I’m sure you’ve all heard about the craze that is adult colouring books over the recent months. I picked up my first one on Saturday and was so excited to dive right in and give it a go.
After not having a particularly good week with my anxiety and depression it was right up my street. I’d heard people say that it relieves the feelings and gives you an uplifting boost. On Sunday I sat down with my colouring pencils and felt tips and and just coloured away.
I’m not artistically gifted when drawing my own things so this was the next best thing in adapting myself creatively. I found it very relaxing and calm during the session and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with their issues of mental health.
I had a hard time choosing which one to purchase as I loved the Enchanted Forest and Secret Garden books and I was torn between not getting them but I’m pleased I decided to purchase this one. The pictures are absolutely stunning and it also gives you the opportunity to draw. An absolute no no for me! 🙂
Currently, my writing stands at 32K which is going to be very problematic as I’m only on Chapter Nine. It’s the first draft that I’ve ever went way out of the word count within the first several chapters.
Anyway, here’s the finished product and I’ll be back with more fun soon.
Have a good week!
