Coloring Book Reviews: Atelie Fashion, Color Me Mindful Seasons, and In Bloom!

Right before Christmas I was lucky enough to get my hands on this trio of adult coloring books from Simon and Schuster and I'm finally, finally getting around to reviewing them.  A HUGE thank you to the publisher for sending them to me - I can't wait to fill the pages with beautiful colors!

This one might be my favorite of the three.  It's mostly patterns, with a slightly Russian influence in some places, but mostly just full of whimsy.  It's pretty divided between more simplistic patterns that will color quickly and intricate designs that will take me longer, which I like.

Color Me Mindful: Seasons starts with the New Year and takes you right through to Christmas.  It tends to be more intricate and the style reminds me somewhat of Johanna Basford's work, which is always nice.  

This is the only one I've had a chance to finish a page of yet, and I'm loving it.  Its pictures are less intricate, which makes them great for coloring when I want to finish something in one sitting instead of taking a few days to work on it.  I also like the botanical theme and the stylized artwork.

Thanks again to Simon and Schuster for sending these!
