use Baby Oil as I forgot to put it on my shopping list. Maybe for the next coloring project, I can try it. Here is my next challenge:

Brought to you by Linda G. Hill. Thanks for the fun!


I colored this for the last day of the month. But then the escaping shoulder joint of my husband’s sent us out into the Snowmaggedon and sleep didn’t happen until 5 AM. By the way, his shoulder is fixed so…

I just wonder if this counts for my turn in for February still? At midnight the first of March we were in the ER. I didn’t want to use my phone to post more than the simplest post. First my eyes have a hard time on the phone screen and second my fingers never hit the right keys.

Without further ado…

Unfinished:

 

Finished:

Thank you, Linda G. HIll, for the coloring fun.

For March this will be my challenge:


I guess I never capture the page before I got busy. Way back a couple months ago I decided to watercolor in the sky. Bad idea and it discouraged me. I didn’t want to touch it again.

Since it is One-Liner Wednesday I thought maybe I should make use of the extra time and pulled it out and determined to finish it.

Here is the finished product:

I kind of like it now. And I’ve already taken the picture of the next one so I’me ahead of the game.

Once again, the Escapist Coloring Club is brought to us by the every busy, Linda G. Hill. Thanks for all your ideas!

Late to the Party!


Sorry to be late to the party, Linda G. Hill. Busy month. But here’s my Coloring Escape Page:

I’m horrid at taking pictures. This is the least blurry of the three I took. I colored this while watching Kong: Skull Island.  I had to make my reptile look better than the beasts on that show! Dragons have pride, you know! (I’ll try to get to this fun earlier in the month next time.)

Thank you, Linda G. Hill, for always being an inspiration!

So, a few years ago my daughter gave me a couple coloring books and color pencils.

 

I played in them off and on but only was this far last spring:

I didn’t like the pre-done bits in either picture like all the dark parts in the Mandala or all the scales and shading on the dragons but decided because Linda set us to task to get busy and try. I finished (I think) the dragons. There still may be things to do but here I am now.

Besides the mandala to finish, this is the next dragon:

This one looks like a lot more fun! What do others prefer to color with? I want to try pastels or actual crayons but feel I need to learn more about the pencils. Maybe I should wait for the next picture as this is on the back of that multi-dragon and maybe the wax of crayons will bleed through?


Cyrus LongBones and the Curse of the Sea ZombieCyrus LongBones and the Curse of the Sea Zombie by Jeremy Mathiesen

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

You wnt boys to read? Keep the action going. Want girls to read it? I wouldn’t. The action is fine. But here’s the female line-up:
An abusive step mother
A zombie water witch
a girl-sister(?) who needed rescuing

It seems you want to grow heroes but don’t want them to be female. And don’t care to teach inclusiveness in any way.

Sorry. All that action was boring to me and I wouldn’t recommennd it to boys or girls for what it doesn’t teach.

Just Coloring

Thanks to Linda G Hill for reminding me that I like to color. Here’s what I’ve done on my two coloring books I got for Christmas a couple years ago. Yeah, I don’t do it very often.
