Inkspirations: Fruit of the Spirit - illustrated by Lorrie Bennett - Review AND Giveaway

Do you colour? I loved to colour as a child. I was somewhat sceptical when adult colouring books became a 'thing'. But then I tried it - and discovered that I still enjoyed it very much. And yes, I found it relaxing!

Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit: Coloring Designs to Nourish You with Love, Joy, Faith, Peace and More with illustrations by Lorrie Bennett is my latest colouring book.

Spirit is a faith based colouring book, with each line drawing accompanied by a quote from the scriptures. Words to ponder as you colour. Words everyone can take to heart and live by. Bennett's illustrations perfectly complement the quotes.

When I was young, I was a 'don't go out of the lines' colourer (is that even a word?). I wanted my finished product to be perfect. And I would colour the pages in order. Well, I'm way beyond that now - if I slip a bit, it doesn't bother me. Now, I just jump in, picking a page and colours that appeal to me. My effort is on the right here.

For those of you who would like a little direction, the first few pages discuss colouring tips and tools, how to choose colours, colours that harmonize and picking your palette. The binding allows the pages to lay flat, but the pages are also perforated, allowing for easy tear-out.

Spirit is just one in a line of colouring books from HCI Books. Check out the entire line of colouring books as well as their greeting cards.  HCI  Books also has a private labeling program for an Inkspirations coloring book designed personally for your organization. You can find Inkspirations on their website and follow them on Facebook and share your work on their Instagram.

"Lorrie Bennett is blessed to live her life as an artist, crafter, teacher, graphic designer, and best of all, a mother. She is passionate about the divine inspiration that is the source of her creativity, and the happiness and beauty that it can bring to others."
