Has it been years since I last shared some mandalas here? I think I need a time out. I’m going to try to make things right here by offering you a single download with four free printable mandala coloring pages in one! Yep, that’s one 4-page “mini ebook”that you can add to your collection of adult coloring pages. This post contains affiliate links.
There’s something about mandalas that make them one of my favorite relaxing coloring experiences.
Unlike more realistic pages that showcase actual real-life STUFF, mandalas can be colored mindlessly. Only I think they call it “mindfulness” but whatever.
Download it here:
To color these free printable mandala coloring pages, I used mostly Stabilo Point 88 pens, with Pen 68 in black to fill in some background.
I first chose some color families and colored one section at a time, using different shades from the same family. No, I did not finish coloring it yet… it’s sitting on my dining room table, waiting to be finished!
If/when I do, I’ll definitely share it on Instagram.
I hand-illustrated the free printable mandala coloring pages using my Surface Pro.
What does that mean and why do I “cheat” and use digital means to illustrate my coloring pages?
I used to do everything entirely by hand. To tell you that the process took longer is an understatement. Even more so, the results were inconsistent and sometimes I spent hours just trying to keep the quality while sharpening the scanned artwork.
When I hand-illustrate onto my Surface, it means that I’m not using a computer-generated image. It’s the same intricate doodles you’re used to. Only, features such as line correction and the fact that I don’t need to rely on a scanner that pixelates it, mean that you’re getting a better, higher quality, more consistent image.
And even more so… that’s how I was able to offer four different designs in this free printable mandala coloring pages bundle! Because of the time-saving features included in the app I used, as well as the ability to create an image that’s good-to-go, I was able to create four pages in less time than it would take me to do one, while improving the quality!
So there you have it!

Oh my gosh, I just downloaded these & I can't wait to color them! They are amazing! Thank you so much! Can I use them to make cards or to put on a tee & then color it? I don't want to do anything without your permission.

Gail, your comments always make me smile and encourage me to create the next! Yes, you can use them to make cards or a tee as long as it's for your personal use (including giving as a personal gift). I appreciate you asking!
