Paint by Sticker Travel

Congratulations to Ashley C.,

Winner of the Paint by Sticker Travel Book!

Paint by Sticker Travel

Paint by Sticker Travel

When I was a kid, my dad often lingered at the kitchen table after the dinner dishes had been put away. He would pull out the paint-by-number kit he had been working on each evening and painstakingly fill in the numbered contours on a canvas outlined with a scenic view of Paris.

He’d relax and reminisce about the time he spent in France during WWII. Although not an artist, filling in the colors transported him to a different place, which really is the essence of relaxation.

Now computer graphics has taken us a step beyond old-school paint-by-number kits and children’s coloring books (that have more recently morphed into an adult “trend”.)

“Paint by Sticker” books use stickers rather than paint or crayons to bring out creativity in even the most unimaginative person. Their simplicity makes it almost impossible to make mistakes—promoting active mindfulness and relaxation.

How it works

The Paint by Sticker Travel book allows the user to re-create 12 vintage Art Deco-style travel posters, one sticker at a time. Armchair artists can travel to Cairo, Holland, the Normandie, Monaco, Venezia, Maine, Bermuda, Japan and Moscow; they can also ski or experience summer.

This book (one of a series of paint by sticker books on different topics from Workman Publishing) comes with numbered, peel-off geometric shapes, swatches of color that can be matched to the outlines of the figures on the poster. The artist pastes down the self-sticking pieces to create a finished product looks much like a lifelike mosaic.


As part of a blog tour among travel writers and bloggers, Workman Publishing has agreed to give one reader of More Time To Travel his/her own Paint by Sticker Travel Book.

  • To be eligible to win, simply leave a comment below explaining why you would like to win the book.
  • One winner will be randomly selected and announced here by May 15, 2017.
  • Limited to addresses in U.S. and Canada only.

Good luck!

Disclosure: The site owner received a copy of this book for review from Workman Publishing.

    Adult coloring books aren’t quite for me; my hands, though never super steady, are even less precise as I age. Paint by sticker looks like a perfect way to relax and stay in the lines.

    I love the new coloring books I’m seeing in our local book store. Actually used one during a recovery from surgery to help me relax. This looks like something I would love as much as I love traveling. Nice work!

    I love adult coloring but find it a bit too finicky and stressful at times (I’m a perfectionist), not to mention having my supplies out invites my kids to come make my “good” markers disappear 😉 I’d love to try this – it seems like a great stress reliever!

    I enjoy adult coloring books now and then. This one would be great for air travel because you don’t have to carry any colored pencils with it. I often travel to DC for a 2 or 3 day weekend and if I don’t take a lot of extras I can pack everything I need into a small carry-on tote.
