I have been eagerly anticipating this first ever issue of The Coloring Studio, published by Stampington Company. For one thing, I knew that two of my coloring pages were to be included…
But I was also excited to see just what Stampington would come up with! All of their publications are of the highest quality, and so informative and this new magazine (more like a book) even surpasses my high expectations!
It is so much more than a coloring book! Every page has an artist designed coloring page on one side and the facing pages are full of all kinds of useful information and images! The pages themselves are of sturdy high quality mixed media ready paper. Sometimes magazine prices make me gulp, but this one is truly worth the money!
There are all kinds of neat projects to do with your coloring pages, complete with instructions. There are pages dedicated to color theory, simple book binding, zentangle and more! I love how this Chickadee Tea page by Cheryl Lacy was used on an art journal page by Mou Saha! I think some of these pages will be showing up in my own art journals now!
I have found all the information on pens, pencils and markers to be very beneficial. The neat projects to do with your coloring pages are inspiring! They come complete with clear instructions, and include information on color theory, simple book binding, zentangle, shading, and more! The pages on hosting a coloring party have inspired me to do exactly that in January! I can’t wait!
The pages with comments and advice from the artists are fun and informative. I am thrilled to be rubbing print shoulders with so many greats…. Joanne Sharpe, Suzi Blue, and many, many more talented artists contributed to this magazine, making every single page a quality coloring page!
All in all, this has got to be one of the best coloring books out there! I promptly ordered one for a gift (shhh!) as soon as I saw mine…. like the same day!
Now for the really great part! Stampington Company is generously providing a FREE issue for me to give away to the name randomly drawn from among the comments on this post!
