As you might know, I am a huge fan of colouring in for adults. I find it relaxing and helps me switch off from the intensity of everyday life. I have been working with the wonderful Tasha from Tasha Goddard Illustrates since the beginning of my journey into adult colouring and I am delighted to be sharing with you a free Happy Weekend colouring page, but even more exciting some amazing greetings cards by Cardooo which are illustrated by Tasha.
Free Happy Weekend Adult Colouring Page
I have been sent a set of the greetings cards and I have to say they are beautiful. They have done a superb job of showcasing Tasha’swonderful illustrations on the front highlighting them with gold foil.Each card opens out into an eight page booklet, which is packed with a variety of pictures and patterns for hours of colouring fun. Each
Each card is blank for the senders’ own message making them suitable for all occasions or just because. The quality of the cards is amazing, with fantastic cardstock meaning no bleed through.

To celebrate the launch I am delighted that Tasha is sharing with us a free Happy Weekend adult colouring page.
I love this Free Happy Weekend Colouring Page, it is simple enough to get the kids involved, but you could also add more and embellish it yourself.
In addition to the free happy weekend adult colouring page, I am also delighted to have a set of the greetings cards to give away to one lucky reader.

I am often asked what products I use and I am a big advocate of using the best supplies you can afford. It is really frustrating to use pencils that keep snapping or refuse to blend well, oh and don’t get me started on pens that bleed through the paper. I always buy the best quality I can afford, not just for me but for my kids too. I want colouring to be a joyful experience. These are mine and the
These are mine and the MiniMad’s suggestions to you. Our tried and tested favourites. When I first started colouring I just pinched the boy’s products, which is why adult colouring is so accessible and over the period of a year I now have my own supplies!
We are currently loving using Staedtler Triplus colour pens (UK Link/US Link) – they do not bleed through the paper, which is great for adults and kids and they are really bright. Plus you can get different nib sizes (UK LInk/US Link), my niece has the 3mm nib ones (I bought her them for Christmas and she adores them). I also love the way they stand up in the packaging, so you can see the colours.
For a more inexpensive pen, we like the BIC kids coloring pens. These are great with minimal bleed through the paper and last for ages if you forget to put the lid back on (yes I am guilty of this)! (UK Link/US Link).
Again we have two distinct favourites. One high quality and the other medium. Staedtler Ergosoft pencils are great value. They are soft and blendable and last really well. These are our go to pencils for pretty much everything (UK Link/US Link), they are not paying me to say this – honest! These are the pencils that the boys use for all their work and colouring too.
If money was no object then it would be Prismacolor pencils. I was introduced to these by the amazing illustrator Jennie Maizels (go check out her sketchbook club, you can thank me later). They are blendable, fantastic colours, durable and everything you could need, but are at the top of the price range. (UK Link/US Link)
As you are printing off these pages you can control the quality of the paper and unlike colouring books that you buy, you can print one sided (whoop). I print a lot of my pages on standard copier paper and if you have good quality art supplies then that is fine, however, if you are planning on framing or keeping your artwork then it would be better to print on a higher quality of paper. Or if you plan on painting them, then you can print onto inkjet watercolour paper (UK Link/US Link). For standard colouring get some bleed proof paper and use it to print off your pages (UK Link/US Link).
You need to have a good quality pencil sharpener for your pencils. I LOVE my standard office supplies one. It can be adjusted to sharpen to a killer point or to a more blunt edge and there is something therapeutic about the crank handle and all the shavings being collected (UK Link/US Link)! We use a Staedtler pencil sharpener for our on the go one and this is the one we keep in pencil cases (UK Link/US Link).The other must have for me is a clipboard. I am often found colouring in downstairs on the sofa on an evening (I try to reduce screens on a night) and rather than rest on a book I use a clipboard (UK Link/US Link).
Tasha’s drawings are absolutely lovely but I just don’t have the time or patience to colour them myself. I’m sure someone will love winning this giveaway.
What a lovely set of cards. That is a really lovely and personal way to send cards, really different.
I love the idea of adult colouring and turning them into cards is a great way to send a thoughtful message.
