Now, one of the things I love about having kids is being able to sit and colour with the girls but there’s only so many princess pictures you can colour. When I was offered the chance to review some colouring books for grown ups I jumped at the chance!
At the start of Nature Mandalas there pages introducing the concept of doodling and colouring to encourage relaxation, meditation and encourage creativity. There is discussion on colour theory and patterning techniques – adding more pattern and details to the simple shapes on the colouring pages.
With examples of using different media to produce different affects.
Creative Colouring Flowers has more detailed pictures to colour in if your not feeling up to doodling your own lines straight away.
I enjoyed colouring this flower picture over a couple of lunch times at work and I’m quite keen to borrow the children’s water colours to have a go with.
Both books have perforated pages for you to pull out and colour with inspirational quotes on the back of each one. The pages were a little easier to pull out of the flowers book. several colleagues joined in with a little lunch time colouring and we were all feeling quite relaxed!
Both books are available to buy now!
