For all of my readers who enjoy coloring, you’ll be thrilled to learn that National Coloring Book Day is celebrated every year on August 2. While children have enjoyed coloring and coloring books for years, recently adults have gotten into the coloring craze as well. I’m sure that you’ve seen me write about my favorite coloring books several times over the last few months.

One of the keys to a stunning coloring book project is using the correct type of pencils. Legendary designer Louise Fili brings a sparkle to her stationery collection with a set of twelve double-sided pencils in six metallic shades. A shimmering twist on classic Italian packaging, Brillante is a companion to her bestselling pencil sets Perfetto and Tutti Frutti. This stunning new set is ideal for drawing, coloring, or writing and perfect for desktop display in a sturdy, elegant box. Thank you to the sponsor for providing a product and giveaway for this post.
