flowers (free adult coloring page)

The last of my catch-up posts of floral adult coloring pages – this one is a bit more whimsical (more like a doodle) than many of my illustrations. Sometimes I really like creating patterns in the backgrounds, thinking it would be fun to add a lot of different colours.

flowers (free adult coloring page)

This free, downloadable adult coloring page is something new that I’m offering – note cards that you can print, colour and fold yourself to create your own, handmade greeting and note cards.

The first one I’m offering here is a Christmas card I actually created for my family this past Christmas. I printed the card on different colours of card stock (pink, blue, yellow, white, cream) and then coloured in each card in a unique way. (You can see the finished cards in the Instagram post below.)

To make the cards:

  • Save the PDF file below, or open it in your computer browser.
  • Print the PDF. You’ll get the best results if you use letter-sized (8 1/2″ x 11″) card stock or cover stock, select “portrait” orientation for this particular card, and select the print size as 100%.
  • Colour the drawing however you would like (crayons, pencil crayons and markers work well).
  • Fold the page in half with the drawing on the outside, and then fold it in half again to make the finished card.
  • To mail or gift the card, use an invitation-sized envelope, available at most stationery or office supply stores.

flowers (free adult coloring page)

This drawing is another oldie from late 2016 that got postponed until now because of Christmas and winter. Flowers are one of my favourite things to draw, and I did a lot of floral drawings when I first started making adult coloring pages. This coloring page was inspired by this doodle that I did in one of my little sketchbooks (below).

wildflowers (free adult coloring page)

This is one of the first adult coloring pages I created in late 2016; I haven’t posted it until now because I wanted to upload some seasonal Christmas and winter drawings in December and early January. I drew the original in blue ink (see it on my original Instagram post, below), but if you can print it in greyscale if you want black and white. The drawing was based on a photograph I found of wildflowers.

sun flower (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-sun-001

It’s a sun. It’s a flower. It’s a sunflower. It’s all of the above.

This drawing was inspired by this doodle (shown below from my Instagram feed) that I did in one of my art journals. It’s one of my favourite doodles, and I knew right away that I wanted to make an adult coloring page of the same image. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

I’ve been fascinated by sun and moon images for a long time, and even have a whole Pinterest board devoted to the subject. I keep going back to look at those images for future inspiration.

mistletoe (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-christmas-mistletoe-001

This is another drawing that was inspired by illustrator Margaret Berg. I love her stuff so much.

When I was younger my parents used to put up a mistletoe ornament every year, in kitchen doorway, and Dad liked to kiss women under it. This year when Mom was putting up the Christmas decorations she was going to skip the mistletoe, and I asked her if we could put it up after all. I don’t know who will kiss under it, but I like seeing it there.

poinsettia (free adult coloring page)

free-adult-coloring-page-poinsettia-001

This hand-drawn adult coloring page started out as a sketch in one of my small travel sketchbooks (below). I was just fooling around, and really liked how the hatch marks made the poinsettia leaves really pop.

I did a cleaner version in black ballpoint ink for the free coloring page. I uploaded a picture of the drawing in progress to Instagram (below), and decided I liked how the one flower looked without the hatching, so I didn’t entirely fill in the second flower.

flowers (free adult coloring page)

Ever since I started drawing adult coloring pages, I’ve been wanting to create some tutorials for beginners to adult coloring, and so I’ve been drawing some simple pages that beginners can use over and over again to work on their techniques. This is one of them. It was fun to draw – I started out tracing a small, circular object over and over again (I generally don’t use a pencil pre-drawing for most of my adult coloring pages), a technique I learned from The Bloggess after she posted photos of this zentangle drawing that she was working on.

Do I think that using pencil is cheating? No. I think you should do whatever works. Most of the time I just prefer a really loose, wonky kind of feel to my adult coloring pages, so I don’t bother with sketching in pencil guidelines.
