Fanciful Fashions by Marjorie Sarnat

Home | Coloring Books | Fanciful Fashions by Marjorie Sarnat

I love this Fanciful Fashions Book!!! I have several books by Marjorie Sarnot. This is the second edition of this book and it has 49 images in it. It has 34 of the original images plus 15 brand new ones!!

 

This is a fashion themed book and has a lot of semi intricate and intricate collages of clothes, shoes, hats and such. She has taken fashion to a whole new level. Her artwork is impeccable and captivating.

 

Each collage on the page follows a theme. Some of the themes you just have to figure out what they are. It may be the type of shirt, hat, shoe, or it could be that fact that they are purses, shoes, bows or even maybe the design. It’s an amazing book either way.

 
For example:

 

Cats Theme
Pampered Pet Theme
Owls Theme
Western Theme
Bows Theme
Hearts Theme

 

I love how some of the borders are more than just plain black lines. She loves to create unique and embellished designs. Not only in the scenery but in the page as a whole. She really gives me something to look forward to when I see that a new book is out.

 

This is not a Creative Haven book but a Sky Horse Publishing book.  This is a great book for all Colorist!! I have several other books by Marjorie Sarnat. Cats (Creative Haven), Dazzling Dogs (Creative Haven), Owls (Creative Haven), Pampered Pets, (Sky Horse Publishing) and I am anxiously waiting for Fanciful Foxes (Creative Haven).

 

These images are printed on bright white paper and they are single sided, leaving the back blank. This is some good medium weight paper. These pages are perforated. My brand of Gel Pens didn’t bleed through but I will say that I ALWAYS put paper or card stock under the image I am working on.

 

I won’t risk ruining the next image. I think the more wet the medium is the more likely it will be to bleed through. This really is a must have book for anyone who likes Marjorie Sarnats books. I know I personally can’t wait to start coloring the next amazing image. This really is an awesome book and I was fortune enough to receive Fanciful Fashions in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

5 Pairs Baby Toddler Anti Slip Skid Socks

Home | Children | 5 Pairs Baby Toddler Anti Slip Skid Socks

This set of 5 Baby Toddler Anti Skid Socks is really cute!!  These are for age 1-3 year olds with a foot size 3.5 to 4.7 and meant for toddlers who walk or babies learning to walk. They need to fit well on the foot to make sure there are no accidents.

 

They came in 5 different colors and designs. I got some are boy and some are girl designs. The Panda and the Tugboat both have lace around the top where the foot slides in. Other than the tugboat all these socks can be used for girls.

 

The socks are a little over 5 inches long and they have non-skid bottoms. They are meant to be worn without shoes. These are great for running around the house or going out on the town.

 

The Designs on all of them are really cute. I received:

 

Tugboat
Panda
Bunny
Pink Frog
Yellow Frog

 

The elastic around the ankles is strong and is great for keeping the slippers/socks on. They are a very soft and the kids seem to like them a lot. I have observed them on several occasions wearing them. These are great quality and very well made.

 

These are some really great socks and I received these 5 pairs of Baby Toddler Anti Skid Socks in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

 

The Masters of Fashion Illustration by Wendy Piersall

Home | Coloring Books | The Masters of Fashion Illustration by Wendy Piersall

The Master of Fashion Illustration is an Amazing that is full of some Amazing work. It is a Fashion based book that shows the work of 5 Artists that are teeming with life, even today.  She honors these Artists by hand drawing these images in their likeness. The Artists are George Wolfe Plank, George Barbier, Helen Dryden, Frank Leyendecker and Erte.

 

 

The images are from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco area which range from 1890 to 1930. The oldest date in the book is 1911. They are Delicate, Timeless and have a very Classic feel. I love images like these. Wendy usually does Mandalas so this is a “Out of the Box” experience for her but she has really done a beautiful job at it.

 

 

This book is 11″ x 8.5 ” and there are 30 images in this book. They are full of carefully drawn details. This is a book that everyone can color. None of them are so intricate that even a beginner can’t do them. My motto is that you set your own limits. I am not the best colorist but there is nothing in here that I would shy away from.

 

 

All of these pages have boarders around them which is great! It gives them a definite stopping point to each image and makes them easy to get out since these pages are not perforated. This is light weight paper so make sure to always put a couple sheets of paper, card stock or heavyweight paper under the page you’re working on so you don’t ruin the next image.

 

 

 

This is my 4th book of Wendy’s and although I am used to her Mandalas I absolutely love it. I love intricate work!! It helps me to focus and block out all the craziness around me! I have PTSD and I suffered for so long from symptoms like anxiety until a friend told me about coloring. As soon as I started I was hooked!!

 

 

Wendy has an AMAZING talent for drawing! This book is crying out for you to put color to the images. I am so happy I got it because I can put it with my Fashion collection. I have to say that out of my Fashion Coloring Books, that this is one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to receive Masters of Fashion Illustration in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.
