As you transform the detailed shapes in this book into stunning works of art, you'll find yourself relaxing, focused, reaching a higher state of mindfulness and simply enjoying yourself.
Illustrator Wendy Piersall is a lifelong artist who has been drawing mandala coloring pages since 2009.
I cannot wait to invest in a really great set of colored pencils. I was using my kids old ones from school last year and they don't really have the amount of different colors I would enjoy using but I did love sitting and just coloring. My daughter came over and asked if she could color too but honestly I just wanted to sit and color comfortably on my lap while watching TV and making a pretty picture. I told her that she could do one after I was done.
We love the intricate shapes and details to each photo and at first I thought the only thing I didn't like was that the pages didn't come out of the book but honestly this is great because when you are done, you have a beautiful book full of colorful, detailed, pictures that are almost like 3D when you look at them. They seem to raise right off the page as you color them in.
I can't wait to work on this one.
And this one!
We think this book is great for those who love to color but it is really good for anyone who just wants to zone out and create a beautiful picture. There are 31 beautiful designs to choose from and each one is unique.
