From Kids' Coloring Pages to Adult Coloring Books, a Brief History

Date: April 10, 2016, By: Admin

In the spring of 2015, adult coloring books hit the American market, climbing quickly to the top of Amazon's Best Seller list. Coloring pages for adults started appearing on Pinterest, and completed designs were proudly showcased on Facebook. Choices in crayons, gel markers and colored pencils became the topic of artsy discussions, as did highlighting and shading techniques. It seems the adult world had rediscovered the simple joys of colouring.

In truth, coloring books have been around for some time. In the 1880s, McLoughlin Brothers published “The Little Folks' Painting Book.” Richard Outcault introduced “Buster's Paint Book” in 1907, one of the first coloring books that would be designed to advertise everything from pianos to tobacco. Milton Bradley created its own line art in the 1920s, but it wasn't until the 1930s that crayons were invented, and a much less-messy medium increased the popularity of colouring pictures.

Very quickly, educators realized the value of kids' coloring pages. Not only could they keep restless hands busy during story time, but they also encouraged conceptual understanding, developed cognitive abilities, improved fine motor skills and might even be “spiritually edifying.” As a non-verbal medium, colouring sheets could be a valuable tool in ESL classes. They could also be used to motivate unwilling students to learn material they would otherwise find uninteresting.

Wedding Colors

Date: March 09, 2016, By: Admin

Colors are an important part of weddings. When you first think of the word wedding you will naturally think of white. That is the natural color of Western weddings. Yet every wedding will have a color scheme. A color scheme is important because it helps unify everything. And by everything I mean the dresses, the flowers, the tablecloths and anything else you can think of that goes into a wedding. In this article, we're gonna talk about how to choose colors for your wedding in 2016.

Wedding Traditions and Colors

White is the color of weddings. The reason for this goes back a couple of hundred years and Queen Victoria. She wanted to show off some expensive lace that she had received. And white was the best way to do that. Another reason why white has been associated with weddings was because it was a way to show off your wealth. In historical times, you were truly wealthy if you could afford to wear a white dress because that meant you knew if it got dirty, then you can afford to throw it away. But colors go beyond white in any wedding. Let's look at some of the ways colors are used in a wedding.

Wedding Theme and Colors

It's popular that when you plan a wedding you choose a theme. It could be something like Western. Or fairytale. Or getting more specific like a peacock. In each of these themes certain colors will naturally align. For example, in a fairytale wedding, you will think of reds and pinks. Meanwhile, for a peacock wedding, you will think of blues and greens. And there's a lot away you can get green into wedding colors. In particular anything that has flowers and, of course, the actual bouquets. Yet each wedding season will also bring their own color trends.
