Blue and White Vase – adult colouring

This week I have taken my inspiration from this small blue and white Chinese vase. It was originally bought by my grand-mother and has been in the family for over 50 years. I’m very fond of this vase as it reminds me of happy childhood memories!

Although the real vase is blue and white, I’m interested to see what colours you choose to use!

Totem – Portmeirion Pottery – colouring project

It’s nearly a year ago since my mother-in-law kindly gave us her collection of Portmeirion ‘Totem’ pottery. It was designed in the 60s by Susan Williams-Ellis and I have always loved its sputnik-like textural design. Totem was also produced in amber, green and white, but I have to admit that the deep blue is definitely my favourite!

The collection now lives in a glass fronted corner cupboard from where it is brought out for use at Christmas and other special occasions.

The first colouring project – fancy birds

Welcome to my new website and I’m so pleased that you have visited me here. This is my new place to share all my fun and relaxing art projects… And I very much hope that you will join in.

As we are now in the first official week of spring, I thought I would begin with something symbolic of this refreshing season. My garden is full of birds of all colours and sizes, who are all searching for the best nest sites. The males are strutting their stuff up and down the fence in the hope of attracting the females! This scene is what has inspired me and I have mixed it up with a bit of artistic licence to produce my first project for you.

I have entitled this project ‘Fancy Birds’ and have left the background blank for you to add in some of your own details if you wish, you can just leave it as it is or make it a plain colour – it’s up to you!

Simply print off the project sheet and then let your imagination run riot with your pens and pencils!

When you have finished, you can share your work by posting it in the Lost in Doodles Facebook group

I’m looking forward to seeing your completed projects and maybe featuring some of them on this blog.

I hope you enjoy this project and would love to know what you think of it and the site. You can post in the comments below or email me  at  info@thewatercolourjournals.co.uk

Wishing you a happy and creative week,
