I have reviewed Scratch and Draw books before, and when Scratch & Draw Enchanted Animals arrived I thought I knew what I was getting. I have to say, I was delighted to be proven wrong.
This Scratch and Draw book is different from any others that I have ever used before. It is. It’s actually a pretty cool book and I just have to tell you about it.
In Scratch & Draw Enchanted Animals you get a book filled with 20 easy to follow designs to make your own beautiful, scratched out art work. Each design comes with a scratch paper of it’s own in colours such as silver, gold, burgundy, and black. The cover of the book promises they are easy to follow and they are!
ME… non-artistic me! I was able to mostly replicate a drawing. Even my artistic lad said “good job mom, you only needed to bring that part out a bit more, and why didn’t you do the ears right?” But otherwise, I apparently did a good job. Easy enough to replicate and if I wanted to, I could have changed it (at least the ear part). I did use a side of the page to play around with different strokes I could make with the tool.
Oh yes, each book comes with it’s own tool. It’s a solid plastic tool with a pointy end and flat broad end. I found that it fit into my hand nicely and did the job smoothly, like holding a pen or pencil in my hand.
I love the variety in the designs and the page colours. They are what is promised “easy-to-follow drawings”. Easy to replicate, easy to change to suit your own creativity, easy to work with (the stylus worked smoothly), and easy to remove for display purposes.
This is just a lovely book for anyone to sit down with to unwind after a busy day, to take along on a trip or to just spend some time being creative with.
