Don’t throw out that leftover dye!

Easter eggs

This weekend we had great fun decorating Easter eggs with the grandkids.  Ever on the lookout for art supplies, I decided to try using the leftover dye as watercolor paints on Sunday’s Scripture doodle.


As always, I began with an ink drawing of the Scripture, this week from Philippians 2:6-8, a good reflection on the servant nature of our Lord, Jesus.  Feel free to download this black and white page and print for your own coloring fun and meditation!

Phil 2.6-8

Then I added a light color wash with splashes and drips of the dye on the watercolor page sprayed with water..

Then I darkened the pretty pastel colors OUTSIDE of the words:

How appropriate for this week’s Scripture Doodle to be painted with Easter egg dye!

And the winner of last week’s Somerset Apprentice Giveaway Celebration?
