Hello everyone!

I have been making pictures this week using bright colours as bright colours make me smile!. I have been doing scribble drawings. To do this you take a pencil or black felt tip and do a big scribble, making sure you leave lots of gaps. Then you colour each gap with a different colour or pattern. It makes a really pretty picture  and colouring helps me feel relaxed and calm.

 

Challenge:

Make your own scribble picture using as many colours as you can find.

 

Extra challenge:

Try and create a picture where the same colour is never in two spaces that are touching.

 

Good luck smiley
