This Tossed Buds illustration was originally drawn in my square moleskine sketchbook/journal a few months back, while I was on a trip:
It's taken me some time to turn it into a colouring page as I had to scan it in, clean it up, then create a pattern that would fit onto an A4 size page. But it's finally done ...
I wasn't too sure of the colours I'd picked so tried experimenting with them a bit before shading -- as you can see from the very first photo -- and decided that they're not too bad after all. If I'm not happy once it's done, I'll just print another sheet out and start again, which is why I love printables ... I can continue printing and playing till I feel that it's just right.
If you like Tossed Buds and would like to colour it in yourself, it's now up for sale, as a pdf printable that you can download immediately, at my Floating Lemons Etsy store: Printable Tossed Buds Colouring Page. You can print it out as many times as you like, and add colours to bring it to life. Have fun! Cheers.
