From the Author
As an artist, color is a thing of magic in my life. Color creates shapes, forms, and feelings in the artworks I paint. Laying color onto a blank page is when I feel closest to true magic, when I feel happiest and most relaxed, and it's through what I create that I share my love of magic with the world.
Through my coloring books I want to share that same magic with you.The artworks in my books are based on my completed paintings, which I have painted over the last ten years as a professional artist. I have created the coloring designs to be intricate and detailed but still fun and accessible. There is something for lovers of meditative detail while simple enough to not be overwhelming for younger colorists.
When designing my books I decided to print them with two copies of each design, because I know as an artist there are always so many possibilities! I wanted to give everybody the chance of a do-over with every design. Try a different medium, or a different colour scheme. Or a chance to share the magic with a friend, child, parent, sibling. Because sharing your creativity and joy of color is the best magic of all.

The designs cover a nice range of fantasy with mermaids, fairies, witches, dragons, unicorns and more. The designs are fairly simple to color and have open and easy line drawings. These would be great designs for someone with slight fine motor issues and/or visions issues as there is nothing detailed or intricate about them.
I also really appreciate that this artist provides you with two copies of each design. That makes it easy to share or to try two different colorways or mediums.
This is what I experienced while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium on the paper:
25 x 2 Cute Little Girls Fantasy Designs
Printed one side of the page
Paper is white, thin, slightly rough and non-perforated
Designs do not merge into the binding and there is plenty of room to cut out pages if you choose to do so. Some designs have a framing line around the outer edge
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page quickly.
Water-based markers bleed through in spots.
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows on back of the page. India ink can bleed through if you apply heavily or multiple coats.
Coloring Pencils work well with this paper. I found that I could layers the same color for deeper pigment or multiple colors and I could blend easily using a pencils style blending stick. Both wax and oil based pencils worked well with the paper.Read more ›
Plus, it's by such a talented artist, Selina French.
I usually don't purchase coloring book without much of samplings for the pages within.
However, because of reasons already said.....I caved and added it to an order of coloring books I decided to buy for my niece for Christmas.
It has a very soft, satin-ish, type cover. There are 25 very cute and adorable pieces of artwork for you to color. There are 2 sets of each design. Honestly though, I would rather pay a little more for 50 different instead, or maybe 35 to 40 full pages and some smaller repeats (2 a page type) of the simplest pages. That's my one complaint about this book. It's a typical Createspace printed book, meaning somewhat thinner pages. They are all one sided though! Colored pencils and gel pens are fine. Markers will bleed through. I suggest using a piece of thicker card stock or at least 3 or 4 printer papers under the page you are working on. In my experiences in art and coloring, no matter what medium you use, Always put something under it! Even pencils and pens can ruin the pages underneath because they indent the paper as you use them, making it leave the next page harder to color correctly. If possible, I usually take out the page I want to color to avoid this problem. Oh, and this is not a perforated book.
This book is exactly what it states on the cover.....Simple and Sweet! I highly recommend as a beginner level book. Or if you're like me and love the cutie type of fantasy that is much easier on the hands and a fun break from all the more complex ones. I still LOVE those though lol.
Really cute, crisp lines, easy to color and the images just lift your spirits.
I have a practice of dismantling my books and scanning the images to print out on heavy cardstock. It's a great way to assure that your images will hold up to any medium. I use many brand of pencils, alcohol markers, acrylic and paints and sometimes pastels. The cardstock is a must in my book and it's about my only complaint here, but not really a complaint. I just would like to see thicker paper used. I think.it would be better for especially the younger colorists out there.
But it's all good, Selina's images are enchanting!
