Outside the Lines
Donna Downey 2015 Artist Gang #2

Coloring is not just for kids – millions of adults are turning to coloring books to relieve stress and have an analog experience in a digital world.  In fact, two coloring books for adults were leading Amazon’s bestseller list in April 2015.

But coloring books are mostly about the lines.  Don’t we all have a story about a parent or teacher demanding that we color within the lines?  I say, what fun is that?  So I turned traditional coloring upside down. In this project, I demonstrate how to make the coloring book lines fit my color and not the other way around!
