This month’s adult coloring page is all about…FOOD!
I am always creating recipes and talking about food…and eating food…so, naturally, I was all over this food thing. I decided to draw one of my favorite foods–a banana split.
Banana Split Recipe
One of our family mottos is “Some days you just need ice cream for dinner.” We love adding fruits, proteins (like peanut butter or walnuts), and grains (like broken up pieces of cone) to our dairy ice cream so we get a decent variety of food groups. This is one reason why banana splits are just so awesome.
Some days you just need ice cream for dinner.
When creating this adult coloring page, I wanted it to be something of value. For this reason, I decided I would add a fun recipe to it! After you color this page, you can add it to your recipe collection! I have a few more I am wanting to create and share with you, so keep an eye out for those.
You probably noticed that many parts of the banana split has a pattern with the ingredients inside of it. I really wanted to highlight key ingredients. There are bananas inside the bananas, chocolate chips inside the chocolate chips, and so on.
To fill in this adult coloring page, I used:
This coloring page is styled to look a little bit retro, so I chose colors to fit. Rather than use a bunch of different art supplies and techniques on this one, I kept it pretty basic for now with mainly shading in with colored pencils and a small amount of highlights with art markers. I did use a colorless blender to make things look smoother. If I go back through, I will probably use some watercolor pencils and perhaps more markers go give it a bolder look.
Do you know what would be super sweet? I would love if you’d sprinkle your social media accounts, emails, etc. with the link to this post so your friends and family can enjoy this page! Pretty please, with a cherry on top?? Know someone who loves coloring, ice cream, recipes, or all three? Share it with him/her! I’d love for you to share your completed pages with me, either to [email protected], on my Facebook, tag @Artscrackers on Instagram or @AlyssaDarbyBlog on Twitter with the hashtag #ColoringTribe, or share in our Coloring Tribe group!
