FREE Colouring Sheet to download

Life may seem to be a little scary at the moment, with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) doing the rounds. We’re all having to be careful and to protect each other from unnecessary risk. It saddens me to think of those at higher risk, with autoimmune conditions, existing respiratory conditions and the elderly, along with their families and friends who will surely be worried and anxious about their safety. It’s a global pandemic and things will be very different for a while.

My thoughts are with all those who are and will be affected by it.

Now that schools have closed and many adults are either looking after their youngsters, or having to stay indoors, they will need to find ways of entertaining themselves. I imagine people will be taking up hobbies, binge watching programmes they haven’t seen yet and even doing things around the house!

I decided to produce a colouring in sheet for children and actually anyone who is young at heart and enjoys colouring books. All you need to do is right-click on on the last image in this post and choose to save to a folder on your computer.

I’d love to see photographs of your completed image on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter – use the hashtag #colouringwithemmajayne or my instagram handle, @emmajayne_designs. I’d love to share them on my social media and see the wonderful colours you decide to use.

You can colour the Pegasus Unicorn colouring in sheet either with coloured materials or transfer it to your ipad or Android tablet and add colour that way! You’ll need an appropriate app to do it on your tablet, if you haven’t already got one.

 

 

To download the image below, right-click on it and choose Save Image As/Save Target As. Then, choose a folder to save it to on your computer.

You can then either print it out to colour it in, or send it to your tablet (you’ll need a suitable painting app for that).

The downloaded image will be A4 size.

Printable image - A4, 300dpi

This is a large download of around 3MB, so it may take a minute or so to downlaod, depending on your connection speed.

I hope you enjoy coloring in your Pegasus Unicorn and I very much look forward to seeing your efforts on social media

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’d like to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is a quick drawing I did this afternoon for the special occasion.

It’s funny looking back from when I was much younger and when I had a ‘boyfriend’ (relating to my teenage years). It was a real treat getting dressed up (wearing my best perfume) and going for a romantic meal in one of our favourite restaurants. These days, my husband and I tend to buy each other a card and a small token gift!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

For this design, I was very much inspired by the hearts seen in Folk Art. Apparently, the Sacred Heart is one of the most common motifs in religious folk art created in Mexico. The idea is that the physical heart of Jesus is a symbol of his divine love for humanity (Zinnia Folk Arts).

I loved the idea of combining a Folk Art heart with flowers and butterflies, mainly to highlight ‘love’ but to also give it a feeling of beauty and that spring will soon be here. I’ve read that the first Valentine’s Day was back in 496, initially originating from a Roman festival called Lupercalia. This festival was held in the middle of February, which was officially the start of their springtime, hence the flowers and butterflies.

The colours I’ve used are rich, especially the red, green and plum tones.  I wouldn’t say I’m an expert on Folk Art, but from what I’ve seen, bold colours are used and they’re usually highly decorative too. To soften the boldness, they all sit on a calming pale blue background.
