Do you colour?

Hello my name’s Claire Brewster and I like colouring books.

I thought I was the only one then I read thisthis and apparently they are huge in France. So I’m not the only one.  There are a huge selection of colouring books out there that are really exciting.

I love spending time colouring, it is very relaxing.  I like being able to think about colour and shapes and how they work together.  It is a very stimulating way to spend an evening.  Have you ever given it a go?  Would you?

I started with


My Wonderful World of Fashion by Nina Chakrabarti.  I actually bought it for my niece first, when I was flicking through it I decided I needed one for myself.

I then got


Secret Garden by Johanna Basford.

My most recent purchase is



This is the most obvious adult one, the other 2 are aimed more generally.  I am all set now, between the 3 of them I have plenty of material to colour in.

I’m strictly a felt tip pen girl.  I’ve tried coloured pencils but they just don’t work for me.  I need the vibrancy of felt tip pens. What do you use?

If you’ve got any recommendations please do share.
