For Valentine’s Day I decided to make my own coloring page with a red heart and a metallic arrow going through it. Yes, I create Valentine art for the festivity of it all, and this day does not have to be about romance. Projects with a Valentine’s Day theme are fun for people of all ages to create, and why not enjoy spending time with loved ones working on a craft.
The card above is a reprint of the Valentine heart card that I created. The first step in designing this card was the fold a sheet of paper into a quarter section. Next, I drew a heart on the front of the card.
A fine-tipped black sharpie was used to trace around the heart, and then I colored it in with a red crayon. Next, I used a pink crayon to color in the background behind the heart image.
The video illustrates how I created this simple Valentine card.
Adult coloring books can be pricey, but it is simple and fun to make your own Christmas tree coloring page with materials from an odds and ends drawer. When I noticed that adult coloring books were trending on social media this holiday season, I was curious because in general I prefer to draw my own pictures. Also, I noticed the adult coloring books were often sold for around twenty dollars, so I thought there was definitely a way to make your own.
Over the holiday season I planned to post this project to the blog, but I just ran out of time. This Christmas tree coloring page was created by tracing around a quarter, a dime, and a penny, and the illustration was colored in with crayons, markers, and oil pastels. This art project demonstrates how supplies from around the house can be used to create a coloring page. I still think hand-drawn illustrations are more exciting, but using simple objects to create illustrations is a fast way to make a coloring page. Of course you can also create more detailed coloring pages, but it is just pretty darn fun to realize that pocket change can be used to design a Christmas tree image.
I was happy with how this simple Christmas tree coloring page turned out, and perhaps I will make a few more in the future.
