Hopefully, by now you have a copy of my coloring book, and you’re diving right in!
Or maybe your copy is laying on your desk, crisp and untouched because you’re a little overwhelmed.
Today I want to give you a few tips to make you feel more confident when you start coloring your first page, or maybe you’re just looking for some tips to take your artwork to the next level!
As with anything in life, unfortunately, we have to practice at them to get to where we want to be. If you’re not happy with the way your pages are looking, just keep trying! Relax. Smile. :)
