I've always heard people rave about Stabilo and their marker pens, and now I finally know what all the fuss is about! These are some quality pens with resilient nibs to boot! Barbara from Stabilo was so generous in the package she sent me, I was gifted both 68 and 88 pens in the roll up travel cases in fun, vibrant prints, each containing 25 marker pens, along with pencils, and an awesome pen from their Limited Edition S'move Beach Collection! And all are fantastic products!
These two books are part of a series introduced by Streetlight Graphics, LLC. Sophisticated and original are two things that come to mind with these two colouring books. The Garden Mandala, their newest release, features 21- one side printed pages with intricate, floral designed mandalas that are incredibly calming to colour, while The Eclectic Owl, presents us with another 21 images of detailed owls ranging from that wide eyed bird we all know and love, to the intense predator of the night.

When my dear friend from the UK told me she had mentioned my blog in an email to Millie Marotta, I nearly died. THEN when she responded back to my friend that she would look into it further and said "I hope it won't disappoint", I pretty much needed a defib to bring me back! I was so nervous! A few days went by, and just when i thought to myself, "she hated it", I received the email of a lifetime, FROM MILLIE!
Burnishing creates a smooth, glazed effect on a coloured area that can really enhance a picture. Applying heavy pressure is key to burnishing, allowing the wax to come together, covering all the pores of the paper and creating a slick looking surface. I've come to find there are many ways to burnish but these are my favorite ways of burnishing a coloured area: by using a white pencil, with heavier pressure of the same colour, and with a lighter shade of the same hue. Follow these tips to become a pro at burnishing!
Suzanne Houghton is quite honestly almost every craft hobbyist balled up into one woman. She crochets, paints, designs, and even has time to illustrate and create a wonderful colouring book! "Just Add Colour: An original colouring book for any age", NOT to be mistaken as a part of the Just Add Color Series by Sarah Walsh and Lisa Congdon, contains a variety of different drawings and patterns to colour. And I know I like my options. You'll never get bored because there is no underlying theme and you're not colouring the same things. Birds, flowers, houses, and even a chameleon hanging out on a branch, her illustrations are detailed, and just all around a joy to colour.
I'm Kourtney, and I'm a mother of two litle girls and the wife of a Navy sailor. I review colouring books and products for publishers and art supply companies to give my Coloristas a guide to buying and growing their collections. And of course I love to colour any chance I get (mostly when the kids are asleep!)
