New Collaboration with Artist Lorraine Hall & Free Mindful Rainbow Colouring Sheet
We have collaborated with wonderful North East illustrator and artist Flutter By Lorraine to bring you this gorgeous free printable Rainbow Mindful Colouring Sheet.
Colouring is a great way to add mindfulness to your life and calm down the busiest of minds. Research shows that colouring activities help relax the amygdala - the brain's fear centre. Mindful colouring is a wonderfully therapeutic and a relaxing 'Stay At Home' activity to help manage stress and anxiety.
You could print some extras off for the kids to stick in your window and join in with the Rainbow Trail. You can even write your own positive message in the cloud like this one!
Update our gorgeous cards are now available to buy now
We are also working on turning the illustration into our first ever Greetings Card which will be available to purchase on the website. The card will be in happy vibrant colours, complete with a positive quote - watch this space...
I met Lorraine at The Mint Business Club (a community of solo, micro and small businesses) and we instantly hit it off at the same time as falling in love with her work!
A Little Bit About Lorraine
Lorraine uses watercolours and takes her inspiration predominantly from nature. Her style is quirky and unique, with a fun, cheerful, uplifting element. Most of her paintings include her signature splash/spiral effect.
Much of Lorraine’s artwork is also inspired by and includes wellbeing quotes. Wellbeing is hugely important to her alongside painting, which has always been her passion. She actively finds time and space in her busy life (she is also a teacher) to look after herself by indulging in an activity that she loves. You can read more about Lorraine and view her stunning work on her website, Facebook or Instagram page.
