Johanna’s Christmas

I wasn’t able to find a copy of Johanna Basford’s Johanna’s Christmas in town, but I was able to order it from Amazon at a great price (£5 instead of £12.99), but that did give the disadvantage of not knowing what the book would be like until it arrived.

The pages are quite thick, with 37 one-sided images to colour (the reverse side of each image has a generic Christmassy pattern, which can also be coloured if you feel so inclined). The pages are also perforated, so you can remove them from the book once they’re coloured – or even remove them to use paints without the risk of getting paints or water over the other pages.

I used Staedtler fineline pens and a couple of metallic gel pens from Paperchase just to liven things up a little. I’m not sure if the background needs some colouring pencil shading or not….
