Outside the Lines is a visual explosion of lines just begging to be filled with color, and is a creative outlet for anyone with an imagination.”

“Remember how much fun it used to be to color as a kid? Well, thanks to artist Mel Elliott and her brilliant pop culture coloring books, you can bust out your childhood crayon collection as an adult—and you don't have to be the least bit embarrassed. Mel's latest book just might be the best one yet. Color Me Girl Crush
pays homage to Mel's favorite famous ladies. The book features the coolest It Girls of the mo—from Cara Delevingne to Alexa Chung to Beyoncé— as well as commentary on their unique styles and personalities.”

But, as was foretold, this is no mere coloring book. Each girl crush has a different activity, like creating your own Lady Gaga-style dress and matching the characters of Girls to their typical get-upsFun for the whole family.”
