If you love how black backgrounds make adult coloring pages pop, you’ll love Sue Chastain’s newest book OrnaMENTALS: Lights Out. The 8 1/2″ x 11″ book includes 40 single sided pages with original illustrations on dramatic black backgrounds. Subjects include patterns, flowers, butterflies, hearts, leaves, snowflakes, and more with simple to moderately intricate levels of difficulty. Some of the illustrations in OrnaMENTALS: Lights Out are slightly remixed versions of the designs found in Sue’s earlier books, but the majority are completely new.
I’ve been using colored pencils on my pages, but glitter gel pens would be fabulous with this book. Using neon highlighters on the patterned images so they glow under a black night would be another fun technique to try.
