Color Me Stunning

Color Me Stunning

It's Caturday and time for the Caturday Art Blog Hop. Humans have some strange hobbies they use to relax themselves. Some knit, crochet or do some sort of needlework; some read; others do puzzles and still others color. Once again I'm postponing the art I had all written and planned cos I made something much better; something to relax your human.

I haven't done coloring pages in awhile so I though today would be the day. The last ones I did were of Nicky. These are better cos they're ME. The original images were so dark, grainy and unusable they've been deleted.

In case you want to know about the lead image, TW loves the smell of Crayola Crayons and happened to have some handy so we set up this shot. We digitally colored the rock which looks so natural you would think it was colored before we snapped the pic. You would be wrong. Here's another pic from the same shoot to prove it. A little imagination goes a long way and a little is all TW has.

I'm posed with the big orange rock but you can color it any color your heart desires. We tried to lighten the photo a bit in Photoshop and then used the Photocopy filter under Sketch. We played with the settings until we liked one and cleaned up some of the speckles. You can click on the images to biggify. Enjoy!

This one didn't come quite as good but I'll bet it's still fun to color.

If you like coloring pictures of cats, there's a Facebook group called Cat Colorings I'd encourage you to join. I'd love you to post these on Facebook after you color them. Lemme also put in a plug for my furrend Brewskie Butt cos his new coloring book looks pawsome.

Does your human like adult coloring books?

Thanks to Athena and Marie for hosting the pawsome weekly Caturday Art Blog Hop. Even if you have no artistic talent, you can participate by using an online editor or template.

We don't do adult coloring books around here... but my human wishes she had the time to publish one!

The Staff has been playing with crayons for a while - since she was about two! - but nowadays she prefers colorfy on the iPawd as it's less messy!!! How clever to make your own! xxx

As a kid, I loved coloring a lot. Haven't done for a long long time, but I know I'd enjoy adult coloring books. Cat Colorings sounds fun!

You are always stunning CK!

It all sounds purrfectly relaxing. I must have a go.

Mariodacat said...

I'm impressed, you even have a coloring page of yourself. M isn't sure she could stay within the lines because of her Essential Tremors. Looks like fun tho and very relaxing for a human.

C.K., this is so cool. TW is super talented to be able to do this. Mom does like to color and has a Kliban coloring book she likes a lot. Please forgive us for not stopping by lately. Our silly mom has been spending most of her time working on house projects rather than taking us visiting. We promise to o better.

We're thankful that the mom hasn't taken up coloring yet. It would be one more thing for her to spend time doing...and not spending time with us!

Deb Barnes said...

My gosh! You're so creative... and we're with the Island Cats... if our human took up coloring... forget about it! We'd never see her! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey kitties

That's so good! Colouring books sound like fun but it's finding the time to do it because I do have quite a lot of hobbies to keep me occupied :)

My cats also have a hobby really simple ... sleeping !

meowmeowmans said...

That is so cool, CK! Coloring is awesome, and coloring YOU would be even MORE awesome. And yes, the humans here like coloring. :)

Mom loves coloring. She hasn't been able to for months since the great kitchen disaster but is looking forward to getting back to it. Your pages are super!

We have the first BZTAT book and the Brewskie Butt one on order. It's a nice low stress thing to do and stops Mum getting too wound up!

Roby Sweet said...

That is such a cool idea! I love to color every Sunday afternoon when I usually have a little down time, and of course I usually color cats!
