Enhance your book with the following add-ons:

+ $6.00

Double the number of swatches in your book! This also doubles the number of pages from 30 to 60.

+ $0.25

Our Marker Paper is one of the thickest papers you can get in a coloring book, so ink bleed through is rare. However, if your coloring style includes heavy layering or you just want a little extra peace of mind, then add a Blotting Page to your order.

+ $0.00

Select this option if you do NOT want your pages bound into a book. This is a great alternative to perforation–no need to tear pages out of a book.

Description

Volume 1: 1,800 or 3,600 Swatches!

 

I love to swatch my art tools! Beyond the practical sides of swatching (cataloging a set of coloring tools, seeing what their colors are, testing the limits of the tools, getting to know how the tools perform, etc.) I love seeing the beautiful colors neatly displayed in front of me like a menu of possibilities. Swatching inspires me, relaxes me, and it has become one of my favorite artistic pastimes.

 

Swatch Bliss is a place for you to discover the joys of swatching. Every swatch page has been thoughtfully designed by me to give you plenty of space to record all the important information about each of your art tools: brand, set, color name, color number, date, and miscellaneous notes. Write it all down or just those things that are important to you. I have also given you a generous swatching square with room to try a gradient, different line pressures, doodles, or even smears…try it all!!!

 

Swatch Bliss comes in multiple volumes to fit multiple needs. No matter which Swatch Bliss volume you choose you can be sure that it will be printed on my favorite artist quality papers (you choose from available options at the time of your order.) The books are carefully bound and ready for your to fill with all your beautiful colors.

  • Volume 3: Swatching Fun book which features my hand drawn art. Each page can swatch a variety of colors, plus you still have room to write down all the important color and set details.

Therapeutic Swatching

I use my art as a “blissful” way to cope with daily chronic pain (no one’s life is perfect). One of my favorite ways to help me cope with high pain days, or days that I’m feeling extra stress, anxiety, or depression is to swatch. Do you ever feel that urge to create but you just don’t feel up to working on a full piece of art? Me too! Sometimes, I will find a blank piece of paper or open a sketch book and grab my favorite art tools and just lose myself in swatching each of those beautiful colors. It is such a relaxing way to lay down colors and enjoy how the tools perform without the pressure of creating a masterpiece. I highly recommend you give this a try next time you feel that urge to create on a hard day. It is so blissful and therapeutic.

      I’m sorry Kristie, but the metallic paper isn’t available for the swatching books.

      Do you mean together in the same book? If so, we’re unable to do that mainly because the book would be too thick to bind! 🙂

    I am working through all of my products and swatching them. I ordered the multimedia version. One of the best things is taking the time to revisit the products I have as I often get lazy and grab the last thing I used. Thank you for creating this!

    I purchased volume 1 of the Swatching Catalog, shipping was quick, product was well packaged and arrived in pristine condition. The book is very well made and sturdy. I love that the bounding is at the top. I have started switching using the marker section and the paper is outstanding.
    I love this book and now I have all my swatches in one place. Thank you for an excellent product.

    SWATCH BLISS Volume 1

    Connie L. Cable (verified owner)

    I asked for the double and all 3 types of paper. I also ordered the paper sampler so I can print/copy pages to your paper. All arrived in perfect shape and quicker than expected. I am excited to start swatching. Thank you so much!!! I am still waiting for you to offer the metallic paper in bulk.

    Swatch book heaven 🎶

    Margaret McKenzie (verified owner)

    I purchased the searching catalog with the three different kinds of paper and double swatches so I have 20 pages for each section. Highly recommend doing the same if you want to have all your swatches in the same place. I especially love the chipboard back to make the book more rigid.
