Colour Calm Magazine + Giveaway
It was only a matter of time before another magazine series appeared to rival Art Therapy and Zen Colouring, and Colour Calm is storming the UK shelves- and it's only on its second issue, the first one rapidly sold out. There's a new edition every month, each one crammed full of designs to keep you going between times.
Colour Calm is better described as a book in my opinion; with 116 illustrations it's no flimsy magazine. There is a wide variety of different types and styles of illustration; the first issue concentrating on botanicals, flora and fauna, whilst the second issue points more to food and cookery. See below for an in-depth look into both volumes.
The designs in the magazine incorporate very fine to bold linework, so there's a range of styles to choose from depending on your preference. The second, foodie-focused issue features scrumptious designs from Tom Hovey, graphic designer for BBC's Great British Bake Off! You can even win one of his A3 prints, a pack of gel pens and the next edition of Colour Calm in their exclusive competition.
Each issue costs £4.99, which when compared to a colouring book of a similar size and quality is a fantastic price. So what are you waiting for, scamper down to your local newsagent/supermarket before they run out!
I'm also running a giveaway for FIVE copies of Issue 2, so to be in with a chance of winning, just comment on this Facebook post telling me why you need a copy of Colour Calm.
(UK only, ends 5th Sept)
Here are my finished pages from each mag. I've seen a lot of different ideas floating around the Facebook groups lately, one of which is patchwork colouring. I'm not sure I like the way mine has turned out, but it's worth a try as I've seen some gorgeous variations. Have you created a patchwork picture? Show me on Facebook, I love to see your artwork :)
I was given these copies in exchange for an honest review. You can find Colour Calm in newsagents and supermarkets across the UK, or subscribe here.

My daughter in law would like to start colouring. She has a 2 year old who hasn't yet slept through the night and colouring would be a restful and focussed time-out for her when the stress starts to bite. We haven't found the right book yet but these look ideal.

Thanks for this review. I just looked around and found a good deal on both of the first two issues. Looking forward to all of that coloring!!

I'd love this because of the variety of patterns, it's nice not to always have a set theme! I love the patchwork idea - I'm itching to try that on something but picking out the pattern in contrasting colours on each square.. Ooh inspiration..
