There are few art forms as meditative, nostalgic and all-around blissful as the coloring book. There's just something magical about the ability to transform black-and-white pages into full blown works of art, without ever once undergoing a creative meltdown in the process. Yes, we're waxing poetic about our third grade creative outlet of choice, the unassuming booklet of canvases that turns even the most reticent of artists into budding creative spirits. Basford, a commercial illustrator based in the UK, modeled her first book The Secret Garden after the Brodick Castle Gardens on the Isle of Arran, on the West Coast of Scotland. Dubbing herself an "inky illustrator," Basford uses monochromatic lines to create wild naturescapes waiting to be filled with vitality. Consider trading in your yoga mat for a set of markers and peruse the gorgeous gardens of Basford's imagination below. The trials and tribulations of a [not so] long distance runner living in deepest, darkest Kent. Sunday's run was a full of mystery with George mentioning that he had not entered any races for sure this year but was quickly deciding what to do as the possibilities were being concidered by his goodself. I have abbreviated the surnames for privacy reason but on calling George tonight I was assured that he had not in fact entered the race but had enquired last October of the possibility of entering a waiting list.

The process is intuitive, carefree -- the artistic equivalent of a low-stakes game of freeze tag.
And although most practitioners of this enchanting art form haven't yet hit puberty, there are ways for adults to participate in the glorious art of the coloring book. The artist has sold over one million copies of Secret Garden worldwide, which has been translated into over 14 different languages.
Since the early 20th century, psychologists including Carl Jung have preached the tranquil advantages of the technique. He was even heard to "grumble" that he was my pack horse and able training partner and I was ever so often interrogated on what my arrangements for the Thames Path 100 in  March.
I was amazed to hear that even back then the waiting list was closed due to the number of applicants but even more amazed to hear that so many people have dropped out.
Enter Johanna Basford, the intrepid soul behind two adult coloring books, Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest, spreading the gospel of the coloring book to aspiring artists of a certain age.
There's something undeniably accessible about the semi-blank pages of a coloring book that provides the training wheels so many budding artists crave. No mention was made of any of his plans apart from one of his favourite "must do" marathons, The Steyning Stinger (technically an ultra at 43 km) on 4th March.

I wonder if it is people putting in a speculative entry in hope of doing it then dropping out as well as injured runners.
My venue is a large ballroom that is enclosed with a black fence I was going to weave fake flowers and heart garland into it and with the help of my horticulture friends ( I’m in an ag sorority at NDSU) place flowers all over the place. The flowers in these pic don’t match your theme much but the lanterns and candles are neat ideas.
A blank sheet of paper can be daunting, but a coloring book has the outlines already there, making it easier to pick up a pencil and begin making your mark. My FH is very into the steampunk thing so I wanted to incoporate brass and I bought him a steampunk pocketwatch.
