Whoo hoo! Coloring is fun! Crayola’s nifty 96 pak crayon box has colors that I wouldn’t have ever thought of…although…come to think of it, I am colorblind. lol
The “Sublime Stitching-Monkey Love” monkeys got their coats.
I followed the tutorial from Giggleface Studios. I outlined the areas then cross hatched some colors for filling in the spaces.
Here are the browns for the monkeys.
Here are the greens for the vines and leaves.
I added white for some highlights…
and purple for some shadows… (I learned, when painting, to mix adjacent colors to make the shadow, or use purple as a shadow instead of black. I thought I’d try it here and see what happens.)
There is purple under the ‘boy’s’ chin and under the rump of the ‘girl’ sitting on the vine. I added a little in the center of each leaf too.
Now, they are waiting for the iron. I almost hate to put them under the iron. I am ironing them today. Will they survive the melt-fest?! I’m so scared. What will they look like tomorrow?
Want to try it out? Get your crayons…get some fabric…get coloring. You life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun! 😉
