Altenew Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes!)

by Erum Tasneem

Altenew Watercolor Book

Hi there everyone! Welcome to Altenew's Color Therapy Blog Hop! Who doesn't like to color? We all do! That's why Altenew is bringing you this very special blog hop! Altenew is the first stop on the hop and I, Erum, am the lucky one hosting this hop today. I thought, what a better way to start a hop than a coloring session?! For this, I will be using one of the pages from the Exotic Blooms Watercoloring Book.

Altenew Watercolor Book

Color Therapy Project Inspiration

For my coloring session, I am using one of the no-line pages. I start by adding water and then gradually adding pigment. This will be more interesting to watch and learn. :)

Altenew Watercolor Book

At first, I wasn't going to add a lot of detail to the flowers, but during the coloring sessions, you never know what will happen as I am so lost in my coloring, that I just keep on coloring and having fun.

Thanks for sharing this and I hope you feel better soon. I’ve been coloring in my Altenew Water Coloring Book and find your tips and techniques so helpful. I shared pages from my book with a friend who is practicing her watercolor techniques and I’ve been thinking I should order the Exotic Blooms Water Color Book as well. I colored one of the outlined pages in the Water Color Book with colored pencils and then the matching page in watercolor, creating two different but pretty looks! I’m recovering from hip replacement surgery and have limited access to my craft area and this book has allowed me to keep on crafting! Lol!
