My husband bought me a colouring book with beautiful patterns. It really helped me relax before sleep and get all the nasty thoughts out of my head.
About Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest and Colouring Book
Stress anxiety insomnia and depression can have a major impact on your recovery. Colouring is proven to be a very relaxing activity that helps deal with these issues. This stunning new book by Johanna Basford takes readers on an inky quest through an enchanted forest to discover what lies in the castle at its heart. As well as drawings to complete, colour and embellish, there are hidden objects to be found along the way including wild-flowers, animals and birds, gems, lanterns, keys and treasure chests. Beginning at the entrance to the forest, the journey progresses through woodland, rocky caves and tree-lined mazes, over streams and a waterfall, across the trees tops, to finally reach the castle. Also hidden throughout the book are nine symbols. Readers must find all the symbols to unlock the castle door at the end of the quest and discover what lies within.
Love this colouring book. Its an 'enchanted forest' so you can let your imagination run riot with the colour schemes. The pages are thick with no bleed through with felt tip pens. I use the Steadtler Triplus, Fineliners (particularly good for the intricate bits) and the Ergo soft pencil crayons. A very relaxing pastime!
Let me start by saying, this book is a thing of beauty, from its intricate designs, printed with strong lines and clear ink work, down yo the quality of the paper. Oh what paper,!! It's so soft, silky and smooth it makes me want to stroke it. Due to the intricacies of the design fine liners or very sharp pencils maybe required, I personally use steadtler Norris club 144 pencils, and the steadtler triplus 323 pens, both of which are relatively cheap, yet excellent quality, there's is no bleed through of ink on the pages, and they take colour very well, The only very small grip I have is that on the double spread pages, it can be difficult to colour into the "crease" of the book, perhaps not a "biggie" bit it kinda bothers me to know if left bits uncoloured! Seriously.... Buy this book!!
