      What do you think to the latest trends with the big Manufactures bringing ‘colouring’ into Scrapbooking papers?

        I saw an advert for 12×12 scrapbook papers that were black and white patterns to colour in for background papers. I like colouring and would like to do them as a separate project but not sure if I would want to incorporate them into my scrapbook pages.

          I never got into the adult colouring craze only because I never have the time to do it.

          I love patterned paper as it is, I’m not sure I’m up for colouring my own scrapbook paper

            I’m with Bec on the the pattern paper the way it is and not coloring it.

            I’m just not into the coloring trend at all. I’ll add it to the list with the paper dolls as things to leave in my childhood.

              I am not a fan of the adult color book craze. The last time I went to a crop, a bunch of ladies had them and colored the entire time!

              I do like the Prima watercolor books and paintables because I have the watercolor confections and pencils, and I enjoy learning how to use them on the papers. I only have the watercolor books because I won them from the Prima wall art contest, along with some frames for them. I make them for decor and practicing watercolor techniques. I can’t imagine I would use them on scrapbook pages though.

                NO! My dd is into it but she’s 20 and doesn’t scrap.

                  Not into the coloring. Seems like it takes up to much time. I’ll leave the scrapbook paper to the designers.

                    I agree. I want to leave the scrapbook paper to the designers. I have nothing against adult coloring books, I just don’t have the extra time.

                      I hadn’t even thought about using pages for my scrapbooks, but I’ve loved the mental therapy of coloring since I was a kid many moons ago, and the adult coloring craze has given me many new options for coloring. I still have several coloring books from my childhood, along with a few boxes of Crayolas. Much as I enjoy scrapbooking and other paper crafts, for me there’s nothing quite like the simple pleasure of an image to color and pencils or crayons to use. I also have all of the Julie Nutting stamps, which I love to color and layer with patterned papers. I started out as a stamper in 1997, and I was hooked because of the images I could color, especially the Stampendous florals and Precious Moments lines, and the Personal Stamp Exchange florals.

                        I’m not into the coloring either. Prima started the paintables awhile ago, I have them and really didn’t use them. So I won’t be adding more to the pile that I will eventually go thru to purge. I will be sticking with the patterned paper!

                          Not for me. I still have a lot of the watercolor papers. I have used some for cards, but for an entire layout? ‘Fraid not.
                          (This might have something to do with my inability to stay in the lines, lol.)

                          A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.
