This is my latest completed double page spread in my adult colouring book, Ivy & The Inky Butterfly by Scottish illustrator, Johanna Basford. I used Staedtler ergo soft pencils, Faber Castelle Aquarelle pencils and Staedtler fine-liner pens.
This book by Johanna is a beautifully illustrated story book filled with enchantment and wonder, and lots of ‘goodies’ to colour such as jewels, butterflies, flora and fauna, treasure, owls, toadstools and even a few dragons, to name but a few!
I completed this picture today after being sent home early from work as we are experiencing a snow blizzard!! Just the right thing to turn a chilly snow day into a cosy relaxing afternoon. I hope the colours and Johanna’s beautiful illustrations bring a smile to your face. xx

Oh geez, how did I not know she had a new book out. This is beautiful – love the colors you’re using
Thank you so much Jen 🙂 Are you a fan of Johanna Basford’s work? She has a web page with a colouring gallery so that’s always inspiring to see what other people are doing – and to keep up to date with her new books and projects! 🙂
