Fans of Bionic Basil will be excited to see that there is a Colouring With Cats book, it’s called ‘Getting Your OM on‘. Hi everyone, it’s Phoebe here and I have hot news for coloring fans. I am so excited to have got my paws on a review copy, so I can give you a sneak peek of the colouring treats inside! This is how we do wellbeing for bloggers around here!
My half finished first effort – Phoebe
OK, I admit, it’s not Basil’s own paw work but his mum’s – Cathrine Garnell, who is a talented writer, published author, and artist.
Now, in case you are not familiar with mandalas, here’s a definition to help you. Then read our review below!
“A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, “mandala” is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.“
Colouring With Cats – What I thought
16 printable mandalas make up the collection in Book One.
Each design is totally different, some are more complex than others, but we think there is a design here for everyone to make a start with, and, once you begin, you will become totally wrapped up in your colouring. Beginners and experienced colouring fans will love the challenges here. The free colouring book is live on Basil’s blog right now!
Colouring With Cats – Pro Tips
- Many hobby colourists prefer single-sided printed sheets that allow them to use specific techniques such as markers, sharpies, gel pens or watercolours. As you print off these designs yourself, there is no worry about the quality and type of paper you use because you choose your own surface – how brilliant is this.
- If you love one design you can print it off a second time to enjoy a whole new colour scheme
- You can print off a design on different papers to see the effects of different colouring materials
