The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Colouring Pages
« on: July 18, 2010, 06:37:24 AM »
Colouring pages are easy to trace and can be used to create paper piecing designs, as they do not have to many pieces.
Colouring pages can also be used for digital stamps and some images can be used for rhinestone designs.
http://www.supercoloring.com/ hundreds of images.
http://www.coloringbookfun.com/ popular movie cartoon characters.
http://www.coloringbookfun.com/ a huge selection to choose from.
http://www.coloring-pages-kids.com/ a very large selection.
http://www.hellokids.com/r_3/coloring/ over 8,000 images.
http://www.educationalcoloringpages.com/ includes Disney and lots of popular cartoon characters.
The images on the following site are vector pdf images and do not need tracing.

Do you need help with tracing?
Kay at Clever Someday  has a comprehensive list of sites with tutorials on tracing bitmaps http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/images-to-svg/.

Kay also shows how easy it is to use the paintbucket tool instead of tracing a design.http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2010/04/09/bucket-basics-video/ and http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2009/06/13/tracing-a-simple-template-paint-bucket-mini-tutorial/

What an awesome list of coloring pages. I am not an artsy kind of person, so anything I can trace is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for sharing this, supercoloring is my favorite from that list, I used several of their images for rhinestone designs, the simplest ones of course. Their outlines coloring pages is a good starting point for anyone interested.
