Hello everyone, I am sharing some of my colouring pages from the A4 Colouring Pages Kit with you today, two of which you may have caught on the recent TV shows on Hochanda. These fabulous pages are so relaxing to colour in a vast range of mediums, and Sue's designs will really capture your imagination. The beautiful floral designs are absolutely stunning, and having the practice pages included in your pack of pages gives you the confidence to try out any colour combinations before you make a start on the main designs themselves.
I used colouring pencils
on all three of my designs, as I love to use pencils, but I have used
different types of pencils on each design, as I will explain as I go along.
my first design, I used Inktense pencils, choosing vibrant shades of
blues and plums for the flowers. I coloured the design in full, and then
went over the images with a water brush, to blend the colours, adding
more shading with the pencils again afterwards, if necessary. These fabulous pencils create a really intense hit of colour once water is added, and the picture really comes alive.
I cut the top of one of the pages down to size, and coloured this
with Coloursoft pencils, using a much smaller colour palette, to tone in
with the background card that I had chosen. I only have a smaller set of the pencils, as they were what I started out with, but I have always loved these pencils. I really enjoyed creating this project as a way of revisiting this set of pencils. I have blended reds and greens together, and different shades of greens on leaves and branches, just as you would find in Nature, because nothing is just a flat colour if you look at it closely.
I added a row of faux
stitching around the edge, and matted the page and background card onto a
large black card blank.
Amazing Mackintosh Words
stamp set, which had been stamped onto a scrap of card left from
another project. I also added faux stitching around the sentiment. Some
green ribbon was added to complete the tag:
