Coloring Books to Tickle Your Creativity


Life is Beautiful
Be Happy
Two Coloring Books
Barron’s Publishing

With all the adult coloring books available, it’s surprising that someone has just come out with a new idea. These two books are called “photo-finish” because the image to color is part of a color photograph.

What makes this particularly fun is that because part of the image is already a color photo, it is interesting to try to match the theme that is presented. Life is Beautiful has 40 images with mandala elements and illustrations with birds, butterflies, and flowers. Be Happy has another 40 images with mandala elements and blossoms, paisley prints. garlands of vines, butterflies and more.

One can color these just for fun or make them into gifts, greeting cards, or even origami. I chose one that was a heart with lots of flowers, colored it in and gave it as a Valentine’s card; the recipient was thrilled. If you enjoy coloring, you will love both of these.
