Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

The Creative Cat Coloring Book Review

Are you a creative individual who enjoys sitting down with books filled with beautiful illustrations, a set of pencils or markers and coloring to your heart’s content?

Purr-haps you love cats, art, books, and craft supplies and look for every opportunity to add to your prized collections?

Or maybe you’re an aspiring illustrator who loves to study the work of other artists to learn how they capture the beauty and majesty of their subjects through a few carefully rendered and lovingly placed pen strokes?

No matter where your interests lie, you’ll want to add the Creative Cat Coloring Book by Bernadette Kazmarski to your personal collection – and to give them as gifts to every cat lover and coloring enthusiast that you know!

Creative Cat Coloring Book Giveaway - Prizes

The Creative Cat Coloring Book is available as an individual coloring book and as a gift set that comes with the coloring book, watercolor pencils, paintbrush and sponge. The gift set is perfect for budding artists and adults who are re-discovering their love of coloring.

There are a number of features that make the Creative Cat Coloring Book special and set it apart from every other adult coloring book on the market!

First and foremost – unlike most of the nice but overly complex adult coloring books you frequently come across – the Creative Cat Coloring Book is a work of pure simplicity that captures the beauty, heart and spirit of the felines you love.

The book features a baker’s dozen of Bernadette’s favorite brush pen sketches that easily lend themselves to either loose or tight coloring. You can color inside or outside of the lines. You can even add your own details to the sketches!

Creative Cat Coloring Book - A Peek Inside

The Creative Cat Coloring Book is small – 4.25” x 5.5” inches – making it easy to fit in the palm of your hand and comfortably carry with you or place on your creative space, wherever that is. It’s the perfect size for a stocking stuffer as well!

More importantly, unlike most coloring books, the Creative Cat Coloring Book is designed with artists and crafters in mind. The spiral-bound book is printed on quality, heavy uncoated cardstock that’s designed to withstand whatever artistic medium you use or whatever embellishments you add. When you are done coloring, your artwork can easily be incorporated into a card, a journal, or any creative project that you choose.

For example, I used Colorbox Chalk Ink to lightly dust a touches of color across Mewsette Observing, one of the sketches in Bernadette’s book – selected embellishments and stamps that complemented the artwork – then created a lovely card. To see what you can do with Bernadette’s sketches, please visit my Pretty Kitty Card!

Now, I love all of these things about the Creative Cat Coloring Book – but the thing that I love most about this book is that it was created by our friend and fellow blogger Bernadette Kazmarski – an incredible writer, photographer, artist and animal lover who has dedicated her entire life to caring for, fostering, adopting, and rescuing cats.

To learn more about the Creative Cat Coloring Book, including exclusive peeks inside, artistic tips, and to order a coloring book or complete artistic set for yourself or someone special, visit Bernadette at The Creative Cat!

    This looks like a fun giveaway, would be great to win, perfect relaxing!! When I was journaling I loved using chalk and acrylic paints for my mediums.
    Hope you have a wonderful safe day!

      I love acrylic paints Karren but all of mine dried up and I have yet to replace them!
      I do have chalks which I am tempted to dig out to use on these illustrations –
      I almost used them for the card I’ll be sharing on my next post but then I used chalk ink instead.
      Best of luck to you – I know you would enjoy working with these!

  3. Michelle says:

    I love it because it has to do with cats! I’ll be keeping it for me and my daughter if I win!

      Ah, a cat lover – yes, I’d have to get extras as gifts, because I have trouble letting this paw-some gift set out of my sights as well! Best of luck to you Michelle – you and your daughter will love it! 🙂

  4. Oh I love the small size and simplicity of the images in this book. I love how you can get as detailed as you want or you can go freeform with the colors and both ways will look stunning. I love sitting down with a book and watercolor pencils while listening to an audiobook at the end of the day, there is nothing more soothing for me.

      Ang, you sound like a gal after my own heart!
      These images are an absolute joy to work with and since you can truly incorporate them into your own art,
      they facilitate your creativity in ways that traditional coloring does not!
      Best of luck to you and thanks for sharing your insights with us!

  5. That looks like a beautiful coloring book. Thanks for hosting! Have a terrific week!

  6. Emily says:

    What a cute coloring book! The illustrations are adorable.

  7. Anne says:

    This cat coloring book would be wonderful, soothing, special and give me the best therapy for my hands and mind. Since my wrist surgery and now hand therapy I have been having a tough time. This beautiful coloring book would lift my spirits and work wonders for my hands and give me hope and a creative interest. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway which is a treasure.

      Dear Anne,

      I am sorry to hear that you are having such a tough time after your wrist surgery.
      I hope that you recover soon!
      This would truly uplift your spirits and you would enjoy working with it so much –
      particularly because you wouldn’t have to worry about perfectly coloring within tiny spaces.
      As you can see, I just softly dabbed color on the image and it looks lovely –
      I’ll be sharing my card in a bit so you can better see what you can do with Bernadette’s images! 🙂

  8. Bernadette says:

    Ramona, thank you so much for this wonderful review! I love seeing what others have to say about my little coloring book, and I’m glad you had so much fun with it–new media, making cards, it’s exactly what I had in mind for those who would use it.

