I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the product or the content of my review.
The video above starts at the Colouring Heaven magazines I have purchased and one that was sent to me by Anthem Publishing.
There are a number of colouring magazines on the amarketfor adult colorists. The most common types, in Australia, tend to have illustrations that have been used in a number of publications or that are in the public domain. If you are just starting coloring, then these images may well appeal to you. However, if you have been coloring for some time, and have a number of books and magazines, then you may find that these do not offer the variety that you are looking for.
A stand out magazine in the colouring world, and my personal favourite, is the Colouring Heaven Magazine. Colouring Heaven started making magazines for adult colouring from August 2015. Initially, their magazines featured zentangle and doodle style art, with many themed magazines on popular topics.
As the years have progressed, Colouring Heaven has made a name for itself by working with well known and popular artists for their issues and creating well thought out themed issues. Some artists that have featured in the Colouring Heaven magazines in recent times are: Jasmine Becket Griffith, Hannah Lynn, wonderful Australian artists like Selena Fenech and Zan Von Zed.
The Colouring Heaven magazine works to a simple formula – a line art colorable cover which features the title in gold foil. There are at least 40 drawings in the magazine to colour. Unlike other magazines, there is very little, if any, advertising. The paper is a light quality and you do need to put a piece of blotter paper behind each page to protect the artwork. In each issue there is some sort of bonus offer – it may be a digital download, special subscription price or even a product. Thirteen issues of colouring heaven are published each year which includes popular themes like Christmas and Halloween. There is also an annual compilation edition.
Colouring Heaven is such a popular magazine with colorists that it is often difficult to find a copy of it in your local area. In Australia, it is stocked at Big W in limited quantities and some newsagents.
Fortunately, this year Colouring Heaven introduced a subscription service so that you can have the magazine delivered to your door. No longer will you miss an issue! Plus for us Australians, we no longer have to search for it at the local shops. Colouring Heaven was kind enough to send me the Halloween issue of the magazine. For the first time, I didn’t have to put on my detective gear and find it locally!.
You can buy back issues and single issues of magazines that you may have missed out on the Colouring Heaven website. However, you do need to be quick as they often sell out particularly of popular issues and their bumper annual issue.
The easiest way of ensuring that you do not miss out is to sign up for the subscription service, in my opinion. There are two options available for the subscription – paying for 6 months or paying for a year. The cost of the subscription will depend on which part of the world that you live in. It does work out cheaper buying on subscription rather than purchasing single issues. You can sign up for the subscription service here.
With Christmas coming I am sure this magazine will be filling a few Christmas stockings this year! Colouring Heaven have some special Christmas discounts on at the moment as well! I am not sure how long these offers are available for.
Happy coloring x
