Colouring with Cats #17 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays! PLUS OUR NEW FREE DOWNLOADABLE COLOURING BOOK!


Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

We hope mew've had a pawesome lovey-dovey pre-valentines weekend and here's to feeling all lovey-dovey calm and nicely chilled fur the next few days, but if mew're not we know we can assist mew in getting your Zen Harmonies happening and that fuzzy feeling of zen-ness back.

 Let's begin with our little breathing exercise, we're sure mew know what to do but if mew've furgotten: purrlease take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

As many of mew know I've not been well and have actually been in the pawspital since last Thursday with a pancreatitis flare-up.  Anyhoo, I've been a really good kitty and have been getting my meds through I.V. and hopefully by the time mew read this I should have been discharged - well that's the plan, home fur Monday afternoon and back with The Heathen Hoard.  Now we've just got to sort out a long term maintenance plan as I don't want this to happen again, so it looks like my diet will be radically radicalized this time.  So I'll update mew with my progress as I continue on my healing journey.

Now let's talk about something far more fun than illness and pawspitals....

*    *     *

Oh wow guys, we were talking with one of the P.A.'s furriends the other week and they said, mew should really turn those beautiful mandala's into a downloadable and printable colouring book, and then we remembered what The Tabbies of Trout Towne said ages ago about making a book, so guess what we did?

We made mew a downloadable and printable colouring book just fur mew!  How cool is that, so epically cool and here it is, with 16 gorgeous mandalas, 15 of which mew have neffur seen before so they are totally exclusive to the book, LIKE OMC we're just so excited to share this with mew! MOL 

The supurr Hard Wurking Editorial Team @BionicBasil selecting designs fur the book, and we listened to the P.A. when she said she really didn't like colouring books with a pattern on effury page as it meant that if mew used anything other than coloured pencils the ink went through the page and ruined the design on the reverse sheet and even on the opposite page!  So we've made our book with one design per page so mew can print it off and have no wurries about what kind of medium mew colour it in with, plus mew can use whateffur type of paper mew like to try different effects.   Plus there's a good selection of mandalas, easy through to hard, so there's something fur effuryone.

And we even made a cute book cover and effurything!

If mew have missed any of the previous mandala's and feel the need to colour, here's the links:


All the mandala's featured are designed and made by us, unless otherwise stated.



So without further adieu here's this weeks Mandala and as it's Valentines Day tomorrow we thought we'd do a lovely heart fur mew:

Just right click the image to save and print it...


And here's the P.A.'s finished colouring, she said that she left some of it uncoloured as she really liked the patch-wurk effect. Not that she was being lazy and couldn't be bothered to finish it - The Kitty Jury is still deliberating on that! MOL 


Coloured using metallic, mat and glitter gel pens.

  1. I love how the heart turned out, it's absolutely stunning. I like the use of white space, I don't think there was any laziness involved, rather strategic I'd say!

  10. Gotta do this mandala RIGHT NOW!!! And maybe even a SECOND time because there are endless ways you could use colors on this one. Okay, okay, and the other 16 too. The perfect present for a dreary Monday. We hope you continue to feel better, Basil. Bear Cat and I are sending love (to you, your PA and the rest of the Heathen Hoard) and healing wishes (for you).
