I didn’t plan to draw a heart. It just happened. I swear.

Sleepovers are cool. But for some reason, once you’re a grown-up, it’s just called “staying with a friend.”
Well, I’m not having it. Because I don’t feel like being a grown-up today.
I drew this during a weekend sleepover with a cool friend (who nearly lost her cats to our ferocious beast.)

I fidget. Can’t sit still. Never could. So whether I’m bored, uncomfortable or excited, you will likely see me squirm.

It’s almost March! Holy cow, where is the time going? I need a few more days in every month.
If you’ve been following my color schemes for the last few months, you’re probably getting into the groove. Here are some brief reminders so I don’t overload you with the same details every month.
These color schemes are suggestions. Experiment. Come up with your own. Fall back on mine if you’re out of inspiration. Change them up a bit if you want. I’ve listed colors in order from “use this the most” to “use this as an accent” from top to bottom. Have fun!
Get The Book
If you haven’t purchased the book yet, it’s not too late! Find it on Amazon for $9.50. Use it purely as a coloring book, make use of the calendar or record your favorite thing from every day as a journal.

I want to know what’s working for you and what isn’t with the coloring book calendar as well as the color schemes. Is the book size practical? Are the calendar day blocks big enough? Is there anything missing you wish were there? Are the color scheme suggestions working for you? Comment below with your thoughts so I can make the next one better.

Because…just because. Go with it.
I started with basic straight lines crossing the page. This is how most lies begin.
Then I filled in all the corners of the wedges. This is the most fun step for some reason, probably because I’m a weirdo.
Now that the corners of your mind…er drawing have gone dark, vary the direction of repeated arcs within the shapes, to cover your lies from every angle. Triangular shapes are easy. The trapezoidal shapes were a bit more challenging. It’s big word Wednesday, btw.
And voila! You have a tangled web of lies, solid for a moment yet so frail as soon as a little pressure is applied.
Don’t be a liar. Liars suck.

Have you found peace in coloring this month? I have. And I’ve certainly needed it. Sheesh.

Below are my color schemes suggestions for the February doodles in my 2017 Weekly Planner Doodle Art Coloring Book (available on Amazon for $9.50). If your colors are more limited than my palette, try blending pencils or simplifying the colors to basics—lavendar becomes purple, burgundy becomes red, etc. The resulting color scheme won’t always be as appealing, but experiment! These aren’t rules. They’re inspiration. ^____^
New! I started listing the colors from “use this the most” to “use this as just an accent” from top to bottom. Again, suggestion. Free your mind. Do your thang. Share it with me. I mean us. Please.
I’ve been using my calendar as a journal. How about you? What are you using yours for?
