Colouring book

I love to colour. I have all sorts of coloured pencils and markers and pens. I just bought this new colouring book Secret Garden by Scottish artist Johanna Basford. Her ink pen work is amazing. By colouring you get to really see and appreciate all the amazing details in her work.

I coloured the title page using Staedtler Karat Aquarell watercolour pencils and also Col-Erase Prismacolor pencils.
