     Everyone has been jumping on the adult coloring bandwagon lately, so I gave it a try myself. It has been proven to be as therapeutic as meditation. With three kids running around on Christmas break, I need all the relaxation I can get. 
     Not really sure if coloring is your thing? There are a ton of places you can print out beautiful pages for you to try adult coloring for free. These pages are a great way to try out adult coloring to see if you love the new fad as much as everyone else does. 
      When you first begin, you will have to determine if you like crayons, color pencils, markers, or pens. For me, I love to use color pencils. They give you the ability to create a diverse colors on the pages. I also like markers when I am coloring thicker coloring pages. They make the pictures pop unlike pencils. If you are looking for an affordable color pencil set, check out these on Amazon. For markers, I love these ones, also on Amazon. Both produce great pictures and you will love the results. 
     This page, Coloring Pages for Adults, has a ton of amazing printables for those looking to start coloring now. I especially love this plant, with its symmetrical patterns. This floral image is also great and has a ton of intricate details.  I am a huge skull fan, and this page is filled with beauty and detail that will take hours to finish. Head over to Coloring Pages for Adults now and print out a few that you like and give it a whirl.
