In my spare time, I love to doodle. I doodle night and day. Since adult coloring books are “all the rage” right now, I started drawing some pages to print.
I am actually working on a unique coloring book, so I decided it would be a great idea to start sharing some of my work with you.
Are you excited for spring??
I know I am.
To celebrate, I created this beautiful, hand-drawn bouquet of flowers for you to color!
Usually I do not color in my own designs, but I really wanted to show you some of the possibilities!

I used three different types of art tools:
- Colored pencils
- Watercolor pencils
My favorite colored pencils are Prismacolor pencils! They are great for blending and creating beautiful, smooth colors. The trick for these is layering–layer the color for a darker look or multiple for custom colors! This is a great starter kit!
For my next coloring page, I used markers. I am getting some of these Copic brand markers (I bought some to try for next month’s doodle) and looking into some other brands, but in the meantime I used my boys’ Crayola SuperTips markers because they are bright and bold and easy to use. These are a little more difficult to layer, but it is possible! Layer darker colors on the top so you don’t ruin the marker tips.
I absolutely love the watercolor look so I decided to use my Staedtler watercolor pencils. These are great because you can color your pictures in as with regular colored pencils then you can add water to the top, either to the whole design or just certain parts, to give it a smoother, brighter look.
