Ever since I was a child I have loved stickers. I remember collecting them for my Barbie sticker book and also used to get them in packs of sweets and stick them all over my bedroom door. Even now I’m in my 30’s I still love stickers and have loads stuck in my planner and I have a ‘thing’ for sticky notes. Now there is new way for adults to de-stress with stickers – Stickatopia. There are currently two Stickertopia books available, The Flower Garden and The Forest. Both all full of beautiful illustrations from some really great artist and on each page you place the flower stickers that are found at the back of the book an re-create a beautiful picture just using stickers.
I have received a copy of The Flower Garden to review and I must say it is a very unique book and really quite relaxing.
Completing a picture
The stickers themselves are quite small and fiddly, so not really suitable for people who are heavy-handed. I few of the very tiniest stickers ended up folding on themselves as I tried to pull them from the backing paper, so they ending up in the bin. When I am doing a picture, I choose one set of flowers to do at a time and place all of them sticker on my hand and arm, so I don’t have to keep flicking back through the pages.
Below is my first completed picture and beneath that is a before and after picture of another scene I completed. I really like how the completed pictures look and you can tell that they are stickers. You have to actually feel the page to see if there are stickers on it or not.
