When I was pregnant I was fortunate enough to be sent some grown up colouring books to review.
I was so pleased whenMichael O’mara books asked me to review the 2014 editions of these grown up colouring books – Vintage Patterns and Pretty Patterns.
Having two children under two means that my time to myself is a little restricted, and when I do have a few moments on my own I don’t always want to get out a book to read or my sewing – things that I need more than ten minutes to concentrate on.
These colouring books are great, I can colour when Daniel is drawing, or when I have few minutes to myself. I find it relaxing and doesn’t require a huge amount of thought.
When I recently posted a pic of my colouring to Instagram, it got a lot of comments and positive reaction… it seems that grown up colouring books are a big hit. And I can see why.
There are plenty fo brilliant pages and patterns in here… below are a few excerpts from both books:
I like some of the bolder patterns, like that shown in the last picture, but I have enjoyed these two so far from the Vintage Patterns book
There really is something for everyone here – there are repeating patterns, or pictures like that of the bird above. There are bold thick solid line drawings and softer lighter lines. What I love about these books from Michael O’Mara is that the paper is such good quality. When using felt pens they don’t bleed through – so you can use both sides – without having to choose which design you want to do.
I think of the two, the Vintage Patterns book is my favourite. They are both priced at £9.99 and are available here and here on Amazon.
