The Creative Colouring Book For Adults

About a month ago, I wrote a blog post about colouring in for adults (you can read it here if you haven't seen it yet). At the end of that post, I mentioned that I had just bought the "Kreatiewe Inkleurboek vir Grootmense" (Creative Colouring Book for Adults).


This book has a nice mixture of geometric and graphic designs, and has both really simple and really intricate pages. The paper is nice and thick, I've only noticed a little bit of colour showing through when using kokis. The designs are printed back-to-back, which is the only things I'm not a fan of (I would prefer single-sided).

Here are a few of the pages I've been working on recently. I'm still loving the bright, bold colours of kokis, but will be playing around with pencil crayons next.


 

And here are a few more pages to give you an idea of what the book is like. (You can click on an image to enlarge it.)

 


So - what are your thoughts on colouring-in for adults? Are you also hooked on this stress-relieving activity or do you not understand the hype?

  1. I have the same one, but in English! I colour with colouring pencils, but I love how bold your pictures are. I might have to get some felt tips! I actually bought a new colouring book on the weekend, called Millie Marotta's Animal Kingdom, which I think you would like. It's full of pretty, intricate animal pictures to colour in. I'm planning to blog about it later this week. xx
