Last week on Throwback Thursday, I posted two fluffy hamsters I had painted for a picture book. They were prints on watercolor paper with hand painting.

The challenge for me was to see if I could keep their cute look once I had rendered them in thick black lines for a coloring sheet. What do you think? Do you like them?

As a child I had an adorable hamster called Bouboulina after a character from the film Zorba the Greek. I am thinking of doing a series of free downloadable coloring sheets with Jilly and Bo. They are siblings and will get into all the usual scraps.

I have done many different free downloadable coloring sheets, which you can find on my site here, here, and here. Some of these projects have writing possibilities and one even has a recipe for a monster cake. Jilly and Bo is intended for younger children. Download your own copy here.
