Adult coloring books have gone beyond a trend, creating a solid category in the publishing world. The craze has hit the religion and spirituality market as well. Prayer and meditation can provide people with a sense of oneness and positivity. In Colorful Blessings, the illustrations provide an outlet for people to combine coloring with prayer practices to help them connect mind, body, and soul.
Colorful Blessings provides approximately 47 coloring pages that offer the colorist an opportunity to grow in creative expression while embracing spirituality. Illustrations range from less detailed to fairly intricate, but all provide an inspirational message of life and faith that is brought to life in color.
Printed on perforated paper, the designs can be removed for easier coloring and/or hanging.
