Stay Calm and Color

I remember coloring as a kid and how it would make feel like an artist and how I would allow my imagination to flow freely using an array of colors from the crayon box.
Last year, I noticed there were coloring books for adults on the market and I wanted to try one.
These books come with different intricate designs such as this one called "Coloring Flower Mandalas by Wendy Piersall.
Kuddos to Wendy, who hand drew these designs they are certainly detailed complex and beautiful.

These types of coloring books are supposed to be calming and relaxing.
My emotions, since I hadn't colored in years, was excitement at first, waiting to use my vast number of sharpened colored pencils to bring Wendy's designs into a colorful adventure.

I admit at first it was calming and brought back those memories as a kid but then it also became a bit frustrating because I felt I had to finish and didn't have enough time to do so.
Looking at all these patterns are overwhelming and I had to decide if I should color each detailing differently, uniquely, separately or just parade my colored pencil across the page.

Well, I decided to color one part at a time and just relax and say to myself "so what if I don't finish the page in one day, I'll put it down and in a couple of days come back to it. And that's exactly what I have been doing.

I also let my 10 yr old daughter share in on the fun even though it was momma's special coloring book. She too was over whelmed with all the designs but she finally chose a page and brought forth a beautiful colorful master piece.
I finally finished a page and my daughter is working on another one already but of course she has more time on her hands.

Here are some of the beautiful patterns included in this 30 page book and you can find it on Ulysses Press .







My baby girl's coloring page:)


And the one she is working on, as you can see she is becoming more detailed in her coloring as well.


The page that felt like forever for me to finish. LOL


And Voila even my daughter had a part in coloring one butterfly;)


I'm glad I own this book and I can go to it whenever I want without rush and I can stay calm and color.
