Adult colouring in books - Calming or just childish?

09:28

Now, I'm aware that this colouring book craze has been going on for a while now and I'm a tiny bit late joining in on the fun. I could never justify buying myself one of the books but as me and my sister skipped around Asda, I saw one on the shelf and decided to give it ago - especially as lately I've need something to take my mind off of things.



I've only started colouring in the images recently, however I am finding it slightly relaxing. But not as much as everyone seems to be making out. I find it more frustrating than anything but that may well be because of the book I chose. The images are quite intricate and when you're using fine felt tip pens, they're not the easiest images to colour in.

I think if I chose a book that had more standard images in it rather than intricate ones, then I would enjoy it a lot more. Or if I had the money to spend on decent pens. However I do absolutely love seeing the image come together when I've finished colouring it in - even if it isn't always quite as I imagined in to be.



Have you tried these colouring in books?
Do you find them relaxing or more frustrating?
