My Beautiful New Prismacolor Pencils

Standard

I was lucky enough to get a set of 72 Prismas for christmas, here is the first picture i coloured with them.  I have to say that I got them from Amazon, shipping was fast and the price excellent.  I got them for around $70 cheaper than at my local art shop.

I think I am in love ….. they are buttery soft and smooth on the paper, the colours are vibrant and beautiful.  It does sound like I love them hey, colouring has been so much fun since they came into my life.

This picture came out of Mystical Mandalas by Alberta Hutchinson.

Now being back at work after being home and colouring every day is boring, I want to be at home colouring not stuck behind a desk!

Adult Colouring Fun

I was thinking the other day that I must have been colouring for about 4 years now, way before it became popular and all the beautiful colouring books came out.

I now have a great collection of books and pens etc.  Colouring is so much fun and really relaxing.  Great for relieving stress and anxiety.

I have found though that as I am quite vision impaired I have to colour by torch light in order to see the lines which can make it difficult.

The good thing is, because my vision is bad I don’t see the bits I have missed or when I go outside the lines LOL   my colouring always looks perfect to me but to anyone else it probably looks like a 3 year old has done it!

This picture is from Millie Marotta’s Tropical Wonderland book.  It has some awesome pictures and the paper is nice and thick and good quality.

I’m off to do some colouring now…..

I Love My Colouring Book!

I am totally in to my Calm Colouring Book.  I really didn’t realise how huge colouring books for adults were but now that I have found one and started looking on line they are everywhere.  I just ordered a Mandala colouring book so I am excited to see that when it arrives.

I have thoroughly enjoyed colouring, I have found it really relaxing and soothing.  My eyes are bad so sometimes I go outside of the lines a little but that’s ok ☺

I love it so much that I can see myself with loads of books to choose from and a whole heap of pens …. Mmmm now to find something to keep it all in!  I love stationery so don’t need any excuse to buy more colouring pens.  I want to enjoy colouring whilst I can in case I lose my sight and can’t colour anymore.

I have converted some people to colouring too, my partner, my daughter, a co-worker, my GP and my psychologist.  All now have books and are ready to calmly colour.

It’s really relaxing, give it a go!

Adult Colouring Books For Relaxation

Was having a trot around the shops today and saw these colouring Books for adults in kmart.  A5 size $12 each.  Picked these two up and had some fun this evening colouring. It was really relaxing and I enjoyed myself, very therapeutic I reckon.

My doctor mentioned colouring for relaxation last time I saw her so I will tell her about them. She wants one for the surgery for her patients when she takes blood pressure readings to make sure they are relaxed and not stressed. 

Don’t you love my colour combinations in the top photo, my family tells me I have no colour sense LOL. I can’t take credit for the lovely photo of the foxes, the colours go perfectly well together in that one.

I picked up books for my daughter, partner and work colleague so we are all going to be very chilled out and relaxed.
