Escapist Coloring Club – February

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – February 1, 2018

Can you believe it’s February already?

This means it’s time for another visit to the Escapist Coloring Club, hosted by Linda G. Hill!

If you enjoy coloring, this club is where we can show off what we’ve been doing during the month.

For all the details, just click the above link. šŸ™‚

So, I color pages in my books pretty much every evening, and have done a lot of pages. I just need to pick one to show you.

First, though, is the page I’d started last time, and is now finished. I have a bit a trouble finding the same color marker that I used the time before. You can tell on some of these where I didn’t quite pick the right one.

Next is one I’ve started, but it’s not quite finished yet, and the book.

Ā 

And this one, I finished, using both markers and colored pencils. I like the one lady’s hair that I colored pink and blue and the other is orange and red. I know these pages say they are fashions from the 1950s, but I wanted her to have a more funky look, as I see lots of people these days that have all different colors in their hair. I think I didn’t do the outlining their faces very good. I was probably getting tired, as it is late in the evening when I’m doing these. Oh well… it’s fun, anyway. šŸ™‚

  1. I have a mandala colouring calendar that i try to color each month. Love the pictures in it………wish i could do more, but it hurts. I have four months now 3/4 done. sigh

    • I’ll bet the part you’ve done so far is really pretty. Have you tried those coloring apps? Maybe that would be less hurtful for your hands. Linda says they will be perfectly fine to use on here. šŸ™‚

  2. I love the colours you chose for the sixties one. Sooo very sixties! šŸ˜€ And the dots in the mandala picture are a great touch.
    Thanks so much for joining in, Barbara! ā¤

  3. I love the guitar one. Nice coloring. I have that problem too with not picking the same color if I stop before I’m finished. I started leaving those colors out with the book to help me with that.

    • Thanks, Diana!! I know what you mean. The time goes by while I’m absorbed in the coloring. I keep saying just a little more…haha! I’ve been setting aside 45 minutes to an hour in the evening, and now it’s a habit. Also, collecting more and more of those coloring books! It’s hard to stop. šŸ™‚

  5. I would absolutely LOVE to get the information on that women’s coloring book from the 50’s! If you can send the name and information or even just a few of the pages for a project I am doing, I will certainly return the favor by offering to you something in exchange šŸ™‚

    • Thanks for your visit here. About the coloring book…It’s called, “Fabulous Fashions of the 1950s”. On the inside page it says it was copyright 2016 by Ming-Ju Sun, and published by Dover Publications, Inc. I found the coloring book at the craft store “Hobby Lobby”. Here is the website to find more coloring books with Creative Haven … it’s http://www.doverpublications.com/CreativeHaven … Hope this helps. šŸ™‚

      • Hi again! Sorry the link didn’t work for you. I’m not sure why, as I just clicked on it and it was fine. It’s the Creative Haven site, and shows all kinds of coloring books. I’m not sure if they still have that exact one we were talking about, but they do have a great variety. Hope you can find something you can use. šŸ™‚
