I don’t think I was aware of the new craze of colouring for adults until a friend received a colouring book and pencils for her birthday. Since then I have seen the books everywhere in the magazine and or book stores. I have now seen them at airports, in Vancouver, London and Istanbul. I didn’t know it had gone global. It is just not one or two mags but about a dozen available on a dozen topics and complexity. I was never a fan of colouring as a child, just could not stay in the lines, I blame a wandering eye.
It is meant to be a way of unwinding, meditation and or an outlet for creativity. A whole book was too intimidating but a small postcard book, in a Turkey museum , peaked my interest. I did one small design when I was on a boat for a week. Can’t imagine I will do another until I am on another trip.
I unwind with my sewing, cross stitich and other handicrafts. Come to think of it, that is my creative and meditative outlet as well.
