I love a colouring book. I always have done and in recent years they have taken off in a big way, there are colouring books to suit all ages, mood. They can be a way to ease stress, calm your busy mind or just have some fun.
I got the MoYou London Colouring book in my Christmas Stocking last year. It is still available on the website, costing £6.99. It is 15cm x 15cm and has 32 illustrated pages for you to colour in. One afternoon a few weeks ago me and Figaro settled ourselves down for a few hours of colouring in armed with a cup of tea and a tub full of coloured pens.
The pages are relatively thick so regular coloured pens do not bleed through the paper (Sharpies do however, so bear that in mind when you pick your weapon of colouring choice).
The illustrations for you to colour in are lovely. Some are based on the stamping plates they have. Some designs are more intricate than others, there really is something to suit every mood.
The pages are double sided so if you do happen to use a Sharpie, you are not really going to be able to use the page immediately behind it. I had a look through the book and settled on a picture to colour – a little galatic scene! The pages can be pulled out individually as well, so if you find it easier to colour a single page rather than in the book you can.
The paper is smooth, so the pens don’t scratch on the surface and create that weird bobbly pen/paper residue. The colours don’t bleed across the paper either – much easier to stay within the lines! The page pulls pretty easily out of the book so you can display your design when you have finished!
All in all this is very nice little colouring book. It’s compact size means that you can easily slip it into a bag and enjoy colouring on the move – probably not whilst driving but definitely on a plane or train journey. It’s a good price for a good amount of different scenes to colour on good quality paper stock. You could also draw alot of inspiration from the book for your next MoYou mani!
