Masja's here again with part three of her stunning series, Mijn Wonderlijke Wereld (click for my review of parts one & two), which contains another 46 pages of beautiful illustrations. This third installment has a wintry theme, ideal for its release at this time of year, with snowflake-inspired patterns, majestic reindeer and Paisley floral wreaths. Masja's artwork never fails to blow me away with the patternful animals and swirling, decorative ornaments- I even love her Mandalas (generally not my favourite thing to colour) as they are just so pretty.
The three books look great together, this latest one featuring silver foil on the cover to add to the seasonal feel.
The paper quality in part 3 is comparable to that in part 2: thicker than the first book and smooth white, with a good amount of tooth to layer those soft pencils. Waterbased markers and gel pens don't bleed through either. What I love about Masja's illustrations is that they maintain a level of complexity whilst not having very small spaces, so if you're someone who doesn't have great eyesight or just feels daunted by millions of tiny shards, Masja's books are a brilliant compromise.
Here's my finished picture, coloured with Prismacolor pencils. It took me hours to complete as I decided I wanted every colour to be blended!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Masja's Etsy page.
