I have to admit and say I totally fell for this colouring book hype that emerged lately. I'm not artistically gifted so I always loved colouring so I jumped at the chance to review this colouring book, especially since it says vintage and I love the designs and patterns on anything vintage. I skimmed through the book and I must say I liked alot of the patterns on the pages, some were much more appealing to me than others and there's a pretty big number of these designs.. this is a book that will take you around four months to complete if you do one page a day (one design is found in every two pages). So I really wanted to get to it and I began my journey of hand cramping but satisfying beautiful coloured photos.
I initially started with the design on the bottom left photo... unfortunately this particular photo had no concept of solid lines.. everything merged together and there was no distinction between when one thing ended and another started... so I gave up on it and started doing the design on the bottom right corner. I have to admit that I really liked how that turned out. All the mixing of colours was just so pretty.. I was afraid that I was just messing it up but you know what? that's the whole point.. colour with whatever colours you feel, there is no right or wrong. I quite like how colourful it is and I now truly believe in art therapy.
I would recommend colouring books for people who have coloured and had an interest in it, I would also recommend this specific book but I must say a lot of the designs do not interest me at all and some of them were quite boring, however every couple of pages you get a beautiful design like the one I coloured completely and I'm happy I have this book for whenever I feel like colouring and taking a break from what I usually do.
