This book has a generous amount of coloring! Included in this coloring book: 1 "This book belongs to" that can be colored, 30 full page illustrations, 15 pages of greeting card size illustrations (they're the same ones at the full page illustrations), 4 bonus full page illustrations, plus an index of the illustrations in the book that could be colored, and 3 color reference sheets so that you can create a color chart of your markers, crayons, pens, pencils, etc.
The designs vary from really easy to ones that will take patience to complete.
I chose to color 2 of the greeting card size illustrations for this review and it took me about four hours to complete both of them. (They are in my video below). I used Stabilo Mini Pen 68 18-color Wallet,BIC Marking Permanent Marker Fashion Colors, Ultra Fine Point, Assorted Colors, 36-Count,Stabilo 8830-1 88 Point 30 Color Wallet, and various brands of colored pencils.
Normally, I don't remove pages from my coloring books, but I am glad that I did this time. The BIC Marking Permanent Marker Fashion Colors, Ultra Fine Point, Assorted Colors, 36-Count bled through the paper and onto my clipboard. I know now to make sure I am using a blotter if I am going to color in the book rather than removing the sheets.
Sue states on the back of the book that the pages aren't meant to be kept in the coloring book, but I have so many coloring books that I would have pages floating around my living room, so I prefer to keep them in the books. Also, the pages aren't perforated, so you have to tear them out or break the book apart. (If you go to the artist's website, she has an amazing tutorial of how to effectively take your coloring books apart with a blow dyer, it's ingenious!)
With that being said, the only thing I would change about this book is making it spiral bound with perforated pages. That's my personal preference and you will find that any coloring book I review that isn't spiral bound has a similar comment. Left handed colorists are challenged by ink!!!
Each inspirational page is very different from the next. I love that each image is an original drawing made by the artist herself, so you won't see something you've seen before in other books. The shadow 3-D effect gives the pages a cool effect and helps to add depth to the coloring. There are also card-sized pages (duplicates of the full-sized pages) to color and give as a card --- or you can color the smaller versions when you don't want to spend too much time coloring a page. I think people of any age or skill level will enjoy this delightful book!

With a vibrant bright yellow cover, this book is immediately eyecatching. The glossy card cover is brightly coloured with images from the book and a standout 3D effect on the lettering.
At 27.9cm x 21.6cm and 124 pages, this book is a heftier colouring book than most! The spine is glue bound and the spine is quite pliable straight away. The first few pages contain a nameplate page to colour, a note from the artist and an index of the images.
The back of the book contains four bonus illustrations from the artists other colouring books, and three 'test' pages to try different mediums and colour combinations.
The paper is of moderate thickness, and with a good amount of tooth. Images are single sided, so as long as you place a few sheets of paper behind the image, any medium will be suitable. I was able to achieve quite a few layers with coloured pencil.
Images are surrounded by a border and the area next to the spine includes a space for the colourists name along with the name of the design.
The second half of the book contains a second copy of all the artwork at greeting card size. These are two to a page, and do not enter the spine. These are also single sided, perfect for removing and making cards or other projects with.
This is an inspirational colouring book with a difference - the words within each image have a shadow, causing a 3D effect. This does not affect the colouring at all, but gives a simple special effect to the finished work.
There are thirty designs in this book, each one containing a positive message to colour. The messages are surrounded by optimistic, relevant imagery to add colour to. These include messages such as 'Bloom' surrounded by flowers, 'Shine' next to a lantern with a woodgrain backdrop, 'Soar' with a bird mandala above.
The images are cleanly designed, with no need to decipher or figure out what goes where. Line thickness is medium throughout, and remains crisp and clear throughout. Intricacy does vary, but the majority of images are a good mix of small and larger spaces throughout.
Images such as these are great for days when you may be feeling down, anxious or are having physical health issues. Colouring the messages and the accompanying imagery is a great way to distract yourself and focus on something positive.
The intricacy means that this book would be wonderful for those with fluctuating concentration levels, as the structure of the images means that you can colour one letter, one ant, one flower - or five in one sitting. You can also colour a smaller, greeting card size image in a shorter amount of time.
The line thickness remains moderate, and I think it will be suitable for those with vision impairments. As always, please do check the images and video before deciding!
Thankyou for reading and I hope you've enjoyed this review,
