Good Day! I just had to share the coloring app that I use as a time waster/ anxiety buster. I know it is available on Android, not sure about iPhone. It is called “Paint by Number” and looks like this:
I’ve always loved the pictures this app has but they have recently upped their game. Here are just a few of the pagan related pictures I’ve completed while under COVID’s influence.
@Francisco, it depends on the picture. Some are really simple so it takes only a few minutes. Others are made up of lots of little pieces so it takes quite a bit longer. I think the longest one was around 20 minutes. It was a image you could use as a background on your phone and the pieces were tiny. Plus there was 97 colors! I’ll add some pictures of what the pictures look like before coloring in shortly.
@Siofra_Strega, I love regular coloring too. This was actually suggested by my psychiatrist for when I’m out and about. It helps keep my mind occupied (ADHD) while still calming me (anxiety). I will still break out the crayons and adult coloring books at home from time to time.
@TheTravelWitch_Bry, yes! I have tried painting in the past but I just make a mess, lol. This is much easier.
As if you already didn’t have me sold on this, the pictures you are sharing are just 100% my aesthetic- what a fun collection! And the surprise ones!?! I feel like it would be easy to get addicted to this
I still need to download the app, but in the meantime I bought two paint-by-number picture kits yesterday because I just kept thinking about how fun this looks- can’t wait for them to arrive!
I have one of a pit bull (my breed of choice for many years now) that I purchased several years ago and haven’t finished. I just find other things to work on. I’m the odd one out in my family that I’m the only one that doesn’t have a creative bone in my body. But that’s why I ended up with a Masters in Biochemistry (Molecular Genetics) and owning a cybersecurity consulting company.
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t feel like creativity is limited to just the “arts”- you found a way to pursue your interest and came up with a way to turn your passion into a working livelihood, which is very creative if you ask me! Every business has to apply creativity in some way- you created a business and used ingenuity to make it successful! Give yourself more credit, my friend- you sound like a very smart and creative person to me
Awwww that sounds like a cute picture! I got one of flowers and one of the ocean, but I think if I saw a cute cat one (and I am sure they are out there lol) I probably couldn’t resist either
