Wednesdays are WIP Days over on the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.
Today, as part of my December/Advent gifts, I created this Christmas themed mandala for them to colour in.
If you’d like to colour this one in, then pop over to the facebook group, join and download and print the template for your own personal use – no selling, sharing and so on, either uncoloured or coloured! Don’t forget, the group members, and myself, love to see how you bring the template to life with colour!
I used my Microsoft Surface pen to draw the mandala on my Microsoft Surface book in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro. I then used the same tools to colour the mandala.
I’m a bit late getting myself organised this year as to making cards and getting some up on Etsy for sale! However, there’s still time to buy or order some!
The photographs don’t do these cards justice. They subtly shimmer with fine gold and silver mica powders. They have glitter and glitz thanks to Tonic Studio’s Nuvo Crystal drops and Uniball Signo Sparkling pens. The image panels are ‘popped up’ on foam so they have some dimension to them.
All are hand-drawn, coloured and embellished in my own unique, cutesy, wonky, whimsical style. There’s no greeting on the the front inside so you can either add your own or ask for them to be customised for you.
They’re all rather whimsical, and each is unique.
