I have been a fan of coloring since I was a little girl. Give me a new box of Crayola crayons, and I’m a happy camper. As a teenager, I loved the “designs to color” books. I could sit and color those patterns for hours (I also adored Anatomy class because it included some very detailed coloring pages – that made me happy!)
In other words, I’ve been coloring since long before the Adult Coloring Book craze hit! But, I’m glad that there are so many cool coloring books available for adults now! I have a few of them and, when I’m feeling frustrated or like I need to stop and just chill, I’ll grab one of my books and my box of colored pencils and sit and color for awhile.
Zondervan recently released a coloring book of Bible verses, and I was really excited to get my hands on it.
Just look at that cover! Makes you want to get your hands on it too, doesn’t it?
As the cover states, there are 30 pages in this book and each page has a Scripture verse prominently displayed on it.
The designs range for simple to pretty complex. The two that I’ve worked on so far were simple enough to do with my Crayola Twistables [aff]; but many of them will require the use of colored pencils [aff](which are sharper).
The image above is the first one that I colored. As you can see, it’s a more geometric pattern. It bothered me a bit that it wasn’t centered, but it was still fun to color.
I love how the verses are so large – they truly are the focus of the page.
The designs are all very different. The one I’m currently working on is more floral in mature (reminds me of retro daisies!)
I love coloring. It’s relaxing and therapeutic. The designs allow for creativity and individuality. My coloring page will look very different from yours, and that’s awesome!
As you can see in the image above, there is a dotted line along the left side of the page. This is nice and all, but I’d much prefer they actually be perforated for easier removal from the book.
The pages are only one-sided, so you can remove the pictures and use them in frames, etc. without waste. This is also nice because you can use other mediums – such as fine-tipped markers – and not worry about the colors bleeding through.
I’d definitely recommend this coloring book. It’s available at Amazon.com. [aff]
