Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Color your favorite Scriptures from the Bible with beautiful illustrations and tips!August 17, 2016Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Who would have ever thoughts that coloring books would be making a come back in a big way, and not just for kids, but for adults? I love coloring and doodling and as a corporate trainer for over 10 years, I understand the amount of learning that still happens when the mind is engaged in this type of activity, despite how it looks. It is also soothing and relaxing at the same time, while creating a creative outlook for those who choose to pick up their media of choice, whether crayons, coloring pencils, water colors, paint or markers, the results are amazing.
I am so please to introduce you to Ink Inspirations Fruit of the Spirit, Coloring Book by Health Communications Inc and Lorrie Bennett who designed the artwork you will find tucked inside. Beautiful illustrations accompany so of the best Scriptures from the Bible and I have added my own flair and creativity in Isaiah 43:2 "When you go through deep waters I will be with you." Such a powerful truth we can apply to whatever situation we find ourselves facing, knowing the God is always our present resource we can depend on.
The coloring book also shares some great features like coloring tips and tools, and knowing which ones to use and where, to how to decide what colors to use, from primary colors, secondary colors and tertiary color choices. My favorite was the Harmony How-To's which show you how certain colors within a color pallet can play off of each other picking shades either lighter or darker and use them together to create a blended effect. The coloring books also shares some of the same pages colored by a variety of talented artists so you can see how the pages might look before you begin for some creative ideas.
There are 32 full color pages, with another 32 more with some designs on the adjoining pages to give you a smaller pattern to complete. Illustrator Lorrie Bennett thoughtfully pairs stunning original art with powerful scriptures that eloquently embody the fruit of the Spirit, inviting you to immerse yourself in the meaning of the messages and cultivate them in everyday life. With perforated pages for framing or sharing, this is the perfect way to relax and unwind as you create beautiful works of art while rejoicing in the blessings of the Holy Spirit.
I received Ink Inspirations Fruit of the Spirit by Lorrie Bennett compliments of Health Communications Inc and TLC Book Tours for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from complimentary copy of the coloring book in exchange for my unbiased and personal opinion of the product. What I love is that depending on your color medium, (mine were gel pen based) I didn't experience any bleed through on the subsequent pages. I would have like to have seen blank pages on the backs so if there were bleed through issues depending on the type of medium you employ, you wouldn't ruin the other designs. That being said, I would rate this coloring book a 4 out of 5 stars and think the design choices compliment the scriptures perfectly.
Just Commonly4 Stars Out Of 5Great start for beginner who want to start coloring!August 12, 2016Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Inkspirations: Fruit of the Spirit Adult Coloring book is the latest of a series of coloring books with original artwork by Lorrie Bennett. I was quite intrigued by this trend from the get go, but can never get myself to really indulge in it. I have several coloring books, and I find the act of just perusing them can be therapeutic as well, despite not coloring them just yet. With Inkspirations, the artwork comes alongside a corresponding Biblical verse. Rather, the artwork corresponds with the provided Biblical verse, and that makes it ever more enjoyable.
In Inkspirations, it starts off with a page of simple techniques for beginners, and then a sample of other's colored production of the pages within this book. This one definitely is for beginners with strong and heavy lined drawings to get you started. However, even though the illustrations in Inkspirations are tailored towards beginners, I find its over-drawn details unnecessary. The lines provide depth and shading to the illustrations, but it takes away from the reader/colorist to attempt to play with it. As you can see from the example above, even the leaves are heavily lined. Otherwise, I think this would be a great start to a wonderful hobby.
