Coloring books… They aren’t just for kids anymore

National-Color-Day-October-221-e1444940960846Happy National Color Day!

It’s National Color Day!  Actually, I had no idea, just stumbled across that one.  But I love color and who doesn’t like an excuse to celebrate.  Maybe a coincidence, but I also came across a new publication coming out by Stampington & Company, The Coloring Studio! Apparently coloring books for adults is growing in popularity.  I’ll admit, I didn’t quite get it when my daughter picked up a couple coloring books a little while back…2015-10-22 08.05.18-1 (1)

But after spending an chilly afternoon with my 4-year-old nephew & tween-niece coloring (can you guess which one is mine), I think maybe they’re actually onto 2015-10-03 16.54.53 (1)something here.

And so to celebrate National Color Day, what the heck, I ordered my very own coloring book … The Coloring Studio 🙂

Wait! I almost forgot, while we’re on the subject of color, I also came across this post from SLR Lounge on Color Theory and photography.  I keep a color wheel handy.  It can really help from choosing a texture to changing a hue… another handy tool to add to your photographic toolbox.

Til next time,
Maria

  1. Hi Marie,

    My wife is into the Adult Coloring Book Craze. Over the past month she has spent a gazillion dollars…….well maybe $20 0r 30 dollars……..on coloring books and coloring pencils. She finds it very relaxing. So I guess in addition to my prints all over the house we will now have some of her coloring creativity. Maybe we can give some of them as Christmas gifts….then again maybe not!
