WOYWW 1st July. 2015

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

I thought I'd share with you these colouring in pages I have got hooked on.  I have heard them called Zen colouring, but basically they are colouring for adults, although I'm sure children could do them as well.

Some I have used a mixture of glitter pens and felt tips, but have also used just glitter pens on a few of the images.  The second image has both sorts of pens.

There will be more next WOYWW. 

This one below has a combination of glitter pens and felt tips.

Just felt tips.

Happy WOYWW.


  1. Wow don't they all love great Sue . Happy woyww Jill #10

  2. Wow Sue, that colouring is fantastic...really psychedelic! I've looked at those colouring books too, but I'm not sure I'd enjoy it. Zentangling nearly drove me insane :-). Not enough patience, you see :-). Lol
    Hugs, LLJ 7 xx

  3. I am very impressed. Those look very detailed and are so bright and cheerful.

  4. These look lovely Sue. We all enjoy colouring in don't we. It reminds me of Christmas as a child. My friend was colouring one of these at our craft club on Monday morning. What lovely photos of your dogs. My Amber and Maggy have sadly crossed the rainbow bridge too. Barb xx ~36

  5. What great colors and designs! Looks like a lot of coloring, but results are wonderful.
    Yes, Sue, that is the Blue Angels flying over Niagara Falls, love that shot!


  6. Jill, Thank you.

    LLJ, I thought I'd give it a go. I am not very good at staying in the lines:)

    April, Thank you. The downside is they use a lot of ink.

    Barb, Thank you.

    I agree about my girls, but I could be biased. Your two fur babies will have plenty of friends to play with at The Bridge, until you go and fetch them.

    Sue, Thank you.

    I saw our Red Arrows fly over the other week.

  7. Aren't they great, those colouring books for adults. I have bought two, one in Holland and one in the UK. I started doing some but realised I haven't really got a lot of coloured pencils or felt pens for that matter, so I might have to go to the local poundshop and buy a childrens set and see how I get on.
    Yours look absolutely smashing! Well done you!
    Have a great week,

  8. They are great - I love colouring in - get lots of practise with my grandchildren :-) x

  9. Oh wow! These turned out really pretty! I'd love to try that!

  10. Wow they really are gorgeous!

  11. Lisca, Thank you. I bought a set of 10 pens that looked like the Sharpie ones, but a cheap version at £1, but they ran out very quickly. I put a couple of sheets of paper underneath the one I am colouring, otherwise the ink can bleed through to the next image.

    Anne, Thank you.

    houndstooth, Thanks.

    Virginia, Thank you.

  12. are you using the pages as like backgrounds for something else ( a card?) now that they are colored? These are all just beautiful :) ~Stacy #51

  13. Stacy, I had planned on using them as background papers as it seems a shame to just throw them away.

  14. Sue, these are all just so beautiful. This would be terrific therapy while vegging in front of tv. I bought a compass to try Zen again. I doodled my last one, but my centers are crooked and it shows. May go ahead & share it anyway! TFS & Hugs. on a side note, while the DD was visiting, she let us know that Ossie (the 15 yr old) has left us. She made the decision last week and the vet who had been visiting to do his arthritis therapy handled things. She had not let us know or we would have gone down to be there. Her Dad asked about him, and she said briefly that Ossie was no more. He told me not to ask about him, but next day while we were getting manicures, I told her that I was proud of her for making the right decision, that she had given him a wonderful life and he loved her so much. I KNOW it was a hard thing for her to do and took courage. Just FYI.

  15. MaryH, Thank you.

    Well done your daughter for taking the final step to help Ossie go to The Bridge. It is always hard, but as we love them so much we have to do it.
