"The Time Garden" Coloring Book

I'm working on this page from my "time garden" coloring book.


Here it is. The pictures in this book illustrate a short story which is presented at the front of the book. Additional sentences which add to the story are included on a few pages within the book. 

A cuckoo clock plays a major part in the story. 



My friends and family praise me for my coloring projects. I've been told that I'm talented. To create these pictures and the accompanying story requires REAL talent.

I'm so thankful for all the artists who have created the many coloring books I've acquired in the past few months.

We were in a store last weekend and I paused to "just look" at their coloring books. Lon was looking over my shoulder and was impressed with this particular one. I told him I had enough books but he insisted I add this one to my collection.

I'M GLAD I LISTENED!!!

Obsessed With Coloring

I've posted some of the coloring projects I've been working on. 

The true richness of the colors isn't evident in these photos. The metallic pens I often use seem to reflect the light.


I have finished this one and displayed it at work. When I bring it home, I'll try to remember to take a photo so you can see the finished picture. 

I need to do something to eliminate the rippling in the background of this picture which I just moved to our kitchen counter. Perhaps some cardboard directly behind the colored page will help.


I showed this on a previous blogpost when it was half finished.  Now it's complete, except for a frame.



I used removable adhesive dots to adhere this and the following two photos to the wall in my "studio" (our extra room).





I am presently working on this challenge.


This is a close up of my work-in-progress...

...and another...

...one more...

...and my final close up of the page I'm working on.


If you tilt your computer screen you can see the metallic qualities of the ink pens I used in most of these pictures.  

I truly hope you enjoyed the show.
