Landscape /// Garden Colour Me In

hey

Lately i got back into drawing some landscapes, plants and nature things. It is very calming to me and it was a great way to start the year slow and stressless. I like to combine the shapes and colours i already have in my collection and arrange them into something new. It is like meditating to me. Especially coloring them is very calming to me. And if it’s calming to me, I thought it might also have the same effect on other people. So just before i started to colour my drawing i made some shadows and scanned it for a black and white version for YOU to colour in. Just print it out! When you have an ink printer, it’s better to work with colored pencils because felt tips might smear with the print. If you have a laser printer you can actually colour it in with felt tip pens, markers and even watercolour. If you do not have a laser printer but want to use one of these it’s probably also cheap to get it printed in your local copy shop. I’d be very excited to see your colored version on twitter or instagram, let me know : )

Storytime Part 10

Unfortunately the guests did not bring their children, so there is no playmate for Maus. The adults chat, but the little Maus is bored. He has done all his chores and helped with the preparations and it’s still not dark outside, so he is allowed to go out and play in the snow.

Leider ist kein Spielpartner für die kleine Maus mitgekommen und während sich die Gäste mit Mama und Papa Maus unterhalten wird es der kleinen Maus etwas langweilig. Da sie ihre Aufgaben erledigt hatte und es draußen noch ein bisschen hell war durfte sie noch raus gehen um im Schnee zu spielen.

Storytime Part 08

Family Maus has finished all the preparations right on time when the first guests arrive. Hot chocolate is served. Maus provides everyone with a cup.

Rechtzeitig als Familie Maus mit all den Vorbereitungen fertig ist, kommen auch schon die ersten Gäste. Zur Begrüßung wird heiße Schokolade gereicht. Maus schnappt sich ein Tablett mit den Tassen und geht von Gast zu Gast.
