Free Printable Coloring Calendar with BONUS tutorial on how to create shadows with colored pencils

Do you see that slight 3D effect? I used a very simple method with a black coloring pencil to draw shadows around each section of the coloring page pattern to make it stand out and create some depth. I’ve put together a short video showing you how I did it and how you can make your coloring pages look great with this super easy shadow technique.

      Hi Crystal, feel free to tell your friends about the calendar. I’d prefer you not pass the actual files around but instead let them know where to get it for themselves… I hope you enjoy yours!

    Had a lot of fun coloring!
