Modern Elegance Coloring Book Blog Hop

We're excited to be part of the blog hop introducing Amanda Murphy's coloring book, Modern Elegance, from C&T Publishing! If the cover art looks familiar to you, it's because the design is from Amanda's Carina collection.


We've paired up a few of our favorite Carina fabric prints with their corresponding coloring book pages. This book gives you the chance to play fabric designer--let your inner child go wild with color and experiment! What color palette would you put together?

Heart to Heart:

We had fun using bright Gelly Roll pens to color in the focal heart print:



Entwined:

Imagine this Entwined print done in a rainbow of colors!



Diamonds:

Do up the Diamond print any way you like.


Grown-up coloring books are such fun--page after page of creative inspiration, ready for you to color any way you like! And did we mention that Amanda's book is available as a book or as an ebook?

For a chance to win a copy of Modern Elegance (hard copy within the U.S.; ebook internationally), leave a comment below letting us know which of the three designs we showed you'd most like to color. This giveaway is open through December 7th at 11:59 pm EST. We'll randomly select a winner from the comments and announce it here on the blog.

  4. I would choose Heart to Heart because it would be fun to use lots of colors. When I was young my grandmother gave me books called Altair Designs that I loved to color. These new coloring books for grown ups remind me of them.
