My review is based on the PDF digital download which Christine kindly gave me.   I had it printed and spiral bound at Officeworks, Australia on 100gsm paper.   The paper I printed on is suitable for colored pencils.  ,  I will probably print individual pages on watercolor paper, as I feel many of these pages would look fabulous with that medium.


Happy coloring x

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
