I made some colouring pages with full-page Wild Gears patterns. I drew the designs in black ink, scanned them, cleaned them up in Photoshop and printed them off.
Then the fun began. I have to say I was surprised at how much I got into it. At first I wanted to give each “square” (never really square) a different colour from its neighbour as in a patchwork quilt. Then my sister Pam visited. She found a human-like figure in one of the designs, and brought it out with her colour choices and thickened some lines….
Well, duh! She showed me that you can take this much farther, if you have a true artist’s eye. Colour outside the lines!
Anyway, here are some examples that I’ve done. If you find this inspiring, you can buy my colouring pages on Etsy right here. Give me encouragement and I’ll make more!
