The designs are done in a swirly doodle style. The designs all have a hand-drawn look to them with very few straight lines. While I like many computer-generated designs, hand-drawn are still my favorite.
Some of the designs are repeated elements (not wallpaper style as each element is slightly different) and some of the designs are a mass of unusual shapes, lines, and elements. All of the designs have framing lines at the outer edge which provides a natural stopping point in coloring.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium:
31 Swirling Doodle style designs
Printed one side of page
Paper is thin, white, slightly rough and non-perforated. The back of each page is black with a variety of quotes and designs in gray print.
Designs do not merge into the binding and have a frame around the outer edge. Plenty of room to remove pages if you wish.
Book opens fairly flat for coloring by creasing the spine hard.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the paper. You don't see much more than a shadow at the back of the page (because of the black print) but you will need to be careful to use a blotter page so the page underneath does not get ruined by ink bleeding through.
Water-based markers spot through to the back of the page. Again, you can't see it too clearly but I still recommend at blotter page with this medium.
Gel pens and India ink do not bleed through. If they leave shadows, it is hard to see through the black print.
Colored pencils work well with the rough texture of this paper. I did note that pencil style blender sticks did not work well. I found that using them “smudged” the black print of the design consistently. While I generally don't test with wet blending medium, I did so for this book. I found that mineral spirits and other wet blending pens worked well and that petroleum jelly also worked well. No smudging but I would use a blotter page to be safe.
Otherwise, colored pencils did well with pigment lay down and layering with both the same color (for deeper pigment) and multiple colors. I tested both oil and wax-based pencils.
