Aayush Creations Adult Coloring Book

by Vaishali Mane, Aayush Kumar 33841975

Filled with fantastic designs, some of them with grid-line backgrounds.  The only downside is that the pages are printed back to back, rather than with black pages in between to prevent bleed-through.  Fine if you use colored pencils, but not markers.

Yoga, meditation, & mandalas, oh my!!!


Yoga and meditation coloring book for adults

Inspiring and educational while also calming and relaxing.

I LOVE coloring books and I LOVE mandalas.  This one has added yoga poses throughout, with some illustrating not just the physical, but additional  tidbits like the chakras and Hindu images.

LOTS of fine detail in the majority of these images, so expert-level coloring may be required!

This coloring book has a wide selection of intricate designs allowing you hours of creative, stress-relieving coloring.

Some of the designs include more separated images, so if you choose to, you could mix and match the combinations of butterflies and flowers.

Back to the 80s

I am absolutely in love with this coloring book.  It captures the essence of the 80s hair, fashion and fads.  The pictures are busy, completely in step with the way things were back then.

My favorites are the hair band and the arcade scenes.

If you need me, I’ll be coloring and reliving my teenage memories…

Gift Wrap

Filled with whimsical vintage designs, this is a fun little stress-relieving adult coloring book.

I could use some of the smaller designs as gift tags, and I could definitely consider coloring a few of these several times, in different themes.

The girls in dresses and the butterfly pages are my favorite!

Color Me Smart

Color me Smart brain puzzles coloring book (Arts On Coloring Books) (Volume 3)

I loved the kaleidoscopic designs in this coloring book and the added twist of figuring out which extra bit below fit in with the design (the brain puzzle part).

The designs are user-friendly (meaning, the spaces aren’t too small to color in).

I only wish there were more pages to the book…

Oh, and having a test color page in the back is awesome!!!

I swear…

swearSwear Word Coloring Book: Stress Relief Coloring Book

I was a little disappointed in this coloring book. While it’s humorous to relieve your stress by coloring pictures with “bad words” embedded into them, some of these were too much of a stretch. My favorites were pages 5 and 39, where the words were more cleverly disguised.
