|The cover of Wildscapes by Stephanie Holm|
With so much to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to start. I started with the Tassie devil and then coloured in the page of honey possums before going back to the Tassie devil's page to colour the owl and scenery.
There are frogs (yay! I love frogs!), birds, a thorny devil, Boyd's forest dragon, platypus, feathertail glider, a Tasmanian devil and so much more - plus a wide variation of beautiful Aussie flowers and trees including yakka, gum trees and fungi.
I've coloured using regular pencils but you can use watercolours in this book without worrying about the water wrinkling the page. Its nice sturdy smooth paper. The wrinkles will smooth out on their own, but if you need them flattened more, leave it somewhere under a phone book. The weight of the book will soon smooth out the page again.
I've nearly finished the frog's page - it has a pink tree trunk, blue-green leaves, green lizard, red toadstools and so far, a white background. I'm thinking a mix of orange and yellow for that but I'll see what happens when I get back to it, probably will end up being pale blue-grey - coloured using the "scribble on a scrap of paper and smooth over the page" technique.

Hope you're all enjoying colouring and creating art as often as you can. The more you do, the better your heart and mind feel :)
Happy Creative Day!
