In addition to sewing and crocheting, I’m a big fan of coloring as a creative outlet. I don’t have good light anywhere in the house, so I only color on bright winter day when I have a nice amount of natural light. Lately, I’ve been working on Enchanted Forest. I’ve been trying to work through my perfectionist tendencies, choosing colors quickly, coloring a little less perfectly, and in general just trying to enjoy myself. That’s why I call it color therapy, working on some of those tendencies that can get in the way of completing tasks or not enjoying yourself.
I even colored this picture out of order *gasp* ever since I was a little girl I have felt the need to color books straight through in order.
I’ve also been working on blending markers together for a more interesting effect. This is usually something I shy away from because I get too worried about things not blending seamlessly.
