Adult Coloring, gc Weekly Prompts

What an interesting prompt today from gc. Adult coloring books have been an interest of mine for a couple of years. Linda G Hill does a monthly adult coloring prompt that shows a lot of different talent as well. For Christmas this year my daughter gave me a different version of adult coloring books, an etching book.

The premises is opposite of adding color as you are scraping away black. The page has a design already made and depending on how much of the black you scrape away gives the page your own touch. There are guidelines like the one below but after I did the first one, well, I kinda do my own thing.

The contrast of the black background really makes the colors pop. This next photo is probably one of my favorites so far, as I am partial to butterflies.

Butterflies are special

If you pull just a touch outside the lines of given shape, you get a contrasting color which highlights the shape. I found this by accident and really liked what it did to add depth to the item. I also received new regular adult coloring books to play with and yes the do help pull the stress out of you, at lease they do for me. I keep mine by my bed for nights when the brain will not turn off. I highly recommend them if you haven’t tried them. Plus they are just fun.

And in closing, as I do with all of my post, I remind all of the immeasurable value of kindness. It could be the very spark for someone’s dark day to help them see the day’s beautiful light.

  1. Never nice etching!! My friend just got me an adult coloring book as a relaxing activity.
    I usually color my kid’s workbook pages while they work. It gives me something to do while they fidget and drop their pencils for the 100th time. lol
