Diva Delight: Secret Garden and Christmas to Color

We are all coloring our heads off this holiday season. Check out these two beauties!



The first is Secret Garden, Artist's Edition, by Johanna Basford. There are 20 drawings to remove, color, and frame. The paper is heavy stock, and you are going to love the imagery collected from her two previous works, Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest. These images were considered the most popular and the larger format awaits your color. Laurence King creates such exquisite works for readers.





This beautiful coloring is from YATOPIA.



The second is Christmas to Color from HarperCollins by Mary Tanana. This one has imagery on both sides of the pages. The holiday theme makes it perfect to leave out on the coffee table for any in the mood to relieve a little stress and express themselves. I had guests coloring during Thanksgiving. Such a fun way to bring together family and friends.

   

Find your fancy and crack open your Crayolas this holiday season!

I have The Secret Garden on my Christmas wish list. I'm currently working on the Harry Potter coloring book. Thanks for these reviews!
