Blow up the balloons and get out your colored pencils….

Tuesday August 2nd is national coloring book day! Who knew!!  So let’s blow up some balloons and have a party!

Since I have a recently published coloring book, 31 Days of Coloring HOPE, I thought it would be lots of fun to have a day full of specials, give aways,  challenges, and color technique tutorials.

I would love for you to stop by and participate in all of the fun! To not miss a moment of it, just sign up as a follower and you will get all of the activity posts right to your inbox. Typically I only post occasionally, but on Tuesday expect to receive several of them as it will be a day full of fun!

Can’t wait to see you tuesday!

two days left…

31 days cover…for the pre-sale of 31 days of Coloring HOPE!  For these last two days, i will be sweetening the pot…

For the purchase of 5 books: In addition to the 8×10 limited edition print, I will be adding 3 of my favorite colors of Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils and a Marvy blender pen.  These are awesome tools as you don’t have to have water to activate your watercolor pencils. Just glide the pre-moistened brush over your coloring and the colors blend like they were painted!

One of my absolute favorite tools for coloring on the go!

I am then upgrading the 15 book purchase from 6 inktense watercolor pencils, to a 12 piece set! And I am throwing in a Marvy blender pen too!

Woot – you are going to love these blender pens.

For the 25 book purchase you will receive a 24 piece intense set and 2 Marvy blender pens. That should make your color gathering move right along!

For 50 books, you will receive a 36 piece inktense set and 3 Marvy blender pens!!

Publishing soon….

Step out of stress and busyness into the peace and serenity of color aided meditation. Each of the 31 pictures features a word to focus on while you color. The flip side of the page gives the artist a bit of encouragement and a corresponding verse from scripture to delve a bit deeper. The smaller and simpler format allow for a quicker on the go completion of the artwork. In this busy fast paced world, we all need to carve out moments in our day to explore what is inside us, and shut out the noise that steals our peace. 31 days of hope will do just that, bring hope to those moments and clarity to your thoughts. Once completed, share with a friend who needs a word of encouragement.
I’m so excited to have my first coloring book coming out soon. It has been quite a journey for sure, and I’m thankful that it is all coming together.  Funny, this one hasn’t even published yet, and I am already planning the next one 🙂 I truly love sketching…and then the encouraging that goes along with this type of coloring book keeps me inspired.  Excited to see what God has in store next!

Still working on my fiction titles….that seems to be a much longer process, so it may be a bit….it’s taking shape nicely though!!

So….my question is this….what do you think of the description….not sure I’m all in on this. Something doesn’t sound right. It has been such a busy few weeks that my brain just isn’t working as it should.  So I thought I would reach out to the blogging world here and get some opinions….

This title will be available on July 22nd….if everything goes well with the proof. I will be running a pre-sale in about a week, with perks if anyone is interested.

Stay tuned  for more information!!
