Free Printable Coloring Page for Moms – Think of the Mess

After a fun one-liner I wrote and posted on my Facebook page went viral, I realized how it’s in my power to inspire fellow moms. I decided to create this free printable coloring page for moms around that quote, as part of the monthly Coloring Tribe challenge, on the theme of quote coloring pages.

My mission with Moms & Crafters is to boost.

I like to boost my fellow moms’ days. I like to let you know that it’s okay if things get a bit… messy.

It’s all part of the blessing.

 

Don’t let the outer looks deceive you! We all have that mess – it’s all just a package deal called motherhood.

And one day, those little ones will grow up, taking the mess with them (hopefully!!) And with it will go all the giggles and cuddles and moments.

Until they return with the grandkids… and their fairy dust.

Putting things into perspective can really help, which is why I hung this quite up in my home.

When you are naturally a neat, orderly person, the mess can really get to you.

Having a reminder can help boost your mood, making  you a happier mom.

 

That being said, I know that my fellow moms do need a break. I also know that you don’t have time. So I made this one pretty simple to color and I’m going to encourage you to TREAT yourself. To TAKE THAT BREAK. It’s okay if the laundry waits till tomorrow…

Just in case you really can’t make that time, I decided to offer the printable color version for a few dollars.

 

 

 

How I colored this free printable coloring page for moms:

 

I’ve been wanting to add a quality set of alcohol markers to my stash for ages. I think if you have only two things it should be soft core pencils and alcohol markers.

Markers are great for when you’re short on time, as they don’t require layering and lots of work to put down pressure. But with the right set of markers you can get seamless blends and rich, beautiful color, which is what I want when I color.

I was debating between the Copics (which are notoriously expensive), the Chameleon color tone markers (expensive as well, but I figured I need fewer shades), or the Prismacolor Premier dual tip markers (which aren’t cheap – but cost a lot less than the above two options.) I decided to go with the Prismas because I love their pencils, it’s the most risk-free option, I prefer more colors, with more juice, so I get more life out of it. I have not been disappointed.

I went for two packs: the 24 pack in the zip case and the portrait pack (which is much cheaper from Blick art supplies than Amazon where I usually shop). I chose the portrait pack even though I don’t color a lot of skin because when I do, it’s hard to get multicultural tones. I also figured that it comes with nice beiges and pastels – and plenty of neutrals. Neutrals are great for doing a “base shading layer” regardless of what color you put on top.

I was not disappointed.

I absolutely love these markers and for the first time since my sunflower coloring page, I actually colored the entire thing!

Not only that, but I went back and printed my original coffee coloring pages to color again…

 

I was wondering if I needed a blender marker but for now it looks like I’m good without. The portrait pack comes with an almost clear one which works well as  a blender. You can see that the pale tones in that pack allow me to get a beautiful background.

 

 

I loved the result so much so that I decided to offer it as an art print – digitally in my Etsy shop and in print in my Society6 shop.

I played around with the layering and the coloring a little bit and recorded this video – I hope you enjoy!
