A memory I have from when I was young is of a deep despair when my colouring books were all coloured in and there were no more pages left to fill. Big, fat books they were as I recall. And, I was definitely one of those stay inside the lines colourists! So, you'd think I would be even a little excited about this recent adult colouring craze. There are books galore of almost every topic out there to instil creativity, or find your inner child, or whatever. Supposedly they are to induce calm and relaxation. Yeah, I also know people who knit for relaxation and truly, I cannot think of anything more frustrating than knitting. Except maybe colouring these new colouring books. Though, admittedly, I haven't really tried.
Maybe it's because they are so detail oriented. And tiny. Colouring postcards are also popular and this is one I received today from Sofiya. Perhaps I should buy myself some of the special pens/pencils you need and give it another try? I do like Matryoska dolls...
Interestingly, I also received these two cards - the same one - this past week.
How cool to see how differently each one has been coloured.
