TLC Book Tours Review: Inkspirations

About Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit: Coloring Designs to Nourish You with Love, Joy, Faith, Peace and More

Series: Inkspirations
Paperback: 72 pages
Publisher: HCI (August 9, 2016)
Every Christian knows that putting the Fruit of the Spirit into practice takes a daily effort and commitment, and it takes a lifetime to master any one of them, let alone all nine. In this new coloring book for adults, Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit celebrates these powerful virtues that help to fortify us throughout life’s joys and challenges.
Each empowering verse alongside inspiring images reminds us of how acts of kindness, gentleness, or self-control can make a difference, not only in our own lives, but more importantly, in the lives of others. The more we focus and allow God to work in us, the more His spirit can shine through us.
Illustrator Lorrie Bennett is known for painting vintage Bibles. Dating back to the early 1900s, many of her Bibles have been discarded because they are so worn. Inspired by the thought that the Bibles provided spiritual guidance for generations of people, she decided to give them new life by using them as canvases for her unique artwork. This style is adapted to many of the coloring pages within Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit, so that the Word of God becomes a literal and figurative backdrop for your creations. Now you can color your day brighter, turning your art into meaningful and memorable keepsakes that show God’s Love and Grace.
Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit includes:
  •   More than 30 original works of art to uplift and inspire
  •   Empowering scriptures for individual or group reflection and meditation
  •   Special binding that allows for pages to lay flat for a better work surface
  •   Perforated edges make it easy to tear and share finished colored pieces

Review: I've always wanted to get an adult coloring book. This one was my first. I went out and carefully found some colored pencils so I could get started on my projects.

This particular book has bible verses and inspirational sayings on each page. I don't consider myself religious by any means, but the fallen away Catholic in me felt good reading them, as I tried to chose which image to color first

The images on the pages range from the easy to color to the more challenging and intricate, so there's something for the beginner to the more accomplished artist on these pages.

Here's my work in progress.

Like the anal retentive person I am, I started with the first one in the book. It isn't an easy one either, which is why its taking me so long. (I think I may have to buy some more materials).

I think this may be my new hobby.  (And I really want the Cat Inkspiration book!!!)
