Are you ready to nourish your inner artist? Have fun and relax during your free time while taking your coloring to another level with this new and exciting Ruby Charm Colors Adult Coloring Art Journal designed especially for pencil-loving colorists!

Have you ever been nervous about starting a new coloring page? Afraid to ruin a design before you even begin? This unique art journal filled with distinctive line art gives you the freedom to explore, experiment and test out your ideas on smaller fragments of the art before committing to the larger plates. With a balanced mix of details and open spaces, the illustrations give beginners and more experienced colorists plenty of room to play inside and outside the lines.

Once you fill this interactive book with your own notes and colored swatches, it just might become your go-to book when you want to remember how you colored something that turned out really well, or which blending techniques or mix of pencils and colors gave you the results you wanted. It's your book to personalize and store all your treasured coloring ideas. And you can apply your notes from this art journal to coloring pages in other coloring books in your collection, too!

This 140 page 8.5 x 11 inch book features:

• a velvety, matte black cover with art colored by the artist and three selected fan colorings on the back cover
• 22 full illustration plates featuring unique and fanciful line drawings of flora and fauna
• Black-backed plates with room to write your name
• 43 art journal pages featuring places to write, create and track color swatches, and experiment with colors on pieces of art pulled from the plates so you can truly visualize how an idea or palette of colors will work
• snippets from the artist about her inspiration for each illustration
• 17 pages of essential coloring tips handy for beginners but also useful for more experienced colorists to review
• 2 mandala-style color wheels to fill out using your own pencil brands for better understanding of basic color theory

• 11 note pages
• 24 thumbnail images of the illustrations included in Volume 2

*** Colored pencils are recommended!
*** Not recommended for heavy markers like Copics or Sharpies as bleeding will occur.
*** Watercolor pencils and watercolors are fine, though saturating the pages with water are not advised.

The artist/author encourages colorists to feel free to make copies of the plates (for personal use only) to experiment with color pallets, try art on different types of paper and card stock with different media (like markers and watercolor), and to keep a clean copy of the illustration in tact for future coloring projects.

*** The pages in this book are not perforated, but you may carefully score them with a ruler and blade for removal.

Previously RubyCharmColors' collection of line art was only to be found as PDF downloads on Etsy and it is now with great joy that we see vol 1 of what I can only hope to be an ever-growing collection. It is a colouring book with a difference though, as it is also a journal for your colouring journey, it contains tips and ticks and also colouring charts and wheels to help you along the way. The paper has pretty good tooth and holds up well to the rigours of blending and burnishing. With 22 beautifully illustrated plates and space to make notes about your technique and colour choice as well as an introduction to each piece of line art this book is a must for all adult colouring enthusiasts.
