Creative Haven Rose Windows

ISBN 139780486806426
Author/Editor Joel S. Avren
64 Pages

I was so surprised at the way the book looked when I received this it from Tracy McDonald of Dover Publishing for my review .  It looked as if it didn't need coloring but I turned the book over and read the direction and you use regular wax crayons to get it to come out to look like stained glass.  Colored one and I love it.  I held it up to the light and it really looks like stained glass.  If you want something different to color then you need to try this one.

Creative Haven Wildlife color by number

Color by Number Wildlife

Author Diego Jourdan Pereira

  • Series: Adult Coloring
  • Paperback: 96 pages
  • Publisher: Dover Publications;
  • ISBN-10: 0486798569
  • ISBN-13: 978-0486798561

  • The art in this book is very detailed so I don't think a young person could color it, I know a teen could but the finished pictures are so beautiful.  If you use markers instead of pencils the numbers want show through.  I have tried with pencils and even though you can blend those so well the only way you can use them is to take white out and cover all the numbers and that takes so much time I tried it.  I think if you take your time with these beautiful pages you will be very happy.  Thanks to Tracy McDonald, Customer Care Specialist. for Dover Publications.com for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Glitter paper dolls

    I give this book more than 5 Stars I love it!

    Dover Paper Dolls Series

    I love this book nothing like the paper dolls were back in my day, this one is so pretty with glitter on the clothes.  The only thing is that all have to carefully cut out so a grown up may need to help.  You have 6 dolls and can use the skin tone like your self, white or dark and they all just as beautiful as the next.  The little flower girl and ring barrier are so cute.  The brides have a lot of different changes of her wardrobe.  I just love this and it bring back so many memories as when I was a little girl. Wish you could click on the pages of the book and see the details.   Going to play with these with my great-granddaughter we will have a ball.  Thanks to

  •  Thanks so much to Tracy McDonald from Dover Publications for sending me this book in exchange for my review.  I want to tell everyone that this book is BEAUTIFUL but there is one small thing wrong with it, and that is the numbers show up with any medium that I tried.  On the left I did this one with colored pencils and a blender pen and it is so pretty but it not good to take from the book and frame because everything I tried the numbers still show through,  The one on the right I took white out tape and put over all the numbers and colored with gel pens, but it didn't turn out well either because of the white out.  I know I will enjoy this book so much just to color as with the numbers you know what color to use that it make the flowers pop. I choose these 2 pictures first as I love Roses but there are so many flowers in the book makes me feel happy.

    If you like a coloring book that is challenging then this is the book for you, it was sent to me for my honest review from Tracy McDonald at Dover Publications.  As you can see the picture that I colored I used shades of the same color and used a blending pen to shade it.  I love a hard book to color gives me more relaxation that something I can do in a few minutes.  I am a great-grandmother so I have time to enjoy my books.
