COLOURartistics is run by Sally Moret, a freelance designer and illustrator. This is her first colouring book but not the only colouring-related product she has created; colourable wrapping paper sheets and A4 pages for framing are also available on her Etsy.
Pretty Birds (it might be because it's my all-time favourite film but I have to say it like Billy in 4C from Dumb & Dumber- ignore me if you're none the wiser but if you get it, virtual fist bump!) is an A5 colouring journal containing charming nature-focused illustrations alongside ruled, blank and grid lined pages for note taking. It also features inspirational quotes to help lift your day and take a new perspective. Take a look through a selection of pages below.
The book costs £9 and contains 27 double-sided pages so there's lots to colour and fill in. The paper is bright white and a lovely thick stock, perfect for water based markers without bleed through or shadowing.
It's a lovely little book that can be easily popped in a bag and taken out, ready to collect memories, notes, thoughts, diary entries, shopping checklist, to-do lists, recipes... whilst having something handy to colour on your travels too! I like how there are different rules for various types of notes, and how they are a light grey instead of heavy black so they don't take over the page.
Overall I think this delightful book would make a perfect gift for Mum, an Auntie or Sister who love colouring wildlife and floral designs.
Here's a page I coloured ready to take some notes. I chose this particular page as I really do need to 'Think Less, Live More'.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
