What a pretty book! Such a great coloring book and introduction to hand lettering. The size is generous which I like for relaxed coloring. The drawings are varied and beautiful. There are many scripture verses and quotes through out which add to the calming space this book offers. I really like that at the back of the book is a hand lettering alphabet you can print for practice. There is a little bit of instruction in the beginning of book as well, but the best way to learn lettering is to just practice. This would make a wonderful gift. Highly recommend! *This book was given to me by BookLookBloggers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.*
I love to sketch and color. It's really relaxing and allows my brain to dump my worries to the side and just focus on the art. That's the idea behind adult coloring books. From the series, Jesus Calling, comes the coloring book in the same vein, with encouraging words and verses throughout. These aren't simple coloring pages that one might find in a children's coloring book. They are intricate and beautiful on their own, devoid of color, but I can imagine how gorgeous they'd look when full of color. The pages are filled with flora or fauna. The cover is really attractive with metallic blue highlights. The book is 10 x 10" size. The font is large enough for most readers and the coloring shouldn't be too difficult for most. The back page is a hand lettering practice page. If you aren't a fan of journalling in your Bible, but like the colorful ideas behind it, this would be the next best option. To color with marker or colored pencil? That's the question. The pages feel thick enough, but on trying it, Sharpies definitely bleed through and standard markers come close (you can see a hint of the color but it hasn't actually gone through). I'd recommend using high quality colored pencils and perhaps place card stock or a piece of cardboard between pages as you're coloring in order to ensure the other pages remain clean until you're ready to color them. This book normally retails for $20, but is being sold on most websites for $10. I think this would make a nice gift for anyone, family or friends, believers and nonbelievers alike. Sure, it has Bible verses, but it also has some encouragement. We can all benefit from that these days, right? I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
So I’ll be honest. I’m new to the world of coloring and truthfully I could use your advice. I was thrilled to get the chance to review “Jesus Calling Creative Coloring and Hand Lettering” because I truly am new to this form of creativity and the book itself is so inspiring. As much as I love creating art in my Bible through Bible Journaling, I’ve never even tried diving into a coloring book. The truth is the title “Jesus Calling” really drew me to this one since my Mom has been really enjoying a Jesus Calling devotional and then the inclusion of “hand lettering” in the subtitle confirmed it for me. I have really wanted to expand my ability in the hand lettering department and I wondered if maybe this might help. When the book arrived I was thrilled with the quality of printing and the overall layout of the book. This would make an excellent gift for someone in your life. I’ve thought of several ladies who I would like to pass on a copy. In my circle of friends we have been talking a lot about self care and about a handful of spiritual disciplines including solitude and Lectio Divina. We have been exploring how powerful quiet time with God and ourselves can be to stripping away the non essential things in our lives and how imperative it is we recognize who God created us to be and how He wants us to use ourselves and our time. I can see this coloring book being a tool to help keep my mind focused during these kinds of practices. I can also see it as a fun past time during other mindless activities. That being said this book is a beautiful tool and I hope you will pick one up. I was particularly pleased with the variety I found in the illustrations, the styles of each page vary and I loved the Scripture passages and quotes chosen for the hand lettering passages. I love that some are based on things in nature while others are beautiful tributes to a variety of elements of faith and tradition like stained glass windows. I do think this will be a great place for me to learn more about hand lettering and to practice a new font. Which I am excited to transfer into my Bible Journaling. I have quite a few tools I pulled out to aid me in my first pages, but the truth is I am not certain what the best kinds of mediums for this particular creative outlet actually are. For those of you who have colored in “adult coloring books” before do you have recommendations. I utilized some great tools I had on hand like my Crayola Twistable Crayons and my Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens. I also pulled out my favorite Faber Castell Pitt Pen (Big Brush) that will be great for the hand lettering pages. But I’d love your insights and advice on your favorite coloring tools for these kinds of coloring books. (I worry about bleed through since the pages are double sided) I do plan to pull out my Prisma colored pencils and try those too. I want to explore a variety of mediums without feeling like I’ve ruined the pages of this beautiful book. It’s funny to me how I am less timid in my own Bible and in blank spaces then I have been in this book. Tips welcomed! I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review. I’m so grateful for the chance to try something new to me!
