" If you can be anything, Be Kind."
Currently, Adult coloring book pages are all the rage! They are all over pinterest and instagram, and I even Tula Pink has just released her own coloring book. I always find coloring, painting and doodling to be so relaxing and I thought this could be a great Idea to give to someone as a Random Act of Kindness.
There are times in our lives when we can be feeling a little low, and sometimes it's just that little reminder that there is a person out there that is thinking about you and loves you that can make all the difference. With this watercolor I plan to frame it and give it to a friend to hang on their wall as a rememinder that everytime they see the picture that I love them very much!
I choose to paint the picture with watercolors instead of coloring it in. I'm a little obsessed with watercolors at the moment and wanted to give it a go. So I found a free printable and printed it on some watercolor paper. I played around with mixing colors to get different effects and then splashed gold polka dots around the background for some pizazz!!! (Gotta love the bling)
The more I looked on Mr.google and Mrs. pinterest the more awesome free downloads I found. Here are a few that I think would really lend themselves to watercolor or coloring and look great framed.
1. Today Is Going to Be Awesome
2. All of Me Loves All of You
3. You are so Very Loved
4. I Love Everything About You
And if painting/coloring isn't your thing you can simply download, print and frame. How easy is that!!!
The website that I found the most ideas and inspirations from was By Dawn Nicole She had so many fun projects, coloring book pages, and even a book on etsy that you could purchase for only $10 with all the pages you see below. Imagine coloring these in and giving them out to people you know. It would really brighten their day. I also thought this would be a great project for kids especially with watercolors. I know that when I was in hospital, the thing that meant the most to me was the little "get well soon" picture from my Nephew. I looked at it over and over again, and thought about how I needed to get better so I could go see him.
Be the change you would like to see in the world. Make a difference in someone elses life and reach out and let them know you are right there with them. This project may be little and simple, but could make a huge difference in someone's life right now.
