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.

I folded the sheet of paper in half so I could draw a symmetrical heart. Also, I drew the bottom part of the arrow.

I unfolded the sheet of paper, and used the impression from the half traced heart to complete the shape. Thus, I was able to create a symmetrical heart. Also, added the arrowhead to the arrow.

I used a green colored pencil to trace firmly over the heart and arrow illustration, thus transferring an etching to a new sheet of paper.

It is exciting once the entire heart has been colored in. Also, just goes to show how rewarding and creative it is to design your own coloring page. I highly recommend it.

Making A Red And Pink Heart Valentine

Today I finished making a red and pink heart Valentine card.

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.

The simple heart was colored in with a red crayon. Here I am coloring around the red heart with a pink crayon.

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.

Making A Christmas Tree Adult Coloring Page

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 traced around a quarter to make the form of the Christmas tree.
