The grown up colouring trend is taking the country by storm at the moment. I love it as a way to relax, and have noticed so many of my friends getting into the colouring habit too. And who can blame them – why should the children get all the fun? Colouring in is the perfect relaxing creative activity for all ages!

Fabriano Boutique in Covent Garden have got involved with the colouring trend too and they are hosting an Enchanted Forest colouring competition to coincide with National Stationery Week.

If you are in London then pop into the store and pick up pick up your choice of Enchanted Forest colouring sheet beautifully printed on high quality Fabriano Woodstock Betulla paper. This is an acid free, chlorine free paper with a considerable recycled content, FSC certified and chosen for use with crayons, pencils and inks. If you’re not local and still want to join in, then I have a downloadable version of one of the sheets that I’m able to share with you (see the end of this post to download)

The competition is judged by Johanna Basford, the illustrator of The Enchanted Forest and her previous best selling grown up colouring book The Secret Garden.