    I can’t wait to send a set to the winner! I’ll happily send one to anyone else if you just can’t wait!

      My pleasure Bernadette – working with your images is a pleasure – I am looking forward to incorporating them into my cards and other projects!

      Looking forward to seeing who the lucky winner is in a few weeks. Feel free to spread the word – I’ll be sharing my card with the image tomorrow! 🙂

      One of the things that I really like about this book Mary is that if you study the drawings,
      It inspires you to try your hand at sketching, even if you’ve never done it before!
      Best of luck to you!

  19. Pawsome coloring book and waterpencils. I think I will get myself a new hobby… besides sleeping 😉 Creative Pawkisses for a Happy WW 🙂 <3

    A cat coloring book. Now that is a great idea.

  26. Love the theme! I also like the simplicity, which allows artists to create a background or leave it simple. Good design.

  29. KT Fit Kitty says:

    I am a huge cat lover! This is an awesome giveaway! I love to colour with pencils but I’ve recently been using Zig markers and Bic Mark-its, but for this book, I would use my pencils. If I am lucky enough to win, I will keep it for myself since I love cats so much! I’m in Canada so I hope the giveaway is open outside the U.S. I can be reached at fitkitty1@gmail.com. Thanks so much!

  30. Robin says:

    Such a cute coloring book! I love the way the artist captured the feline personality. 🙂

  31. JP Anke says:

    I love that this book is about cats (of course!), that the binding is on the top and is spiral, and that there is plenty of space in the illustrations for me to get even more creative! I’ll keep it!

  32. Love your card & I am not even a cat person! Have a terrific Thursday (yes still getting around) donna #41

  33. Michelle says:

    What a fun little coloring book! I love cats, and I love to color with bright markers!

  35. Annie Lima says:

    What a fun little coloring book! I love cats, and I love to color with bright markers! But if I win this one, I’ll probably use it as a prize in my class store (I teach 5th grade, and I’m sure my students would love it).

  36. Alena Belleque says:

    I love the simplicity of the designs. If I win, I’ll give this to my cousin who adores cats and could use some cheering up lately.

  37. KENNETH OHL says:

    love to give this to my sister in law she is getting into coloring

  38. Jennie says:

    What a darling coloring book! I would probably give this to my mom, but goodness, I might keep it for a bit to practice my cat drawing. 🙂 🙂 Love this so much!

      I think you may just fall in love with it Jennie and have to buy one for your Mom!
      Speaking of love, your new book is awesome! 🙂
      Very few things that I purchase two of – LOVE it! 🙂

  39. Karen W says:

    Looks like a nifty coloring book. I think I would love to win it to give to my oldest daughter.
    Thanks for stopping by Tots and Me and linking up

  40. Hi, my peep should more colouring, well once we’ve mastered how to finish decorating projects that is! I do like the size of this, often they are too big for a bag but at this size my peep could take it places. purrs ERin

  41. Timmy Tomcat says:

    Dad just brought some pencils up from his office. They have been sitting in the drawer fur years. He also just got three nice little Cats with Hats coloring books from a project he backed on KickStarter. I will make sure he does at least 2 for each of the family.
    Thanks for helping us get him off his duff.

  42. Thanks for your generosity in this wonderful whimsical give away!! it’s adorable!

  43. Kitties Blue says:

    I have never really stopped coloring. I have always loved it and had a coloring book or two around. I have several now (all cats, of course). I like permanent markers best as the colors are so vibrant. Looks like a lot of entries, and we probably wouldn’t win so I will just plan to buy Bernadette’s coloring book. The card you made is terrific. Thanks for being part of blog hop, especially week #104. Hugs, Janet

      Well, it only takes one entry to win, Janet, but HURRAH to you for supporting Bernadette and buying her book!
      I’ve been coloring all of my life too – I remember DECADES ago when the first adult coloring books came out how thrilled I was!
      So glad you liked my card! 🙂

  44. Cool giveaway. I love the whimsy of the few pages you showed us & the idea of using it to make cards or other crafts. Id personally love this for myself but know a couple people who would enjoy it. My niece Jenna (9) or my bestie Susan. I know if she would color it though and that would give me an excuse to keep it for myself….

  45. Jean Dion says:

    What a wonderful book! I love to color, especially when my mind is full of work and I can’t seem to shut it down. Meditating with color helps me to get centered. And that’s the main reason I appreciate this book. It’s very zen! So many adult books are busy. I can’t see them helping me to feel calm. This will.

      You make such purr-fect points Jean! I have several adult coloring books that I can’t imagine trying to color in because they seem as relaxing as putting together a 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle! I LOVE doing puzzles but not when they are over the top!

      This was truly relaxing because you had one image to focus on and you could decide what you wanted to do with it and let your creative side run wild.

      Best of luck to you! 🙂
