I splashed some watercolor paint around on hot press paper the other day…
It reminded me of coloring eggs as a child.
I cut some egg shapes out of my painted paper and decided to add them to my table for Easter brunch. They will make good name plates as you can see in the right photo:
My grandma placed a few candies in paper muffin cups at each person’s table setting… it was such a fun idea that I use it too!
I had a few minutes yesterday to make an Easter sign for my table and color a few more eggs! 😉
Coloring eggs with watercolor on paper is so fun! I encourage you to give it a try!
I started this abstract in my watercolor journal last week with a Micron pen and decided to add watercolor to it:
Then a little collage… I cut three circles from a paper napkin. And added some water soluble crayons on top:
And finished with a few doodles with my black pen:

Wishing you an Eggs-cellent day!

Did you color Easter eggs as a child? I remember dipping them in colors of the rainbow! This doodle I did recently reminded me of painting eggs.
I enjoyed drawing these imaginary flowers and coloring them with Tombow markers and color pencils:
I then drew lines in between my flowers so I could color in the background:
It amazes me how color can change how we see things – even every day things like eggs!
Wishing you a color filled Easter! 🙂
