Coloring Mandalas Par Deux, and GIVEAWAY

If there is one thing I love more than lipstick, shoes, and outfits, it’s my cat. If there are two things I love more than lipstick, shoes, and outfits, it’s my cat and coloring! I’ve been a HUGE fan of coloring for a few years now (seen here, here, and here!) and I’m so freaking excited that it’s become so popular – coloring for everyone!

Now, I hate to play favorites (that’s a lie) but I’ve been soooo into Wendy Piersall and her amazing mandala coloring books. I have 4 currently, and I use them very regularly. I was starting to worry, though; what is going to happen when I fill them up? Should I just get new ones and start over??

THE COLORING GODS HAVE HEARD MY CRIES!! Wendy has put out 2 new books!! And one of them has a really cool twist.

Coloring Bird Mandala

The Coloring Bird Mandala is is similar in size and style to her previous books. One thing I really about her books is that, while the images are intricate, the designs aren’t HUGE. If a picture takes up a whole 8.5 x 11 page, it can be really daunting and I can get burned out working on 1 pictures. Wendy’s images are just the right size.

Coloring Flower Mandala Postcards

Second is the Coloring Flower Mandala POSTCARD book. Yeah, you read that right; this book has smaller pages that can be torn out and sent as postcards. How cool is that??? People have often told me I should give my pictures as gifts, but I do like keeping them in my binder of work. This kills, like, three birds with one stone. I get to color, I can gift it to someone else, and I get to send actual mail – which I LOVE doing!! So much fun!!

I can’t say enough great things about Wendy and her gorgeous coloring books. And I am such a big fan that I have partnered with her publishing company, Ulysses Press, for a second time to do a GIVEAWAY! If you’d like to get one of her new coloring books, there are a few ways to enter:

2- Follow me, Wendy, and Ulysses Press on Instagram (1 entry)

3 – Find my post on Instagram about the giveaway, like it, and tag 2 friends that love coloring! (1 entry)

    I am a colored pencils girl… I’ll use markers if I have to… no way on crayons.

  • Adult Coloring 101

    My favorite is alcohol-based markers, so I love single-sided illustrations in my coloring books!

  • Julie Rod.

    I’ve always loved using colored pencils 🙂

  • Mimibear

    I use colour pencils that my dad gave me or markers when I work on tracing paper.

  • mizdoc

    Anything mandala is interesting to me. I got started on (adult) colouring on mandalas and I love them. I started out using my son’s leftover from high school Crayola and Laurentian coloured pencils,and now have my own Prismacolor, and several other cheaper brands, but my favourite (of the moment) is my Staedler Fineliner pens and my cheap gel pens. And for coloured pencils, I have to go with Prismacolour Premier.

  • Tricia Murdy

    My favorite are gel pens!

  • I like both pencil crayons and felt pens, but felt pens feel… easier, I guess, because the colour flows more smoothly.

  • Crayons hands down 🙂

  • Also I follow you all on Insta 🙂 (bohofoxbabe)

  • Amy Ferrantino

    Prismacolor colored pencils make my heart happy.

  • Ilene Gjerset Mundell

    I am currently trying lots of things….but really enjoy the prismacolor…but for bold and beautiful I am working with shin han markers!!

  • Marie

    I love using pastels!

  • Gabrielly Margutti

    I always use colored pencils.

  • kera adams

    Colored pencils are my favorite but I’m trying to branch outside of my comfort zone and use new mediums.

  • crtfly

  • Prismacolor pencils are the best! I also like gel pens, but definitely prerfer Prismacolors. 🙂
