Hi friends! I am so pleased that more and more adults are coloring! I am even more glad that the adult coloring trend is pulling in the most non-crafty among us because I think when people see the value of creating they will be more inclined to delve into other crafts and wouldn’t it be awesome if everyone spent time everyday making something fun and worthwhile? Last year I reviewed a series of coloring books from Color-It. The thing I liked was that the pages were printed on thick, artist quality paper and when you colored on them your mediums looked radiant. Often on coloring books the paper doesn’t grab the pigment or show off the colors. I used both permanent markers and colored pencils and they both worked great!
I was contacted by the company Color It the other day and they told me that they have a Kickstarter going to fund their next project, an adult coloring book that is designed to be colored by adults and then given to, or read to, their children when it is done. I think something like this could be a treasured keepsake as well as an answer to the question “What do I do with this page after it’s colored?” You can find out more about their new coloring book here. You can also see some of the sample pages to decide if the book is right for you. I really like the octopus one! Color-It is a wonderful company and I wish them much success. Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow I will be back with a video tutorial, until then happy crafting!
