Colouring for relaxation and creativity

I am a bit late to the adult colouring book party but now I’m here, I’m wondering what took me so long! One of my intentions for 2016 is to disconnect from technology more and spend more time indulging in more creative and more relaxing pursuits.

I had a pattern colouring book when I was little that I loved, full of geometric patterns so that was something I wanted when looking for a book. I purchased the Indian Summer colouring book from Amazon, for it’s intricate bold patterns and mandalas…I knew I would enjoy this! As the patterns feature some very tiny details, I opted for some fine liner pens to add colour to my new book.

I’m so glad I purchased this – the patterns are stunning and my mind wanders as I decide what colour to choose next for the patterns. It’s a great relaxation tool and I find hours pass as I colour in. I’m looking forward to adding to my colouring book collection so I can enjoy different themes…the Liberty books look amazing and I’m still dreaming of geometric patterns too!

The colouring book I’m using below is Really RELAXING Colouring Book 6: Indian Summer: A Jewelled Journey through Indian Pattern and Colour: Volume 6 (Really RELAXING Colouring Books) and I’m filling it in with Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 334 SB20 Tips Desktop Box – Assorted Colours (Pack of 20)

    As a teacher I often sir down with my kids on a rainy lunch break and colour with them. We’ve been drawing Zentangle inspired patterns for each other and then swapping to colour them in. It’s great because we all relax and chat which we don’t often have/make time for in school.
