Hello and welcome to "Creative Coloing Week" on the Tombow Blog!  Adult coloring books are super hot right now so we are having a blast with them this week!

We all got 3 of  Joanne Fink's "Zenspirations" coloring books (Inspirations, Flowers and Abstract). Joanne is an amazing artist!  She says "These coloring books are designed for people to add their own patterns and embellish the illustrations as well as coloring."  She also has 2 new books coming out in October "Birds and Butterflies" and "Expressions of Faith", which will be available for pre-order on Amazon next month! Sweet!
I used a page from the "Abstract" book.  It was soooo much fun to play with!

Here is the cover of the book and the page I used.


I started by coloring the whole page using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Or, if you'd rather, you can doodle first and then color it in.

Then, I used 2 Tombow Markers to doodle.  I used the black Tombow Dual Brush Pen and the black Tombow Twin Permanent Marker.  They are both great for doodling.  Each has a different point so you can doodle with different tip sizes.  The Dual Brush Pen has a brush tip and a fine tip and the Twin Marker has a fine and a broad tip.

I had soooo much fun coloring and doodling!  I hope you do some creative coloring of your own!  And a HUGE special Thank You to Fox Chapel Publishing for giving us these coloring books!!  Did you know Fox Chapel Publishing also publishes our Signature Designer Marie Browning's books?  If you haven't seen Marie's books, click the link to check them out!  They are AWESOME!!



  1. Yes, coloring is all the rage and how fun for us "oldsters" to be coloring once again. Of course some of us have never stopped coloring. Your abstract page with the doodles is uber fun! Keep coloring your world my friend. High on Life July...

  2. Joanne is fantastic, I even follow her blog, and own one of her books.

    Coloring books are SO back in style again!!

    Your page looks gorgeous.

  3. How fun, think I might have to have a adult coloring book!
