10 year old Deirdre had her Mom contact us last week asking if she would be allowed to contribute a new free colouring page to our site. (Her Mom said that she waited with bated breath to hear back from us. :) ) Obviously we LOVED this idea so we are excited to share Deirdre’s new free printable page with you today!
My teenage daughter loves to write! She spends every spare moment buried inside her little notebook creating character sketches, writing scenes and working out new story scenarios. She’s a good little writer and I’m always encouraging her to continue. The other day I came across this little graphic with 10 writing tips for teens. We both found these tips quite useful so we wanted to share – hope you are all having a lovely week. :)
Happy Valentine’s Day!!! To celebrate I’ve drawn you a new Dragon Colouring page!! (A rather ‘hearty’ version haha) Enjoy! :) You can check out my Mom’s and Hayden’s colouring books HEREand my other posts/drawing tutorials/colouring pages HERE
Whimsical Publishing is SOOOOOO excited to announce one of the two new colouring books that we plan to release in 2014 >>> WHIMSICAL’S WORLD OF FAIRIES!
Merry, magical and sometimes mischievous; from Disney’s iconic Tinker Bell to fairy books, dolls and costumes, these tiny, winged fantasies we call fairy, fay, sprite and brownie continue to capture our hearts and dare us to dream.
The book will include a collection of beautifully hand-crafted drawings that are sure to inspire both the young and young-at-heart. Talented artists Micheline Ryckman and Hayden Wolf will also include a step-by-step guide for budding artists and fairy enthusiasts alike to create and colour their own tiny, winged, fairy visions.
To whet your appetite more we have included a sneak peek at one of the colouring pages from this upcoming book and to inspire you even further Micheline spent some time colouring it.
Stay tuned for the release date announcement and for details about the secound book we are planning this year!
I was rather spoiled this Christmas – my loving husband splurged and bought me a beautiful new Wacom drawing tablet for my computer. I finally had the chance to sit down and play around with it yesterday. I’m certainly not an expert yet but I do plan to use this lovely gift for many future Whimsical books.
For my first try at the tablet I couldn’t resist working on a page from one of our colouring books. (We are never too old to colour! ;) )
