Let your Stress Melt away with these coloring books!
Barrons Educational Series has developed some fantastic Adult Coloring books. The Color Yourself Calm book features pictures that are sure to aid you in unwinding. The Just Add Color Flowers and Nature book is full of vibrate pictures with 120 pull-out illustrations.
I love that art of coloring is making a huge comeback. There are some fashion styles like pegged pants and even verbal phrases ‘as if’ that I am glad are well in the past! However, I don’t think I ever grew out of coloring. I have so many wonderful memories of coloring with my friends, mom and even grandma. Now, years later, using that artistic side of my brain really seems to tone down the logical side and help me relax. Like a working time machine, when I color, I am transported back to a simpler time.
If coloring isn’t enough, Barrons has developed a Color Me Calm book to ensure a relaxing time. Each page has a unique full color mandala image and a black a white image for you to color. Inspirational quotes line each image aiding in helping you focus your mind to calming thoughts. I loved the full-color images. Some times it is even too much to think about which color to use and if it will look the best. Now, with the full color images, I can copy them directly without worrying about messing it up. Sometimes I get new inspiration from the existing color scheme and create a new one from the color image. Either way, it is so nice to unwind with beautiful mandalas and inspiring quotes.
In the second book, Just add color Flowers and Nature,I started coloring a beautiful rose. These images are breathtaking in black and white and I am sure they are even more beautiful when completed. I really enjoyed the varying images in this book. Some pages are packed full of images and others are simpler and require less time. This is perfect for me because some days I do not have a lot of time to focus on coloring and if I want to finish it I am able to. Each page is unique and beautiful and you will not be disappointed with it at all. Do you like to color?
