This past week has been very difficult and stressful for me. So this time I’d like to share with you all my latest puzzle book, Querkles.
Querkles starts out as a puzzle of many intersecting circles like this
These can be completed in 1 of 2 ways.
- Use 1 color and cross hatching the different shades or
- Use 5 different colors organized from darkest to lightest.
For this particular puzzle I chose to use 5 different colors.
Basically what you do is start by filling in all the number 1 spaces with the darkest color.
Then color in all the number 2 spaces with the next, lighter, color.
And keep going lighter for the number 3 spaces
And number 4 spaces
And finally number 5 should be colored with the lightest color.
Ta da!!! Simple enough, right? These puzzles have been really helpful in trying to distract me from overthinking for a little while.
If you are interested in finding your own querkles book, I found mine at Michael’s mixed in their adult coloring book section. I have only seen the animals themed book in stores but there are more out there for sale on the internet.
