30 Day Colouring Challenge — Day 3

I joined Tumblr and Instagram recently and I have been discovering all sort of interesting people and accounts. One of them was The Daily Marker. It is run by a crafter/artist named Kathy. She is hosting a 30 Day Colouring Challenge. She is encouraging you to colour for just 5 or 10 minutes a day. I think its a really great idea because colouring reduces stress. I’ve decided to give the challenge a try. We are on Day 3 already.

For this challenge, I decided to dig out some old colouring books. I can’t do an entire art journal page in 5 to 10 minutes a day, so I needed something simpler. So far, I have ended up colouring for longer, but I worry less about time when I am not comitting myself to a whole art journal spread.

The challenge is a great idea. Now, pardon the silliness of my entry. 😀

I have this strange little colouring book from Claire Fountaine. It is meant for kids, but whatever, I like it. There are two figures on each page and you have to design their look and colour them in. Super girly, but fun. Here is the book and what a blank page looks like.

This is my entry for today, Day 3, done with good old fashioned pencil crayon. Yay Steampunk!

    I LOVE coloring books! I have probably half a dozen at home right now. They’re amazing for stress relief and for when my nieces come to visit. 🙂
