Picture from Fairies in Wonderland by Marcos Chin
I haven’t updated my blog for a while and here’s why – I have been filming and uploading flip-throughs of all my colouring books and downloading them to YouTube for you to see inside them.
Some, but not all, have pictures in that I have coloured so you can see what pictures in the book can look like. I have even filmed flip-throughs of my completed colouring book; Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion by Amelia Gregory, and my first colouring book Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford, which, although not completed, has a lot of coloured pages. I have a collection that is still growing (I have just won two books and have another three on order at the present time) so there is more to come. I am hoping to colour two or three pictures in a book before I film a flip-through where I can. When I have a quite full book I will film an updated flip-through so you can see the coloured pictures.
At the moment I have a primitive setup with my iphone and a wobbly stand. My iphone is only 16GB and I cant add extra storage (Blooming Apple!) so I am limited to the length of the videos I can film. I am hoping that I will be ale to make more storage space to enable filming of longer videos – then I can do tutorials!
My channel name is just under my name – Hazel Smithies. Here’s a link to my main page –
I also have a playlist which I am adding each flip-through to so you can watch them all in one go if you want called “My colouring book Flipthroughs” https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUZFe5a4VVJ0NNB0PKEv3QIzwG2LW2Bc6
