A Write The Light In Journal Series

Elucidate Publishing is about light: revealing the light, making things clear, opening minds and hearts, and creating light in dark tunnels.

Owner/Author/Artist LK Hunsaker has always had an optimistic side within her penchant for realism. Nature and the Arts have always infused her soul with inspiration and rejuvenation. Her novels reflect this, and now, the beginning of a new project will, in all hopes, help others feed the light inside and cleanse the dark.

Adult coloring books are widely popular recently, as a response to overwhelming hectic lives and large doses of social media, electronics, and a constant barrage of information. The act of putting pencil to paper in a creative activity is calming to the mind. It can also be self-therapeutic.

The new Thoughts & Sketches journals combine adult coloring pages with lined and blank pages, plus plenty of prompts that encourage each of us to look inside, to ponder, to revive ourselves with the healing power* of the written word, imagery, and color.

Many of the images in the journals are open for completion and/or addition. Add to the half page scenes to create a full page image, or use the open, unlined space to write your thoughts, doodle, or whatever you like. Create your own coloring scenes on the blank pages or use them for unbound writing. Some of the lined pages have extra open space along the edges for doodling, notes, or wherever your own creativity takes you.

A Writing Journal. A Coloring Sketchbook.
