Mandala Colouring Pages

Colouring pages for adults grew in popularity in recent years and it’s become a well-known stress relief method. I’ve talked you through the origin of mandala patterns before and over the past year I drew a good amount of mandala colouring pages. I’d like to share them with you today.

If you’d like to learn more about mandalas and their trivia, have a read of this post. In summary, mandalas are symmetrical designs with an origin in Hinduism and Buddhism. They represent the universe, life, unity and harmony. They can date back to 10,000 BC.

I wrote a separate post dedicated to drawing mandalas by hand. Personally, I find it as relaxing as colouring them, andΒ  enjoy designing the patterns before I move on to adding colours. All you need to draw a mandala is a piece of paper, a pencil, a ruler and compasses.

After learning about the origins of mandalas, I got into designing them in a digital version. That’s how I launched the downloadables page. Check it out if you want to print out some colouring pages or a weekly planner. It’s also home to my huge (free) Christmas PDF with recipes, crafts and gift ideas. Christmas is only 6 months away!

Back to mandalas though. Over the past year, I definitely improved my mandalas game and managed to keep the designs varied and interesting. Let’s start with classic, circular mandalas – fairly detailed, so requiring a lot of patience.

I also experimented with other shapes to frame the designs. Here are two examples, with mandalas over an octagon and a square.

Then, I also made some designs with smaller mandalas inside a bigger, symmetrical picture. Mandala-ception?
