Hi Loves. Tiare here. I love coloring and today it appears to be all the rage. However, I like "old school" coloring. You know not so tiny, tons of details kinda coloring. Most adult coloring books have many, tiny details, and sometimes my eyes just cannot take staring at those details for too long. However, I still want to color. So I thought, why not use my Scandinavia Mixed Media Stencils to create my own coloring page. I don't always feel like doodling. However, stencils are perfect and they take the pressure off of needing to draw or doodle yourself. You can layer and play with the patterns. Woohoo! So I did. This was extremely satisfying.
Grab your Gelatos® Iridescent and let's doodle and color. Here's what I did.
First up, Gesso your entire page. Grab your Scandinavia Mixed Media Stencils and trace the pattern of choice using Journaling Pitt®Artist Pens Medium Nib Black #199. Be sure you use various patterns, shapes, sizes and don't forget you can overlap if you like.
Next, I colored in the shapes. Just color in the shapes with your Gelatos® Iridescents and activate with a water brush. I love how the Gelatos® Supernova makes the flowers really pop and adds a bright happy, fun feel to the page.
Finish it off by coloring the background with Gelatos® Iridescents and activate and spread with a water brush and by adding shimmering, colored pearls to the center of flowers.
