They are meant to be therapeutic and a way to relax. Which means that you don't need to be an artist to enjoy them. They can be great for women and men alike. Old and young. The good news is that there are tons of different styles to choose from. Books with very detailed and intricate patterns to books that are easier and have drawings or pictures that you can complete when you only have a quick 15 minutes to yourself. You don't have to use crayons, you can class it up a little and make it more "adult" by using color pencils, water colors, gel pens, etc. Get creative and have fun!
If you don't already know - besides my love of books, I'm also a paper girl. What's that you ask? It's a total love of paper planners and journals. I've noticed several of ladies in this community recently getting into coloring books as well. I found a few fun videos featuring coloring books, one sharing techniques that can make your coloring look even more pretty. As always, anything stress relieving is supposed to be fun, so I tried not to think to hard about the task at hand while I was coloring. I actually tried not to think about too much of anything so that I could really get into it. Overall - I like the trend.
