WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT COLORING?
Coloring helps you relax, wind down, focus on what you’re coloring and how you’re doing it. You can let go of everything when you’re coloring because your focus is on staying inside the lines (or not), the colors you’re using, the techniques used.
For some, coloring is as relaxing as meditation.
As you get older, your joints stiffen and become painful to use. Coloring helps keep your hands and fingers mobile because you have to hold a pen or pencil and make short movements as you color.
HOW I STARTED MY BUSINESS.
I bought a coloring book for adults and didn’t think much of the designs. I thought I could do better myself. Luckily, a friend had got interested in creating coloring designs and she showed me how to do it. I had some training and am totally hooked on it.
I have published two coloring books. The first, “Patterns for Relaxation, Book 1” is available here, and the second, “Patterns for Relaxation, Book 2”, is available here. I’m working on the next two books. Yes, they will have more imaginative titles!
NOT ONLY COLORING.
I’m a “get as much use out of it as you can” kind of girl, so I looked for other ways to use coloring patterns.
It’s a tree, branches full of bunches of leaves. There’s got to be a technical term for that.
I’m The Coloring Coach so the leaves couldn’t simply be green; they had to be all different and bright colors.
In greyscale, it’s still a pleasant image to color.
So, it could be a line art picture, greyscale – both for coloring, but either could be used as a logo in their “natural” state.
Then I found other ways to use photo’s. More on that later.
