Create Your More Of Own Colorful Lace OrnamentsMirroring the very popular mandala coloring patterns, lace patterns and vintage lace designs are often both complex and beautiful.Coloring is an activity which has been associated for a long time with kids and it has been accepted that, as we reach maturity, we put away our crayons and turn our attention to more grown-up pursuits. However, in recent years we have witnessed this wisdom being rejected and coloring for grown-ups has become a widespread and growing activity.But why has coloring for grown-ups become so popular? There are many explanations for the explosion in adult coloring, but here are just a few...Coloring Reduces Stress And AnxietyPsychiatrists have known for a long time that coloring relaxes the fear center of the brain and permits your mind to get some rest. Indeed the founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung, gave his patients mandalas to color over one hundred years ago. In the hectic world we inhabit today the stress reducing properties of coloring are perhaps more valuable than they have ever been.Coloring Trains Your Brain To FocusStaying within the lines as you color a simple black and white line drawing requires focus and, while you are concentrating on this stress-free and relaxing activity, you can forget about your worries. Coloring is a mental exercise which lets you set aside everything for the time you spend doing it, and this is very important in our stressful world.Coloring Helps In The Development Of Fine Motor Skills And VisionColoring forces the two sides of the brain to interact and involves both the use of logic (used to color forms) and creativity (as we mix and match colors). In turn, this brings the areas of the brain concerned with fine motor skills and vision into play, and helps in keeping these active and in developing them further. It is this aspect of coloring which is being increasingly seen as particularly valuable for older individuals, as many people believe that it can delay, or even prevent, the onset of dementia.Coloring Gives You The Chance To Be SocialAlthough you may feel that coloring should be a purely solo activity, its growing popularity is quickly turning it into a social one. Friends, families, colleagues and others are getting together to enjoy something to eat and drink and the opportunity to socialize, through their shared interest in coloring. Indeed, this is a perfect excuse for getting together, as coloring needs only minimal concentration and can be done easily in a group setting.Coloring Lets You Express YourselfThere are no rules when it comes to coloring and your coloring book is just that - your coloring book. If you mistakenly make the dog's hind leg green because you thought that it was part of the grass, who cares? Should you decide to make the sky yellow, what does it matter? You can be as creative and experimental as you like because this is your project, and yours alone. When it comes to choosing colors don't forget that the British-based, but American-born, artist James Whistler once remarked, ""Mauve is just pink trying to be purple.""You may of course already be a follower of adult coloring, in which case you will know and appreciate its value. This may however be a new project for you and one that you are looking at for any one of several different reasons. If this is something new for you then I urge you to give it a try. It is no accident that so many people are excited about the world of adult coloring, so join in and start to enjoy the benefits for yourself today.
