in print // mollie makes coloring
It's a big thing these days for grown-ups to color. Or as they say in other parts of the world "coloring in". It's relaxing, peaceful, and everything that the world isn't.
Earlier this year I shared a free downloadable coloring page, and I'm working on another (or maybe two!). But I also had the privilege of creating two pages for the new coloring book from Mollie Makes.
My two pages are both nature themed, and they were so much fun to create. Even though I have two pages with similar themes, they're quite different, which was a good challenge to draw. (Also, thankfully my drawing tablet worked the whole time, and promptly decided to be difficult as soon as I was done!)
And how cute are the other designs in here? I love these snails so much! And check out this all-over pattern:
The back of each page is blank, other than a light gray print of the page title and the artist. That means you can pull these out and frame them without losing another design on the back, and you don't have to worry about markers bleeding through to another page. Of course colored pencils are recommended and a set is included!
Okay, a few more page peeks!
I went crazy when I saw that squirrel teacup. Crazy, I tell you! It was at this point when flipping through that I thought "I really need to try embroidering a few of these designs. Yes, everything comes back to embroidery for me. And you should keep that in mind too. People have been using coloring pictures as embroidery patterns for a while, and this new batch of designs should inspire your stitching in a big way.
In addition to the sections of coloring pictures in a few styles, there's also some pages at the back that allow you to add your own drawings and designs. Love!
I'm not sure about the availability of this in the US at this time, but you can order from the UK. So grab your pencils and start coloring in!
