The Joy of Colouring

Colouring, at first glance, may seem childish, unimportant, silly even – an act that many of us did when we were young.  But think back, remember why you coloured, and how you felt when you were doing it.

For me, it is a form of communication, a way to gather the ideas from my head and transfer them to paper, creating a visual image that is easily understood.  Colouring is also a form of relaxation.  The act of colouring itself becomes a meditation that relieves stress, relaxes the body and clarifies thought processes. Colouring is something I’ve learnt to love again… and I want you to love it too.

With the myriad of colouring mediums that are available, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and even frustrated.  Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! own Stampin’ Blends alcohol ink markers are easy tools to use!  With a growing colour selection and each colour available in a light and dark shade, available individually or in a combo pack. There’s no guesswork involved, so you can forget about the “how” and focus on the “do”.

Over the next few blog posts I will be sharing with you tips, techniques and projects ideas using Stampin’ Blends.  I hope to lead you down the road to successful (and frustration free) colouring.

In my next post I will be sharing my views on Copic Markers vs Stampin’ Blends.  Read about it HERE
