Earth Without Art

Most, if not, all of you must have come across the famous quote "The Earth without Art is just Eh", while browsing through artsy content on social media sites like Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook. Well, the reason for the background is that Mahe Zehra, has actually included this quote as a coloring page in her adult coloring book called "The Book of Happiness". The fun part is that Craft Circus is actually hosting a coloring challenge where this is one of the designs that you can download for free, color, and submit as an entry.

So after a long stressful month, I finally had this weekend to myself, and decided to color the page using my awesome collection of Distress Stains!

So before I delve into what I have done here, let me show you the original page.
So you can see that I, did not just color the page but also added some details to it. My reasoning for transforming it the way I did was based on the fact that the Quote talks about ART, and not just color. For me adding artsy elements to it was an integral part of the process, so other than Distress Stains, I've used stencils, markers, and stamps.

The splatters on the original artwork, set the tone for the splattered colors blending into one another.
