A few months ago I was quite sick and had to take a month off work. (I’m all better now thankfully, in case you’re wondering 🙂 )
So – what to do when all you can do all day is lie around? Colouring in of course!
I had a few pads of water colour paper lying around (have I mentioned I love $2 dollar shops and always have some craft supplies lying around?!?) I used my StayzOn inkpad and stamped pages and pages and pages of stamps and gradually coloured them all in with my Stampin’ Write Markers.
I find colouring in sooooo therapeutic. You don’t have to think too much, you feel like you’re being creative even if you’re not doing too much, and there is something so calming about choosing colours and then gently colouring in the image. Maybe it has something to do with reverting to childhood as well?
Anyway … when I said I coloured in pages and pages, I wasn’t exaggerating! I literally coloured in for days at a time because I didn’t have the energy to do anything else (I couldn’t even concentrate on television). 3 watercolour pads worth!
Here are just some of the pages I coloured in.
Lately I’ve been figuring out what to do with all of this stuff – make cards of course! Stay tuned and I’ll show you how I turned these sheets into cards.
