Coloring Mandalas for Relaxing

19 September 2016 - 06:19 PM

I've seen Mandala coloring books at stores, so I looked them up to see what it's all about:

 

"Why are mandala coloring pages such an effective tool for healing? First of all, coloring is fun and relaxing. It’s an enjoyable way to express your creativity. And, it’s an activity you can fully participate in whether you’re 4 or 94 years old.

•    There is no right or wrong way to color a mandala.
•    You can color just about anywhere.
•    Coloring lifts your spirits and brings out the child in you.
•    You can color at your own pace.
•    You don’t have to follow any rules when you color.
•    Kids and adults alike enjoy coloring.
•    You know you’re creating a unique work of art.
•    You can share the experience by coloring in groups.
•    It’s affordable.
•    It activates the intuitive genius within you."

 

For fun, I thought I would "color" a mandala with PSE and scrapgirls papers!

2017 calendar 11x17 pro printing, less than $1/page

I was at Staples (Canada) using the self-serve color printer and noticed it now accepts JPG files! (Previously they had to be PDF.)

 

This makes it easier and cheaper than ever to get professional printing of 11x17 pages.  This is great if you are designing your own 11x17 pages or using

So now we can just export our PSD files to JPG onto memory stick, insert memory stick into printer, select the 11x17 paper size and...  seconds later your pages start coming out!

 

While you are there, you can also get your newly printed pages spiral bound so they hang like this:
