Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that adult coloring has been a trendy thing for a couple of years now. You can find coloring books for adults everywhere, and they contain all sorts of subject matters. My first book was one of birds and animals that my daughter bought me a year or two ago.
I had a blast getting creative with my colored pencils.
No rules. Just fun.
My latest craze can be credited to twin sister who bought me this book after I coveted the one she had like it, and drooled over her work.
Here are a few images showcasing my own spin on the "fabulous fashions of the 1950s." As you'll see, I wasn't consistent in coloring skin tones; some I did, some I didn't, and the photography isn't great, but I hope the fun comes through.
It may seem as if I have a lot of spare time on my hands, which I don't, but sometimes, in the night hours, when my thoughts run together and the world feels out of control, I find it soothes my mind if I focus on a quiet, singular activity like coloring.
These are but a handful of the images you'll find in this delightful book. Should you be so inclined to try your hand, we found this book at Michael's.
Until next time, sweet friends, do what you love and love what you do.
