Need a Christmas gift? My Mandala Coloring Book is out!

By , December 10, 2014

I just released my new hand-illustrated coloring book, Mandala Dreaming.

Take a look; the mandalas are so much fun to color!

And, it makes a great Christmas gift!

(Order by 10:30am MST, on Saturday Dec 20th to receive by the 24th with standard shipping. But they’ll remain for sale beyond that, of course, if you don’t happen to need one for Christmas…)

Coloring is a low-tech, creative activity that has been enjoyed for generations. It’s not just for children, although of course it is wonderful for them too!

Coloring has grown up, as you’ll discover in this beautifully hand-illustrated coloring book.

The 20 intricate mandalas contained within are just waiting for you to allow yourself the luxury — nay, the necessity — of a bit of quiet time for yourself… to play creatively with color… to allow your deep-down spirit to come alive.

These high-quality coloring books are handmade, one by one, in my Colorado studio. The pages are thick 110-lb (199 g/m²), acid-free, 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock, perforated for easy removal, and the mandalas are printed on the front side only of each page. The book is spiral-bound so you can fold it back completely for ease of coloring.

Enjoyed most by Adults, Teens, or Older kids because the designs are a little more complex.

Use markers, crayons, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, and even actual watercolors! (For watercolors, tear out page and tape corners to a board.)

One of my favorite ways is to color with art markers first (Prismacolor brand is very nice, but there are others), and then add highlights and depth with colored pencils on top of the marker.

These really are fun to color!





Color and display!

    You are amazing Lindsey! Here I am thinking you’re totally absorbed by all these health issues and actually, you’ve been creating this wonderful Mandala Coloring Book! The designs are quite beautiful – I’ll be ordering a couple for sure.

    Thank you Trish! I must email you…. I miss you and wonder how you and your family are.

    Hi Jane!! Thank you! And yes there’s been plenty of absorption by health issues, far too much, but I have begun to feel a lot better, so finally I get my chance to create this book! I loved your letter, and will most certainly reply via good ol’ snail mail!
    With love,

    Lindsey, Your beautiful mandala coloring books arrived today, so promptly, one for me and others in reserve for special friends on special occasions, to be gifted with the color pens you recommend. I love it that you created these beautiful patterns, each so unique and unusual. So glad you are feeling better.
    Love, Kate

    I’m so glad they arrived to you quickly Kate! I hope you like them.

    I’m very pleased with the patterns and the quality of the paper. Will you be publishing additional books? If so, I’d like to know when they are available. Thank you so much.

  12. Lindsey says:

    Hi Jerue,
    So sorry I missed your comment until now! Thank you so much, this is wonderful feedback. I was toying with the idea of eventually making an additional book with more mandalas but it will be a while yet (several months, probably more) before that’s available. They take quite a while to create 🙂
    Thanks again for your kind comment.
