Colouring books were always a favourite past time of mine as a child. I still have old colouring books where each completed creation is signed off with my artist signature, my age and the date of completion.
Until recently, staying in the lines was an activity reserved for children. Lately, there has been a boom in the number of adults who are getting their own fix of colouring escapism and as a result adult colouring books have grown massively in popularity. Colouring has been proven to destress adults and is a great way to take 5 minutes just for you - and relax.
Here at Home byKirsty, we’ve just received a big bundle of our own goodies for colourists of all ages that will give you a chance to lose yourself in mindful moments of colouring bliss. Perfect for Christmas gifts, commutes, rainy days and spontaneous creative outbursts. Here are our favourites:
When We Were Wild - Llun a Lliw
This colouring book features page after page of Llun a Lliw's typically weird and wonderful line drawings. You are given plenty of space to colour, paint or even collage on each image so you can get as creative as you like!
Rolling, jumping, roaring, hiding - the children in this book have the ability to transport you to their wildest imagination and limitless play.
With perforated edges, you can rip out your completed designs and frame them or maybe give them as gifts.
Available at Home byKirsty - £10
AnimalZ - Llun a Lliw
Think you know your ABC? This pocket sized colouring book will bring a whole new life to your alphabet.
With a Coatadium in the Cupboard and a Porpoise in a Pinny, Llun a Lliw has an alternative animal image for each letter of the alphabet and they are all waiting for you to bring them to life with colour.
This book is sure to put a smile on anyone's face and had us chuckling when it arrived in store last week.
Narwhal in a Nightie? Yes please!
Available at Home byKirsty - £12
Pethau Gwyllt / Gone Wild - Llun a Lliw
Llun a Lliw strike again - this time with an amazing book of postcards featuring whimsical images from her books "And Then We Were Gone" and "When We Were Wild".
With space for a stamp and address, what better way to show off your masterpieces than by sending them to a loved one.
A creative alternative to birthday or thank you cards.
