The Backstory

Rainbows are a huge source of inspiration within my household, so I wasn’t surprised that her card idea was Rainbow themed. However, I was unprepared for why she wanted to create this card for her Daddy’s Birthday:

” My Daddy is like a Rainbow. He’s happy, funny, very silly and sometimes can be cross, and I love everything about him. He’s just like the song from Trolls [ True Colours] and he’s never scared to be himself”

Heartwarming stuff right?

Printable Rainbow ‘I Love your True Colours’ Card: Materials 

White Stock Card
Paint / Watercolours / Pens or Pencils
Embellishments – Buttons/Sequins
PVA Glue
Scissors

And Cut!

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 2: For best results, use 4 strips of paper for each bauble.

Level the cut up strips of paper and fold in half to create a central crease.

This will be used as a marker for the next step!

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 3: Take a split pin and pierce it through each piece of paper via the crease made in Step 2.

Spread the pieces of paper to form an even ‘snowflake shape’ as shown above.

Arty Crafty Kids | Christmas Craft for Kids | Colour and Create Christmas Paper Baubles #christmasornament #christmascraft #christmasbauble #papercraft

Step 4: Starting from the bottom of the pile, join the two ends of the paper strip.

Step 5: Continue the process of adjoining the paper ends, layering the paper on top of the previous.

TIP: A glue stick is perfect for this process. It will not leave the paper soggy or heavy and is plenty ‘sticky’ enough to hold the bauble together!

Step 6: Secure a piece of thread to the head of the split pin and finish off with a few threaded beads!

Free Cat Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Colorin Pages | Free Cat Coloring Page for Adults

September’s coloring tribe theme was cat coloring pages. I am a self-confessed cat person, with crazy cat lady traits and simply adore all things cat related, so this month I was super excited to be challenged to creating a free cat coloring page. However, my adoration for cats made this challenge extremely challenging, for I wanted to capture their personality, playfulness, elegance, a sense of independence and of course all the beautiful patterns and textures that can be found within luscious furry coats.

I’m sure you will agree, I probably put myself under far too much pressure. Subsequently, and I’m not afraid to admit it, I enlisted the help of a very clever artist to assist with translating the image I had in my head onto paper and I simply adore the end result!

Sharpen the pencils, as I have another free coloring page for you to color! Now I have to admit, the ‘cactus’ theme for this months challenge had me scratching my head a little – I had no idea where to go with it! So you can imagine my surprise that when the pencil hit the paper, this cactus coloring page turned out to be the easiest and most free flowing design I’ve ever drawn.

I loved experimenting with continuous doodles to create fun and irregular patterns – it’s a technique i’ll look forward to using again!

Colouring has become one of my favorite past-times and when you’re downloading one of our free printables, I would recommend using quality paper. It will enhance the vibrancy of the colors and your pencils will be easier to blend, especially if you decide to use a water-soluble pencil or fancy exploring Inktense ink pencils.

To create depth and shade, my weapon of choice is a basic blendable pencil and you don’t need to be anything more than a novice to use them!

It’s all about sitting down, relaxing and allowing yourself to enjoy the flow of coloring without worrying about technical aspects.

Moana Inspired Turtle Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Free Coloring Page for Adults and Kids | Moana Inspired Free Turtle Coloring Page

Today’s free Moana Inspired Turtle Coloring Page is inspired by the amazing Polynesian tattoo art found throughout the film. In pacific cultures, tattoo’s are deeply meaningful and are unique to each person. They tell a story and serve as a reminder to ones values.

My kids adore the film and have seen it far too many times. The tattoo art intrigued my eldest daughter (7) and has been creating ‘story telling’ art ever since. With this in mind, how could I not get her involved with this months ‘Turtle’ challenge!

Our coloring page is a representation of a sea turtles journey to the sea, with a large prominent lotus flower to symbolise its peace loving and gentle nature.  If you have seen the film, you will notice that the art is uneven, lacks symmetry and full of hand drawn charm – PERFECT,  so I hope you enjoy our quirky looking turtle and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with my darling girl on this project.

Detailed Butterfly Coloring Page

Arty Crafty Kids | Free Coloring Page | Detailed Butterfly Coloring Page

This month I’ve joined a group of incredibly talented coloring enthusiasts to create a new butterfly themed coloring page as part of a monthly challenge, and oh my goodness you’re in for a treat! As well as my own detailed butterfly coloring page, you will have five more stunning butterfly designs at the bottom of this post to download for FREE!

I loved creating this butterfly coloring page, adding an abstract and slightly obscure element that I hope you will enjoy!

My kids love to critique my coloring pages and sometimes, they can by brutal. In this instance, my six-year old looked over my shoulder as I doodled and asserted that my sketch didn’t look anything like a butterfly! I simply smiled and carried on. After a moments quiet, she added “it doesn’t look like any butterfly I’ve ever seen, but it’s actually quite beautiful and I would love to see a butterfly like that in real life…”

I’ll take that as her seal of approval.

What do you think?

Sunflower Coloring Page

Sunflower Coloring Page

There’s something about sunflowers that makes me happy. I think they make everyone happy and when sunflower season arrives, there’s nothing more exciting for kids (and adults!) than to watch their flowers grow tall and bloom proudly. It’s a flower I associate with beauty and strength, and with one particular friend in mind, whose adoration for sunflowers surpasses my own, it represents notions of friendship too.

Filled with all these romantic notions, I couldn’t be happier with how this sunflower coloring page turned out.

With the thick black lines and detailed patterns, there’s a 60’s retro quality to the design that I hope you will enjoy!
