This coloring book is smaller book filled with 28 fun and festive Christmas Designs. I have this and Christmas Coloring Book (a full size coloring book) both just released by Thaneeya McArdle. At first glance, one would think that a number of these designs are simply scaled down versions of what is in the larger format book. While that may be true for a few, there are a good number that are simply similar and have details that range from slightly to very different from the other book. There is a lovely range of designs, including Santas, elves, Christmas trees, stockings, fireplace and mantle and even a nutcracker (one of my favorites and the one I will color first.)The size of this book is perfect for fitting in my purse, backpack, etc. to take along with a set of colored pencils. The book is also a great size to use as a stocking stuffer gift. It, along with an inexpensive set of colored pencils, would be a good Secret Santa gift exchange present.In addition to the designs, the artist has included lessons in patterning, color techniques and media as well as basic color theory at the front of the book, along with some great color examples (some of which I will show in my attached video.) The lessons are generic to the line but the samples are specific to this book.The pages are white and are perforated for easy removal. The designs are printed on one side only with holiday and inspiration quotes on the back side. Many of the quotes are from holidays songs and movies which are really fun to read – especially the movie quotes as they bring to mind the whole story. Below the quotes are lines which the colorist can use to journal their own thoughts and feelings.All of my markers and gel pens wick through these pages. If I use either of them, I will put a piece of thicker paper (chipboard, cardstock, etc.) or freezer paper under the page I am working on to keep the following page from getting ink on it.
