The two cheeky monkeys and I are big fans of colouring in and I even have my set of Derwent colour pencils which my parents gave me for Christmas twenty years ago! Needless to say, the rise in gorgeous intricate, hand-illustrated colouring books for adults has been on my radar for some time. But I have studiously ignored it in the attempt to reign in my crafting/creative budget!
However, after a recent book sale, I finally caved and rewarded myself with a copy of Johanna Basford's Secret Garden. It is full of beautiful floral and entomological illustrations, and I have had fun slowly colouring in each little flower, leaf or insect (while madly trying to keep the little cheeky monkeys away from my book). So tell me, are you a fan of this new craze for "adult" colouring books (both of the handmade and big budget variety)?
