I’ve been obsessed with coloring books since I was a kid. My sister has a great collection and is really into the benefits of coloring books for adults and how they help her feel more creative. I use coloring books to relax. I suffer from some anxiety problems and coloring really helps me leave the stress behind and feel in peace.

One of my new favorite coloring books for adults is this one named “Tattoo Designs Creative Coloring for Grown-Ups”. I got it in California a few months ago when I was visiting my sister. It has great illustrations and I love the bold thick black lines in the designs.

If you have a favorite coloring book, don’t hide your favorite creations inside. That’s how I felt about these illustrations that I really like, so I decided to frame them and use them to decorate my bedroom.

This idea is an easy and inexpensive way to create art for your home. It looks great in a bedroom, living room or you can use the idea to decorate your kids bedroom with their favorite cartoon characters.

I painted a few old frames with pastel color acrylic paint. I used a sheet of sandpaper to scrape the top of the frames a bit and give them that distressed look. You can also add a few brushes of a color that are one or two tones darker to give it more of a vintage look.

Check out the video to see how I created mine (It’s in spanish but it’ll give you an idea of materials and steps and how they should look).
