T is for Tea

T is for Tea

Colouring in really is my cup of tea! Hearts and flowers and tea and cake – what’s not to love about this design. And it seems providence has also given me the chance to share my April Blogging from A-Z post as a Word of the Day Challenge post, as today’s word is ‘tea’! 🙂


S is for Symmetrical Seahorses

S is for Symmetrical Seahorses

Sometimes I like to colour in with a spectacular riot of sizzling colour exploding from the page, but at other times I prefer a simpler colour palette, keeping things a bit more subdued and subtle. It’s still every bit as much fun to colour in though, just taking a different approach – here I focussed on maintaining the visual symmetry between the two seahorses to bring a pleasing balance 🙂

Somehow still hanging on with this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge with my colouring in through the alphabet – one week to go, delighted to have got so far without missing a day yet 🙂

Q is for Quantity, Quarter, Quit

Q is for Quantity, Quarter, Quit

As soon as I saw this design, I knew it was going to be fiddly to colour in – it’s just a quantity of tiny shapes like magnified grains of sand spread evenly across the entire page. So far I’ve not even completed a quarter of the whole thing, and already I’ve had enough. Even with my reading glasses, my eyesight is struggling to see each shape clearly, never mind my clumsy arthritic fingers refusing to allow the pens to flow as gracefully as I would like. So sadly, it’s time to quit with this one, I think… 😦

I (usually!) really love colouring in, so am colouring my way through the alphabet for this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge 🙂

P is for Patterns

P is for Patterns

Colouring in is all about colour, but it is also about patterns. In the same way as different colourways of wallpapers can look completely different – even with exactly the same pattern – so can colouring in designs change dramatically with different colour choices. You can choose which patterns to highlight with bright colours and which to blend in with more muted dark shades to create different effects 🙂

Colouring in through the alphabet is my theme for this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge 🙂

O is for Oddity

O is for Oddity

Hmmm… I’m not at all sure what this design is – is it a plant, is it an animal? Or is it just a beautifully flowing oddity? I enjoyed colouring it in, whatever it is! 🙂

For this year’s Blogging from April A-Z Challenge I’m simply colouring my way through the alphabet, one letter at a time… 🙂

N is for Nature

N is for Nature

If I’m not colouring in mandalas, I’m probably colouring in various subjects in nature – plants, animals, or fish – or artistic representations thereof! Curvy, swirly lines that flow from corner to corner, edge to edge… relaxing and rejuvenating 🙂

For this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge I’m colouring my way through the alphabet – what fun!
