Coloring – For Grown Ups

April 11, 2015

NPR recently ran a story about the recent popularity of coloring books for adults. I have to say this resonated with me, as I’ve spend the last few months playing around with coloring. It started with some pens from Stampin’ Up!…the moment I opened up those pens and started using them to color in some stamps, I was hooked. I quickly turned to Pinterest and found some other things to color. Here are a few examples of both stamps and printables that I have used to create Project Life cards.

This is a printable that I found on Doodle Art Alley – a great website that has plenty of free printable quotes that are perfect for coloring. I just set the print settings so that the image fit a 4×6 Project Life size card.

This bunny rabbit stamp is from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Critters set that is perfect for coloring. I added in a few other stamps and Project Life cards from the Little Moments collection to create this Easter Egg Hunt layout.

And finally, I also found some great coloring resources on Homestead Bound for adults experiencing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Make sure to check these out if there are any adults in your life who could benefit from this kind of craft.

Coloring can be a lot of fun, and I have to say that I was very surprised at home much I enjoy this. It’s a great relaxing craft…and even if you don’t consider yourself to be very creative, it’s easy to do some coloring!
