Hello, readers! In my opinion, there is nothing better than curling up with a colouring book and a cup of tea on a cold January evening! And this blog post will be all about Anastasia Catris' amazing colouring book series, Colour Me Mindful. And especially my favourite book so far in the series, 'Enchanted Creatures'!
I was kindly sent Colour Me Mindful: Enchanted Creatures by Orion in exchange for an honest review :)
Intrigued? Here's the blurb...
A mindful art therapy colouring book for adults, filled with beautiful enchanted creatures.
Not just for kids anymore, colouring delivers a deeply satisfying experience that is almost meditative and colouring books are growing in popularity as anti-stress aids for adults.
Complete with intricately detailed and beautiful line-art, this book depicts a breathtaking array of enchanted creatures.
Your mind will focus as you fill the pages with colour, becoming calm and reducing stress. This is mindful, simple therapy for adults that can be carried out every day.
With stunning illustrations to colour in and admire, this book provides a creative outlet and a deeply soothing mindful experience for those in need of a little artistic stress-busting.
I LOVE this series so much, and don't have enough good words to say about it. All of the drawings are so interesting and detailed and intricately created, but at the same time there is the perfect mix of simple shapes to colour in, and more complex time-consuming designs. It depends on my mood or my reason for colouring to decide which kind of drawing I'm going to colour.
I especially love this edition of Colour Me Mindful because the drawings are so imaginative and this really allows you to go crazy and as creative as possible with these designs. I felt free to use any colour I wanted, and mix it up a bit between colouring pencils and fine liners.
I really recommend this edition of Colour Me Mindful, and all of the others of course! This one will especially appeal to those who love fantasy and fantastical creatures, like mermaids, dragons, unicorns and many more. Check out some of my examples here, but to see all of the drawings, pop into your local bookshop and pick up a copy- you won't regret it!
