Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

A Coloring Studio Project using a page from Volume III
When Stampington was looking for coloring book pages for Vol. 3 of the Coloring Studio, I thought of a page I had done about a year ago that combined Stampotique rubber stamped images with Zentangle designs. Here is the uncolored page and how I colored it in with Brushos and Memento markers.
While I might not have been thrilled with the end results of the colored in page, I could see opportunities to use it in the future. I used it to create the colorful and funky top of a small storage box.
Color in a page out of the Coloring Studio coloring book.
Photocopy the colored in page onto heavy cardstock. Choose a part of the page that measures the
same dimensions as the top of the box and cut it to fit the top of the painted
box. Save the scraps to make cards.
Permanent inks to distress edges of paper panel chosen to fit the top
Cardboard box, Chalkboard Paint (black), strong
adhesive such as: E6000, Idea-o-logy metal feet
1.Choose a card board box, new or recycled
and paint it inside and out with black Chalkboard paint. When dry attach
metal feet to the bottom of box with a strong adhesive and begin working on the
lid. Allow paint to dry completely.
2.Cut a piece of background paper, this one
is from a coloring book page that has been colored and photocopied onto heavy
cardstock and is a “master board”.
3. Adhere panel to a piece of card board cardstock, glue with a
strong adhesive to the box. The inside
of the box can be further decorated.
So tell me...what do you do with your coloring book pages when you're done? I'd love to hear about it.
