Gel Pen Flowers

Aloha there,

This is a day of several firsts. It's the first time I am using a coloring book, gel pens to color the whole page, and creating a short video for an Amazon review of the pens. Whew, what a day!

And it's November!!!!

The Coloring Book was marked down on Simon Says Stamp a while back, so I caved and bought it. In the center is a page of flowers. The blank pages on the left side have an affirmation or positive thought for the day. The pages are 7 X 4-1/4 inches each so you can easily cut pages to fit smaller cards. This one I left whole, and on a single layer, not a card.

This will be entered into Day #1 of Kathy Racoosin's "30 Day Coloring" challenge. You can enter on Instagram, her blog, or join her new 30-day Coloring Challenge Group on Facebook to upload your photos. They have many, many giveaways at the end of the month. The whole idea behind her monthly coloring challenges is to make us take a short, daily (if possible) break - 10, 15 maybe 20 minutes, to give our minds and souls a chance to clear and wind down. You do NOT have to make a card or even complete the coloring project each day (even though it might feel weird not to lol). I hope you will play along! Here is a link:

Coloring Book: "Color Calm" by Valentina Harper,, a floral/dotty page
"Top Quality Gel Pens, pack of 60" on Amazon (I got them for around $14 and now they are down to just over $10!) plain, and metallic colors
Perfect Pearls Black Onyx (little black dots on the silver areas)
Dazzle Glitter by SU, sprinkled over wet dots of 3D Crystal Lacquer (very sparkly)
Matted onto white, then black cardstock

Mahalo for visiting!!!! 
Wishing you a beautiful week, filled with creativity ♥


  1. Beautifully colored. I love those colors too.

  2. Rosie - Your coloring page is gorgeous. I had already signed up for Kathys 30 days. I am disabled so there might be some days that I cannot color, but we shall see


  3. Oh wow! That's fantastic and a lot of work! Love the colors, so bright and beautiful!

  4. Oh my goodness, you are awesome. It's really hard to keep going with all that detail. I have started so many pictures and gotten bored. I love all your beautiful colors here, well done!!!!

  5. What a lot of work! I love the bright green, you got good results with the gel pens! I have only used them to color smaller areas.

  6. Gorgeous! colouring is therapeutic, isn't it? Love the texture of the Pefefect Pearls, too.


Your kind comments really encourage me a TON! Mahalo nui loa!
