That’s Art, Baby! #8:  Shape Challenge

The picture below was a challenge from the Hanna Karlzon colouring group on Facebook.  I hadn’t been colouring or making books or doing much of anything crafty in quite some time and I decided to join this little challenge for fun.  We were asked to colour a picture, but leave a “shape” only shaded in black and grey within the picture.  This was my take …

That’s Art, Baby! #7:  Another homemade journal complete

Another journal complete!  I am truly LOVING making homemade journals.  It’s a lot of work but very rewarding at the same time.
This one here is for a family member!  She would not tell me what she liked or what colours she preferred so I did my best based simply on confirmation from her daughter that the only colour she doesn’t like (but yet doesn’t hate …

That’s Art, Baby! #6: More colouring pages

This is a quick little post.  I  haven’t posted since October and I wanted to get something posted and I’m not ready for a book review yet.
So, not only am I not ready to post a book review, but I have not been creating much lately either.  This is it.  This picture from Johanna Basford’s Christmas colouring book. I don’t know if it was the …

That’s Art, Baby! #5:  Another finished project.. or two.

I haven’t posted anything in a bit.  I have been working on my journals and reading every day, but just not a lot of posting about it. So I thought I would share my last two journals with you today.
Firstly, these are pictures from the journal that I made for my husband. Unfortunately, I cannot show the images from inside because I don’t know about …

That’s Art, Baby!  #3:  Homemade Journals

It’s been awhile since posting an art post. What have I been up to? Well, a lot actually!
I finally finished a colouring page that I was working on.  It was a long one and I finally came back to it and finished it off.

This double spread page from Johanna Basford’s Enchanted Forest colouring book was mostly done with Prismacolor Premiers, but when I went back …

That’s Art, Baby! #2:  To sign or not to sign…

I know this Art feature was supposed to talk about any and all art and here is my second post in this feature and AGAIN I’m talking about Adult Colouring Books.  I guess it’s because that’s pretty much what I’m focusing most of my free time on these days.  I’m still reading and I’ll have another review up soon, but for today let’s talk colouring and …

That’s Art, Baby! #1:  The Adult Colouring Book World

Guilty!  I admit it!  I have jumped on the “Adult Colouring” bandwagon!
We were looking for a colouring book one day.  A plain ole regular kids colouring book.  I told my husband that I wanted one.  He’s like, “Really?” I’m like, “Yeah!  I think I do.”  I just felt like colouring like I used to when I was a kid. I remember spending hours doing the paint …

I have finally found my feature!

I have been going nuts for the past couple of years to find a feature to add to this blog that spices it up a bit.
First and foremost it is a book blog, but there are so many wonderful book blogs out there that have other interesting posts that are not book related.  Some people don’t like that, but I do.  It shows different sides …
