Hi Friends! I just finished making a 12-page autumn mandala colouring book. It features a variety of unique and pretty mandalas with either an autumn or Halloween image in the middle. I think the colouring pages are perfect for 5 to 7-year-olds ... and maybe younger and older children depending on their colouring skills and tastes. Each mandala is centred on an 8 1/2 by 11 inch page, as you can see above. Here's a close-up of some of them. You can purchase the booklet in my TpT shop either by clicking the link or clicking on any of the images. FREEBIE! Here's a free colouring sheet which also has a mandala. Thanks for stopping by!...
I have some free social media icons for you today. This "pretty in green" set comes in two sizes: 50 px and 400 px. ...
Although it's still officially summer it definitely feels like autumn where I live. The kids are now back to school, the hot days have become warm and I'm noticing some leaves turning colour and falling to the ground. This is my favourite time of year! I've been learning how to make mandalas this week and thought it would be fun to make an autumn mandala to share. So here's one that I've turned into a colouring page. I hope it's the first of many because I was thinking of making a colouring book of mandalas aimed at 4 to 7 year olds. Mandalas can be very complicated, but I purposefully kept this one simple so that even the most reluctant crayon artist (I just made that up but I think it works) will be tempted to take crayon (or felt) to paper. The pdf can be printed onto an 81/2 by 11 inch paper. DOWNLOAD: Autumn Mandala Colouring Page If you grab it I'd love to hear some constructive feedback in the comments. Too simple? Too complicated? Not ...
Happy September, Friends! I have some new sugar skulls clipart to show you. I've been meaning to make these beauties for over a year! I just love all the different variations you can see online now. The first time I saw a sugar skull I have to admit it kind of creeped me out. But the more I really looked at them and started to appreciate the colours and artistry, the more I started to love them. As I'm sure you already know, sugar skulls are part of the Day of the Dead Mexican holiday (when deceased family members are honoured). I did a little research and learned that the sugar skulls (calaveras) are either decorative and made of clay, or edible and made out of sugar. The calaveras made out of sugar are decorated with coloured icing, beads, foil and feathers! Both types of skulls are made for children or for altar offerings. If you do a quick google search you can find tons of sugar skull recipes! But if you're like me, and not so much into cooking...
