Sometimes the best inspiration is to start with something shared and you make it your own. These “Freebies” are for your personal use and enjoyment!

The Monarchs are Migrating! A color page for inspiration …

The Monarchs are coming!

The Monarchs are coming!

There is nothing better than going to Natural Bridges in Santa Cruz or Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont and seeing all the beautiful butterflies in the trees.  It is a wondrous site and the time will quickly be here to see them.  The migration is a little later this year because we have had such a wet winter, but they are being spotted in Southern California making their way to us from Mexico.   Follow their migration at the Journey North web site:  http://www.learner.org/jnorth/maps/monarch_spring2011.html

I don’t know about you, but I am really ready for Spring this year and I thought it would be fun to celebrate the advent of Spring and the migration with a color page.

I hope you find inspiration and a breath of Spring with this page, as well.  The page has a monarch butterfly landing on tulips and a cocoon in the corner.  The file is in pdf format for easy printing.

I would love to see your final results!

ENJOY!

Paisley Madness For You to Color

I absolutely LOVE Paisley patterns.  This is my personal version and I am sharing the black and white line drawing for you to fill in with your own color scheme.  I like it best with ink pens or markers.

This is a “no brainer” that can be done by kids of ALL ages!

Enjoy!

Peace to All – Color it for Inspiration!

As a young child, I always loved making random swirls across a paper and coloring the fractured pieces.  It is sort of making something out of chaos.  Choosing the color combinations are key to success!

Lately, I have been thinking about my random chaos drawings and thought it would be fun to do again … only with a theme in mind.  I was trying to get a stained glass affect and outlined the actual image in black pen, which in hindsight I think was a mistake.

Attached is the black and white version of this peace sign mosaic … what can you do with it?!  I would love to see what everyone comes up with!  Please share!
