The Psalms in Color by Crystal Cleveland

The Psalms in Color coloring book is a really cute coloring book. I first saw this book about a year ago. I was on line looking for something I could purchase for my grandsons to keep them occupied during church. They were past the age of most coloring books and I wanted something spiritual and yet whimsy to draw them in to want to color it. This book was it!! Austin immediately found a picture with a zentangled deer, he couldn't wait to color it!  When we came home from church he asked us to explain Psalms 42:1 to him (that was the verse with the deer)

William found a hot air balloon to color he couldn't wait to tell me his Bible verse Psalms 71:14. As for me, I will always have hope. William turned to me in church and said  "If I was in a hot air balloon, I would hope it stay up!"



There's also several pictures that appealed to me as well. I like to use color pencils and water color pencils, they are easy for me to take when I sit in doctors offices or have to wait in car line for kids after school. I didn't color before I received this book. Pick yourself one up today if you like to color or start a new hobby.



Here's a picture that I colored with watercolor pencils and a gold gel pen. I have  frame I'm putting this in and hanging on my wall. 




I cut this out using my brother scan -n- cut

I also cut out the center and added gold foil card

stock and popped the center up


I added a paper doily to the back of the card and popped up the flowers. I next added an acetate paper with gold foil dots on it behind the doily and placed it all on a piece of black card stock added a fancy frame.

Watch for my next blog where I show you a technique using your coloring book pages. Until then, Happy Crafting!

If you take four of your colored pages to a office supply store. They can shrink them down to a 4 x6 size and get four on one page. Then you can take them and copy them and you have the right size to use on cards. They make beautiful cards that are unique



This is beautiful – thank you for sharing….
