You Will Love Colouring in For Adults!

Colouring in for adults is a MAJOR craze at the moment. A quick look on Amazon shows that 50% of the books in the top 10 are….you guessed it colouring in for adult books!

The first half of the book features designs for you to colour in (a lot more intricate than the ones you had as a child!) The back of the book features pages for you to doodle on. So can this really help me de-stress? Time to find out!

Instead, I was now thinking should I colour that bit in purple or green! It completely cleared my mind! I got lost in the colouring in and it was all I could focus on – proper escapism from day to day life.

I also loved the result… the pages look so pretty now! I can see why it’s such a craze and it’s one I will be continuing with!

Here’s one I’ve started:
