About This Class


Would you like to be able to create your own hand drawn coloring pages the easy way?

Whether you love to color or you want to tap into the popular trend of adult coloring books, I will take you step-by-step through the process of creating hand drawn coloring book pages.

I recently created my own adult coloring book pages for my book, "Broken Crayons Still Color" and now want to share what I learned with you.

There is so much you can do once you have your designs. You can use them personally to color or to give them to family and friends. Or you can create coloring pages to sell in books or on other products.

By the end of this class, you will have your very own coloring book page to use in whatever way you want.

When you enroll in this class you will get my resources list which includes all the supplies you need, websites to find free public domain images, and also how to create script lettering in a Word document if you are not confident in your hand lettering yet.

What You Will Need:


Pencil and eraser
