Zen Feather Girl Colouring In Printout ~ Crafty Crusaders

 Have you seen that you can get colouring books for adults now, it is a great way to relax and unwind.
I thought I would have a go of drawing a colouring in page for you. This is so much fun.
I first drew an outline of my girl and design in pencil and then went over the lines with the Black Mepxy marker and a fine black sharpie pen. Then rub out the pencil lines.
I have done it already for you here if you would like to print out this Zen Feather Girl and colour one in for your self. This is a great way of practicing shading on faces with different mediums.

You can download your Printout HERE

I have used Pebeo Studio Aquarelle watercolour paints to colour her in and added a few more details like the eyelashes with a pencil.

If you are printing the printout on an inkjet printer and you are using watercolours you have to be careful of the ink running. The image below was printed on watercolour paper on an inkjet printer.

I hope you enjoy getting back to your childhood and having some colouring in fun!

I know I did!

Have an awesome day 🙂
