Children have known for years that settling down to tackle a nice bit of colouring-in is a relaxing way to unwind and it looks like us grown-ups have finally caught on! Cool, Calm, Create is pre-school specialists, Redan Publishing’s first magazine to target adults and will hit the newsstands on 30th July, providing a monthly shot of art therapy to frazzled parents up and down the country.
The new magazine offers 68 pages of intricate colouring and doodling spreads designed to help focus the mind and aid relaxation. Using a bespoke blend of patterns, mandalas and tangles, issue one has a marine and ocean theme and comes with a free cover-mounted gift of 5 colouring pencils, making it the perfect gift to pick up and go and an ideal travel companion for summer holidays.
Someone actually suggested to me that I should give adult colouring a try. I have never had the time to treat myself to a book so I was looking forward to seeing what Calm Colour Create had to offer.
I was very surprised about the amount of styles and different colour levels that there are in the first issue. I like that there is also space for you to doodle, there are even suggestions on how to fill the blank space.
So far I have only coloured in one of the designs. I actually really enjoyed colouring in, it made we switch off and not have to worry about anything else.
In today’s world it always feels like you are plugged into something, when colouring in I didn’t have to read anything, look at a screen or follow a plot. You can actually make your mind go blank, it was a nice feeling.
Calm Colour Create is a monthly magazine and I think each magazine will easily keep you busy for the month. I think it would also be something that you could take away with you. Colouring in would be very easy to just pick up and put down at any moment.
Calm Colour Create retails at £4.99 and is available on selected newsstands now.
