Escapist Coloring Club Prompt

What fun each month Linda gives us when some of us love all of these coloring books, calendars or desk tops. I have gotten hooked lately with a different form of these books called etches. The pages have a form already on the sheet but then they cover it in black and then you scrape off as much of the black as you want. You get to be creative in a different way. Below are sample pages so you can see what I am talking about if you are not familiar with these, as I had not seen them either before I received a book at Christmas.

You decide how much to scrape off to get you picture

I posted one of my favorites just the other day for gc Weekly Prompts if you want to see it. It has butterflies. The one I am posting was also one I liked a lot but I dropped the tool and it made a scratch across it. I want not going to post it because of that issue but it has pretty colors on it as well so I am posting it.

my idea

Now that I have done a few, I have a little  better idea of how the “stretch” the norm. You can see from the sample page that is the suggestion they made for this sheet and how I did it differently. Good or bad the artist is always in charge.

Other things people are in charge of is how they treat others around us. So I encourage you all to be kind. This world can be cruel and thoughtless at times so those that can must remember that one day we may really need kindness to be shared with us. So share where you can.

  1. Wow – it’s the first time for me to see those kinds of color books. They do look like fun and rewarding too. I adore your line ‘good or bad, the artist is in charge’! PS – love your coloring, you do beautiful work as an artist!

  2. So pretty! I can see they would all turn out different as to how you scrape off parts of the page. I have some similar little books, and I think they are called scratch art. They’re pretty fun to do. 🙂
