Losing Myself in Coloring

In case you haven't noticed lately I've been coloring A LOT!    And I absolutely love it. It's so enjoyable and relaxing.  In a way it's mindless but it still requires a decent amount of concentration and focus.  I wanted to show you some of my favorite books and pages lately....


This first one is sooooo neat! It's the Look Up Coloring Book and inside are such unique and intricate pages to color!



There are some really silly and simple pages which are nice when I don't have much time and don't want to figure out a color scheme.





And then there are unique almost dream-like pages.  I love coloring those types!







The pictures are all inspired by new perspectives on things.  I love the unique patterns mixed in with realistic everyday items or objects. 






On days where I'm feeling fancy I get REALLY INTO coloring in The Little Mermaid Coloring Book (based on the Hans Christian Andersen story). I've always loved mermaids and I enjoy coloring people so this is the best of both worlds.








I love giving each of the mermaid sisters a different look.







This book is one of the most beautiful I've colored in.  It has awesome fish and seashells to color and I love how it tells the story on each page.   I get really into the scales when I color in this book, as you can see!



This one is the Ultimate Coloring Classic Pinups book and I am in love with this new way of adding color.   I wasn't sure what to do at first but quickly realized using two shades of the same color makes it look AMAZING!



It seriously looks like the painting!!!! I can't believe how much I enjoy this book.  It's really cool because I've always loved pinup girls and now I get to color them in!







See how I did more shading in that one?   It's super easy and fun.  

If you need some more gift ideas for people on your list and you know they enjoy coloring - definitely check these coloring books out! I'll share more of my colored pages as I fill them in!
