'Christina Rose is the creator of a series of grown-up colouring books designed to delight and de-stress.'
I am not ashamed to admit that I was attracted to this book by its title and the front cover...the latter showing you what one could achieve, or 'do your own thing', on the black & white version found half way through the book.
The book measures in around 27.75 cm x 21.5 cm and is in double-page spread format, using 'the tree of life' as the source for the 47 full-page black & white line drawings on the right hand side and a thought provoking quote on each left hand page, sometimes short & sweet; sometimes more complex, e.g.:
♦ 'The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.', by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
♦ 'You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.', by Max Ehrmann.
I only use regular colouring pencils with this particular book, which will lie flat ~ sometimes under a bit of pressure, to start with ~ depending on where your chosen picture is.
Given the quality of the paper, I think it is possible that a 'wet tip' could bleed through the page, but it will only likely damage the quote on the back which isn't too much of an issue especially if the aim is to cut the page out and stick it in a scrapbook (in my case) or into a frame.
If using fine-liners, I would recommend cutting out first and clipping to a board or placing a piece of cardboard behind the page to protect the following picture...just in case.
The 'Look Inside' facility above shows a good cross section of the book.
Of course intricacy is at the hand of the colourer and there is great opportunity to make the illustrations as simple or as detailed as possible.
All that is required is time, oodles of patience, reasonable eyesight for precision work and a really sharp point at times, IMO!
Other titles, created by Christina Rose, currently include:
♦ Dream Catcher: a soul bird's journey
And, perhaps, a special treat for 'Mothering Sunday', coming along (at the time of writing):
♦ Love You Mum: doodle & dream
♦ Love You Grandma: doodle & dream
