Today is National Coloring Book Day! I always had coloring books as a child and never lost my love of coloring. Apparently lots of adults feel the same as adult coloring books are quite popular. In fact, I got one for my birthday from two of my favorite people on earth…they obviously know me quite well as they couldn’t have picked a more perfect gift for me. Here’s what I got:
And to color it in, I got:
Thank you Bob & Julie! I am going to spend countless hours enjoying this book with its intricate coloring and activities. What a great gift for anyone who likes to craft! Actually, Julie got one as a gift and I ooh’ed and aah’ed about it…no subtlety there.
I also wanted to share with you a link on how to create your own coloring page. It’s on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page as well. I tried my hand at it just to check out the editing program they recommended. They warned against picking pictures without a lot of contrast and I can see, after playing with it, why that is so important. But I’m sharing the original picture and the coloring book page anyway…just because.
If you try making a coloring book page or if you enter the contest, please come back and share with me. It would make my day!
