Coloring Books are Good for Your Soul

The gals at Mountain Plains Crafters had a great time last week hopping along showcasing  Adornt's Art Play Paintables. This week we are highlighting their new line of coloring books.. With designs by Lindsay Ostrom, Carolee McMullin, Stephanie Ackerman, and She She Designs,  these are printed on heavy watercolor cardstock and have both large page-sized designs as well as some smaller Art Play sized options. There are 8 coloring books with a variety of themes- Christmas, Halloween, Live Simply and Critter Friends to name a few..

I decided to use my coloring book -- Live Simply by She She Designs -- to make some cards representing support for Cancer Awareness. I used 2 of the larger designs and cut them apart to make cards out of them. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it always gets the most publicity. But I wanted to spotlight a few others that have touched my life. And show my support for all those whose lives have been impacted by cancer -- patients, family members, friends, supporters, caregivers.. I used  Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Stampin' Up Markers to color the designs. I colored directly onto the paper and also used the acrylic block technique & my water brush. I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush for highlights. The sentiments are from the Unity Stamp Company kit "All Things Are Possible".
