Color Me Up
You may have spotted the lovely art piece created by artist Brooklyn Dolly for our booth at CURLFEST 2017. Anyone who stopped by the EDEN BodyWorks booth had the opportunity to add a splash of color onto the “color me up” mural, and it was a hit!
The image features three different women and their hair. One with a fabulous afro, another with Fulani-esque cornrows and the other with flowing waves. The ladies are adorned with flowers, leaves, butterflies and more, just waiting to be brought to life with vibrant color. We love this image because it reminds us of the diversity and natural beauty of the community who supports the EDEN family.
In fact, we love it so much that we’ve decided to provide a version of the image that you can download and print out right at home!
Color it, paint it, do whatever you’d like with it! And if you’re thinking coloring is just for the little ones, think again! Coloring intricate pictures has become a trend, but it’s actually been suggested by a number of psychologists as an alternative to meditation.
In other words, it’s calming, relaxing, and can help to enhance focus and concentration. So if you’re stressed out, bored, or even just looking for a way to get your creativity flowing, try it out and tell us what you think!
