I hope that you ll use each of these pages as a launching pad to spark your creativity and unleash your inner artist.I took my first intercontinental plane ride before I learned to walk, and I've been hooked on travel ever since. From staying with a tribal village family in India to getting married under a tree in Australia, the world offers me such an amazing variety of experiences cultures to explore, places to see, differences to appreciate. Art is my way of assimilating and interpreting the world around us. And my travels allow me to keep my art and techniques fresh and interesting.Mandalas are powerful symbols of wholeness, perfect for decorating with markers, colored pencils, gel pens, or watercolors. Nature Mandalas Coloring Book is printed on high-quality, extra-thick paper to eliminate bleed-through.

Top customer reviews
The Owl on the front cover is the most detailed in the book, the rest are simpler and left that way specifically so school aged children and adults, who like to draw and doodle, can add in their own details, creating their own unique, personalized illustrations.
This book as it is printed is a wonderful first mandala coloring book for younger school aged children. These perfectly balanced, nature inspired mandalas will encourage your childrens imagination, stimulate their senses, and arouse their creativity. As they become engaged in the enjoyable activity of Coloring, it provides a calming effect and almost immediately starts reducing stress levels.
Example of one of the quotes (If you want something you have never had, then you have got to do something you have never done)
My Grandchildren love this book, even the youngest with crayons, markers, colored pencils. I like using Gel Pens and colored pencils.
1. 30 delightful, imaginative, simple, nature inspired mandala illustrations to color, printed one per page (the back of each page has an inspirational quote) on medium weight, bright white paper, which is perforated for easy page removal.
2. 5 hint pages at the beginning of the book provide, pattern techniques, Shading, Basic color ideas, and Color theory.
3. 8 full sized example colored pages, with additional details added to the actual books images, to inspire you
4. Thirty inspirational quotes are included, one on the back of each coloring page.
1. The paper is only medium weight so some pens and markers will bleed through. To prevent damage to the next picture place a scrap piece of paper under the picture as you color it and leave until the picture is dry. Problem Solved!
It does include some tutorials on how to go about adding to the picture, and gives some ideas for color schemes, which I appreciate.
I also like the quotes that are included as a watermark on the back of the pages.
So, overall, good coloring book. If you can't or don't like to draw, you may feel like the picture is missing something in the end.
