New Coloring Book! Pretty Creepy: BOO-tiful Designs for Coloring

Halloween lovers, this coloring book is for you!  I’ve created some designs that are pretty creepy—but more pretty than creepy. The coloring pages feature my signature florals combined with spooky elements like creepy crawlies, pumpkins, skulls, and Halloween type designs. The black background adds an extra Halloween touch that will make your coloring pop. The designs are also provided with lines only on a plain white background to double the coloring fun. 

This coloring book features:

  • 15 different Halloween-themed designs provided with both a black and plain white background, for a total of 30 coloring pages

  • Unique, hand-drawn illustrations featuring spooky imagery combined with pretty florals

  • One-sided pages in the print book

Available both as printed book and digital e-book. Links below.

Free Downloads! - Digital Paper Samples

Besides releasing a coloring book, I’ve also been busy recently stocking up my Etsy shop with some fun digital goods. It’s taken me awhile to get in the groove and figure out what exactly I want to offer all of you.

As an artist, I often find myself in limbo between the physical, hands-on art stuff—pen, pencil, paint, crafts—and the digital world of iPads, vectors, fonts, screens, and software. Each side has different aspects that appeal to me as it pertains to creating art. As a result, my work has become a hybrid of physical and digital media.

I’m sure there a lot of you out there who feel similarly. You love to use technology, but also still like the look and quality of art created by hand.

My Etsy products have evolved to fill that space. My goal is to create a line of artfully designed digital goods that embody that handmade quality that I love. For example, some of my latest listings have been inspired by felt crafts, embroidery, paint marbling, and natural paper textures.

I’d love to offer you all a FREE sampling of some of my digital products from Etsy. Please enjoy these fun papers and a piece of floral clip art I’ve made recently for some of my sets. Click the link below to download the high resolution files from Google Drive. Print them out or use them in your digital layouts, whether for card-making, scrapbooking, or other paper crafts. And I’d love for you to visit my Etsy shop HERE as well, of course!

Enjoy!

Flowers All Around: Beautiful Floral Mandalas for Coloring

Hello!

I am pleased to announce that my new coloring book Flowers All Around is available now on Amazon!

This book features FIFTY floral mandala designs. The pages are one-sided so they are easier to work with. Those who follow my art on social media might be aware that I love to draw and paint floral mandalas, which is how I came up with the idea for the theme of the book. Here are a few highlights and glimpses of my own coloring work:

For all you digital artists out there who love to draw in Photoshop, Procreate, or other graphics programs, I have also released a digital clip art pack in my Etsy shop. The set includes all of the same 50 designs found in the printed book, provided as PNG files with black lines and a transparent background. They can be imported as their own layer so that you can color on a layer below. You can alternatively print them out and color as many copies as you like using your favorite traditional media. The files are high resolution (300 dpi) at 8.5x8.5 inches. Click on the image below to go to the Etsy listing.

I hope you all enjoy coloring these. Feel free to share your creations on social media and tag me (@nicolejonessturk) and use the hashtag #flowersallaroundcoloring. I’d love to see what you come up with!

Sincerely,
Nicole

Free Floral Valentine 2019 Printable

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the series of mini floral paintings I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks. If you haven’t seen them, here is the full set…

They were all done with acrylic paint and are the size of a trading card (2.5 x 3.5 inches). I made them this size because I thought they would be fun to give them away as little Valentine cards, similar to the ones I would give out at my elementary school class parties. I’m a sucker for just about any holiday—I love them! As a young girl, I was always excited to celebrate in school. For Valentine’s Day, I remember decorating a cute little box each year and going around to drop off cards to my classmates. Back then, mine probably had Disney princesses or something like that. These hand-painted ones will be a little more special, haha, and I’ll be sending them to some family and friends.

I didn’t want to keep the fun all to myself, though. I created some printable cards from my paintings to share with you all! Access the file from Google Drive at THIS LINK or click on either image below.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Nicole
