Having company over for your Fourth of July celebration? Needing a little hands-on project for the kiddos... or maybe even for the grown-up girls? Here's a little Stars and Stripes Coloring Page that will hopefully be a added blessing to your family and friends get together!
(Available free through July 5th)
This was a fun design to color but I must admit... I had to think it through because of using such a limited color selection.
Red... PC923 Scarlet Lake
Browns... PC944 Terra Cotta (for shading the red and in her hair) and PC945 Sienna Brown
Yellows... FC9201-108 Dark Cadmium and PC1034 Goldenrod
Flesh... PC997 Beige
Blues... FC9201-149 Bluish Turquoise and FC9201-246 Prussian Blue
But seriously... the color palette is simple so play with whatever you have handy... including crayons... or print it on watercolor paper and play with paints! Just have fun!!
I would love to see photos of your Stars and Stripes coloring... either your finished piece or a photo of the kids or girls around the table coloring... so please take a pic and tag it with #starsandstripescoloring and @karladornacher so I can check out your coloring fun!
I've been sharing a bit on FB and IG already this week about how much 4th of July means to me... not only only as a holiday but it always reminds of how thankful I am for how Jesus has set me free to be the woman He designed me to be... and it's also my youngest granddaughter's birthday! So... I just knew I needed to stop and create a Bible Journaling page around this theme!
I don't normally use stickers for my Bible Journalling but I must admit it was kinda fun... especially because I was playing with my newest digital collection "Set Free"... designed to celebrate the freedom we have living here in the USA and... even more importantly... the freedom we have in Christ.
Jesus tells us, as His disciples, that we will know the truth and the truth will set us free... and I know that personally in so many areas of my own life... and I'm guessing so do you! There is such a joy in knowing that we can live a life "set free" from the lies of the past... the lies of the enemy... and walk in the freedom Christ died to give us!
So I printed this little collection on sticker paper... cut out the pieces and placed them on my page... so easy! I chose the pinwheel simply because it reminds me of being a little girl and twirling around watching the pinwheel spin in the wind... a memory of being care-FREE and happy in the moment... a similar feeling to being care-FREE and happy in Jesus today!!
You can check out this new "Set Free" Collection in my shop here
Ahhh... and modern technology... it can be such a challenge and yet so much fun! Sometimes I think I'm too old to jump into another new high tech adventure but.. here it is... my very first attempt at sharing a video... what do you think? I made it to inspire you and make you smile... and I would love your feedback... do it again or not? Color pencil? Bible Journaling? Hand-Lettering? Drawing?
Oh yes... just one more thing... starting tomorrow everything in my Etsy Shop will be 25% OFF for FOUR days!! Yay!
Happy Fourth of July my friends!
Celebrate... Give Thanks... and Party on!! xoxo
