Mandala Rainbow – Colored

Color Happy


Recently, I stumbled across a coloring group that produces coloring pages for adults and has built a community on Facebook of coloring enthusiasts from all over the world that believe that life is about appreciating the pleasure in everyday experiences.  They hold contests and encourage members to share pictures they’ve colored, whether purchased through them or not.

Spreading joy through color.

I particularly enjoy this group because they focus on being happy.  There is so much negativity in the world right now that it’s just so hard to get away from it.  I am not a person that suffers with depression and anxiety but the current state of my country makes me sad and seeing all of the hate spreading like wildfire makes me even more sad.  I believe that most people are good and I would rather focus on the positive things in life to allow myself to feel good.

In the words of the Color Happy community, “We belong to one race, the Human Race, and love and honor those who differ from us.  We truly believe that a box of crayons and a friendly smile can change the world.”

The picture I colored below came from Color Happy as well.  It was a free page to show off a package that was being sold.  I downloaded, printed, and started coloring it right away.  I took about 3 days to color this one as I don’t color a whole picture in one sitting.  I work on it off and on throughout the day until it’s done.  I stuck to the rainbow theme again on this one as I thought it really helped showcase the different elements of the mandala.

I would be happy to share these mandalas with you. In fact, I hope that you will get it and color it and then come back and attach it to a comment on this post to share with us the completed mandala. That would be awesome!

 

Tools Used


Gel Pens used for My Rainbow Mandala

Once again, I used the Staples 36 pack of Gel Pens. This pack seems to have four different types of each color, a metallic, a neon, a glitter, and a standard.

I hope to find my other pens soon so that I can start using a variety of different tools while I color.  I like to mix and match different colors and textures to get different effects when I color.  One day, I’ll start trying to blend my colors and see how that works out for me.  But since I color as a stress reliever, I try not to create opportunities for failure here.

So that’s my coloring for this week, I hope you enjoyed! Have you colored anything lately?

Until next time,

~Ki

    This is just awesome. I went through the whole article and it’s sounds really an interesting hobby for my brother to do. He is always bored and asks me what he can do but now I guess I have something for him that will keep him busy for a while.

    Thank you for writing and sharing about this wonderful tool which will be really interesting for all the teens out there. Thank you.

    Hi Kris

    I really love your Mandala colouring. I have heard about adult colouring books, but I have never had one. But I have heard that it is really calming and soothing to make beautiful patterns like yours, and that they are used to help people who are suffering from depression as you say.

    I can well believe that that is the case, because I can imagine that the creation of such beautiful rainbow coloured patterns would give one a feeling of achievement and satisfaction. I can see that it would be impossible to remain stressful whilst creating such beautiful things.In fact, I would love to try one, and I think that I may well take you up on your offer.

    How did you first discover Mandala rainbows? Of course we all loved to colour in when we were very small, and often still “doodle” when we are trying to concentrate on something. I know that I used to doodle during College lectures in between taking notes! I guess that this is an extension of those doodles, would you say?

    Very many thanks for sharing this with us.

    Chrissie 🙂

      Hi Chrissie!

      Thank you for the wonderful compliment, I’m so glad you like it and sure hope to be able to provide some relaxing moments for you in the near future.  

      I actually obtained the mandalas from a group I am a member of called Color Happy.  The mascot for the group is a rainbow unicorn which is where I got the rainbow color from and they have  Marvelous Mandala package where I was able to obtain many mandalas to color.

      Coloring is definitely relaxing for me and I’m sure for many others.  I hope you are able to find it as relaxing as I do!

      Thank you so much for your feedback!
