Tag Archive: #Escapist Coloring Club



So this is the before picture. I decided to try something new. I have all those pens and markers. So I didn’t do the crayons and pencils this time. I like that it works up faster but I miss the crayon smell and the ability to shadow or highlight.  And I think I see more stroke marks. Bleh! Oh, well, lesson learned and a hot day spent relaxing.

Maybe from an airplane, it looks good. Lessons learned.

Here’s the picture for next time:

So that is my submission of the July Escapist Coloring Club. Thank you, Linda, for a fun prompt.


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!


Escapist Coloring Club

March Edition

So I woke this morning and realized that tomorrow ends March and I hadn’t submitted my coloring project. So here is the picture before:

Yes, that stain is the reverse side of the coffee stain. It became a small hole as I tried to erase it. Oh well. It’s coloring that counts. During this time this is a great stress breaker.

So, here is my finished product. Almost all with some colored pencils that I hope to use up so I can use the prettier, brighter colored ones. I used erasable pens to make certain features stand out.

I wish the colors showed up better but I had to put in hope and love for everyone! And

Happy

 

Linda G. Hill’s Escapist Coloring Club is the place to check out this fun prompt.

 


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”.

 

Dragon Coloring Book

 

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!

 

 

 


I was on that long trip to the town for shopping. I’m exhausted. But at the end of my day, I was rewarded. If you have a Grocery Outlet near you maybe they have these little gems. I can hardly wait to play with them. Zen Doodle books that are $11-20 each. But I think it was $3 for both! I was looking for a clear shower curtain for cheap. That didn’t happen but these books! Yay!

 

 

Sorry for the bad lighting so I included the Amazon links if you click on the pictures. They aren’t badly priced there either. I think I might like to work some of these for Escapist Coloring Club.

Sorry, again to be late to the party but I’m here! Thank you Linda G. Hill for the fun of the Escapist Coloring Club! Below is the picture for this month before coloring. This is a two-headed dragon with a head at each end.

Here’s the finished product:

 

I did try the baby oil for blending and shading. It does work nicely except check out my next picture on the other side of the above page. Oil spots! Ugh!

Wish I didn’t do this at night when there are so many shadows! Still, it’s fun and playing with crayons, pencils, and a couple of pens makes a fun adventure.

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!

One-Liner Wednesday 20190327


Don’t bother me, I’m coloring and then napping! Or the other way around?

There are no challenges about napping that I know of. I would love to make that blanket! But there are only three more days to this month to get our Escapest Coloring Club projects finished. I take it seriously. Thank you, Linda! And for One-Liner Wednesday!


I have been thinking about my next coloring project for the Escapist Coloring Club. I’ve used mostly colored pencils. They’re fine but I miss the smell of crayons. But I couldn’t seem to get my crayons to blend the way I could with pencils. I may have stumbled upon an answer. I thought I would share with the rest of you. By the way, I ran across this answer on Pinterest.

Besides the Baby Oil hint, there are other hints on how to make your coloring experience more fun and creative. I hope you all find these as useful as I did. And I’m with Alisa Burke, I only love Crayola crayons none of the others. Most of the crayons I have tried over the years were waxy and didn’t have that marvelous scent.
