could have my own time to unwind.
home. Sometimes I like to listen to music or have the TV on in the
background. Outside coloring on a patio being surrounded by nature would be
inspires me. I usually brainstorm how I want it to look and will write down
some ideas before I start. Sometimes I like to have a color palette picked
out and other times I just wing it as I go when choosing colors. Then
within the picture I start coloring in the area that interests me the most.
When I get stuck or can’t decide on a color or what to color next I usually
take a break and think it out before I continue on.
happy and lets me take time for myself. It’s also fun to share the hobby
with my family. I’ll often ask their opinions on a color combo that I’m
deciding between. My children will sometimes color along all using the same
picture. My whole family likes to use my art supplies, Most times I’ll
share too! 😉
coloring technique would be not to give up. Keep practicing and practicing.
Maybe starting off focusing on smaller pictures might help or even
experimenting with different mediums. Whatever you do don’t compare your
work to others. Everyone has their own style, that’s what makes us all
unique and keeps art interesting.
love the themes of all of the books I feel like this book has a lot of
variety, which I enjoy when coloring.

OCTOBER FAN OF THE MONTH WINNER: MARY ENGLES
When did you first pick up a coloring book?
I started adult coloring around 2015.
Describe your perfect coloring atmosphere.
Sitting on my couch with my tea or coffee relaxing with a movie to listen to while I color.
Tell us about your creative process when you get ready to color.
When I pick a picture it's normally one that I can see colored already and I have the colors picked out in my mind. But I sometimes just like to pick colors as I go!
How has coloring changed or added to your life?
It helps tremendously with stressful everyday life. It's fun for me and helps pass the time.
What advice would you give someone who isn't confident about their coloring technique?
Don't stress! Everyone colors differently and it will come out beautiful and unique to you! Sometimes putting to much thought into your picture ruins the experience for you. Just go with what your feeling.
What's your favorite ColorIt book?
The Native American Spirit illustrated by Terbit Basuki
What title would you like to see in the future?
Hmm I'm gonna say a whole book of Mermaids.
