Color me happy!

I was given a chance to play with some of Tracie Stroud Designs’ kits last week and look what I found in the store:


Aren’t they gorgeous?  Well, what
better way to use these than in a small colouring book. so of course, I then needed a kit for the covers and I used the Equanimity kit and Artsian papers:
 


I love all those papers and the artsy effects 😉

All I did was print out some of the papers then cut them down to 4″ by 4″.  For the colouring pages, I opened a blank A4 file and then added guidelines at 4″ and 8″ horizontally and vertically to create four 4″  by 4″ squares.  I dragged each colouring jpeg into one of the squares, resizing them to fit into the 4″ by 4″ space. then all I had to do was print and cut out each square:

 

 

 

I added a binder ring on one corner to hold the pages together. I then just printed some of the mandalas from the kit, adding a doily to one and a punched paper layer to the other as decoration for the front covers.  

These were so easy to make and would make a great children’s colouring book for when travelling to help keep them occupied.  Mind you, this would probably be better with older children due to the more complex patterns!

Happy scrapping!
