New Colour-in Products

I am such a fan of the colouring products that are available now. I think I have had more enjoyment from Johanna Basford's 'Secret Garden' than my daughter has! The thought of colour in gift wrap from makers such as Claire Close sets my imagination alight & the colour-in wallpaper is just too much, can you imagine how controlling I'd be?!! - "children it may be for your walls but this paper is for Mummy to colour only!!" 



Maybe it's with these influences around me & my very own children loving to colour too that my new range has been created.

I have had the idea for my colour-in dolls for almost a year now & it has taken this long to make them a reality & I look forward to sharing them with you very soon. However the first of the colour-in products to be launched are my colour-in necklaces & key rings.



It is very important to me to encourage crafting in littluns. Watching my own children & the sense of accomplishment they have in a finished piece is fantastic! But I also know how important it is to keep things simple & easy for them in order to achieve this!

The colour-in accessories all co-ordinate with the colour-in dolls perfectly & so as a set is great to watch the girls in particular play with, & wear pieces they have coloured.




They can be coloured in using soft coloured pencils, felt pens, gel pens, glitter pens, paints & even with various papers! It really is dependent on the crafter, their craft ability level, & more importantly their imagination! 










They are a great idea for party favours (& dare I mention at this time of year - stocking fillers?!)

To keep the pieces perfect after decoration a thin coat of varnish could be applied but dependent on use this is not a necessity.

Prices start from just £3.50 & are available from www.etsy.com/UK/shop/ABOEdesigns.
