This is a drawing my grand-son made. It is his hand, colored in black, with white lines going in all directions on it. He is learning all about Zentangles, and does all kinds of them, plus many more kinds of drawings. He’s a great artist, and just turned 10 years old. Of course that’s his Grammy’s proud opinion. 🙂

Escapist Coloring Club – September

Escapist Coloring Club – September

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – September 2, 2019

Linda G. Hill hosts this monthly challenge. It’s just for fun. If you’d like to join in, all the details are at the above link. 🙂 Thanks, Linda!

I figured I’d better get my September coloring pages posted before the month comes to an end!

Hard to believe it’s already autumn/fall.

I’ve actually been doing a lot of coloring this month. Surprise – surprise!

I decided I’d painted enough on my coffee mug, so went ahead and finished up with the baking/setting of the colors.

To enlarge photos to see better, just click the image

This was another mug I painted. It was a plain white one. I painted the words Peace on one side, and Love on the other in blue. Then added some blue and yellow dots around the rim & bottom. This was fun to do.

***

***

Now, in the coloring books, here’s a couple of pages.

The book is called, “Happy and Energized Coloring. The pages I did were of a couple of birds and a bird house and some flowers all done in pink and blue. The second one was a multi-colored peacock in a big swirl type image. I think I used markers and pencils on this one.

***

And … I found this cute drawing/coloring book at a garage sale. It’s probably for kids, but I like them anyway. There are lots of pages to color, and also add different things to. This one we were supposed to draw a person on top of the cheerleader pyramid. heh heh about my drawing. 🙂

The book is called, “Best Friends’ Doodles – Delightful doodles to do”. I colored with markers of aqua pants and pink tops, and added a stick on star to each girls t-shirt. There are six girls in the pyramid.

***

I’ve done lots more, and almost filled up another whole coloring book, but will show next time.

Hope you’ve been having some fun coloring days, too. 🙂

I’m a big fan of painted rocks. I like them, and I like painting them myself.

I’ve probably painted hundreds over the years, starting back in the early 1970s.

You can find a rock most anywhere you look, or you can buy bunches of them in craft stores, or gardening centers.

The paint I use is acrylic, which comes in all kinds of pretty colors, and dries fast. I usually try to seal with a clear coat, too.

I do these just for fun, but I also give them as gifts, and for the ongoing Kindness Rock fad that happens all over the world.

“You Rock”

With one little rock

From Rock-a-bye-baby, to

Rock around the clock

Rock ‘n roll with Buddy, and

Jenny from the block

Find a painted rock

Happiness unlock

We rock your world,

And I have to say

You’ll be rocked

Day by day

When I leave some rocks to be found, I put one of my labels on the back. It says:

***

I’ve painted rocks for all kinds of holidays, and/or also just a nice, funny, or uplifting message on them.

Sometimes I actually find a rock someone else has left around town. That’s always fun. I post it to the groups, and then re-hide it for someone else to find. 🙂
