This Color Me Happy Coloring Book is Amazing!! It is filled with 100 images to Color in a variety of patterns to wake up your imagination and help to reduce your stress. Lacy has done a wonderful job designing all these original designs. You will find all kinds of images in here! This book is broken down into Chapters. The Chapter are: Nature, Animals & Babies, Music, Food & Drink, Whimsical Imagery and Arts & Architecture.
In each of these Chapter you will find wonder images that somehow relate to the chapter to which they are in. For example in Nature there is a Desert Scene with a Sunset, a Mountain Scene and plenty of Flowers. All these imkages are in a frame so they are very easy to get out even though the pages are not perforated. Each Chapter is Color Coded and concentrates on a different things in your life that you have encountered. This is a book for Absolutely Everyone!!
The beginning of the book has the Contents showing the 6 Chapters. The next page has a colored page for inspiration and the Introduction which I enjoyed reading because it broadened my thought on what coloring means to me and how I color. At the bottom of page 9 is the Color Tips. Reading the beginning of the book is very informative and I enjoyed it a lot.
This Color Me Happy Coloring Book has a High Quality Card Board Cover and measures about 8 ¾ inches x 9 ¾ inches, and ¾ inches thick. Each picture is printed one a single side of the page and is centered. Because of the binding on this book you must bend where the cover meet the back and kind of stretch it aa little to get it to lay nice and flat.
These pages are not perforated and they do not tear out easily either so I suggest scoring them with a pair of scissors and them carefully tearing them out. I don’t know about you but I like displaying and sending my colored pages to friends. I used Gel Pens and they did NOT show through the paper. I do know from my Color me Calm book that Sharpie wont even bleed through. I ALWAYS suggest using a piece of paper or 2 between your pages if you are using markers.
This book is perfect for any medium! You can use markers, coloring pencils, gel pens or crayons. Anything you want to use will be PERFECT!! My suggestion also is if you use marker to make sure you have both fine line and broad line or buy the type that is both thin and broad so that you have the same color in both fine and broad line markers.
This book is PERFECT for Everyone! From beginner to experienced Colorist. I know I am not the best Colorist but I can color everything in this book. I received Color Me Happy in exchange for my honest review.
