What Is Adult Coloring?
What is adult coloring you may ask? It’s a fun and a creative way to decompress from the stress of your day. Seriously, if you haven’t tried it yet, then you probably should. It’s a fun hobby, and once you start you’ll find it difficult to put your colored pencils and markers down at the end of the day.
Coloring has been with most of us since childhood, but many of us as adults have discovered the joy this hobby has to offer once again.
This all seems to have started in 2011, when a British publisher asked Johanna Basford, to draw a children’s coloring book. Basford suggested that she should draw an adult coloring book instead, and she managed to convince the publisher. The publisher ordered an initial print run for “Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book” of thirteen thousand copies, and since it’s release, Secret Garden has sold over two million copies worldwide.
Hello, welcome to Coloring For Fun! My name is Susan Spring and I’m from Cape Coral, Florida. I’m a wife and mother who loves to color. My coloring journey started as a way to help me deal with my stress-filled job. This blog is a family project and my husband Steve and my daughter Sarah are both actively involved in everything we do at Coloring For Fun.
My husband Steve suggested that I start a blog to help others get started on their coloring journey. So we decided to create this site to help you get started coloring. If you’re new to coloring, we will help you select the books and supplies that you need to get started. If you are an experienced colorist, we will provide reviews of new books, interviews with authors, and free items to make coloring more fun.
Anyway, we established Coloring For Fun to help you do the same. This blog is dedicated to helping those who are new, as well as those who are not-so-new navigate through the immense world that is coloring. Our goal is to show you what works for us in the hope that it will work for you too.
Why include an about you section in our about us page? Well, that’s because this blog is all about helping you have more fun coloring. That’s why it’s called Coloring For Fun!
We honestly believe that helping others is the only way to live our lives meaningfully. Our goal is to provide you with ideas and content that help you learn and have fun. We try to respond to every comment and Tweet that we get, and aim to develop friendships with as many of our readers as possible.
