Having fun with color

Although I am not much of an artist, I do love to do crafts, to create things from interesting objects or work with leaves and natural products such as rope etc. It's something that is completely subjective and hard to pin down exactly. I regularly browse through online sites that do this kind of stuff and found a place called The Doll Place that has Coloring Pages section where artists can upload pen and ink drawings and color them online. Users can view colored drawings made by others as well.

Their main target audience is teenage girls but there are lots of options for other kids as well. Once you upload your drawing, which needs to have a completely closed outline so that it can be filled, you can fill them with any color from the palette, just by clicking on it. Once complete, this colored drawing can be shared with friends and family. If you'd like to save the picture online, all you need to do is to set up a free account with them and that's it. The process is extremely simple and it's a fun thing for young girls to do to develop their skills as graphic artists.
