Mandala art from the Young and the Young at Heart!

My new book "Ms Moffatt's Merry Mandalas" is for the young and the young at heart. I sent out sample pages to various age groups to color. The range here is 14 Years to 95 years!
This group of art is from kids ages 7 to 12 years old. The love birds are colored by two different MacLeod sisters. Click on the art to see a larger picture.

"Going Buggy" Colored by Cheryl.
 Fellow teacher and artist friend Cheryl Kirk Noll comes for a visit. After sketching on an upcoming project, Cheryl joins me in coloring one of my new pages from Merry Mandalas.

I was quite surprised at how Cheryl's looked sooo completely different from the one I'm coloring. Notice the dark green square that forms mid circle on Cheryl's, I don't see the square right off on mine, more like 8 separate leaves.

Then Brigid Boyle has a completely different look by coloring the back ground leaves RED! I love it, and would never have thought to do that.

Rebecca Thornburgh's (another talented artist friend) colored "Poppies Hideaway" with the accompanying story about how I found baby bunnies hiding in my flower garden.
 Rebecca is not local, I wish she could come color with me!

Aren't her poppies beautiful?

 I love seeing how different artist color these pages. Do send me yours!

Mandala books on their way, some as far as Canada!


"Ms. Moffatt's Merry Mandalas" has arrived! I've  delivered some to "TC Scoops" in Medway in case anyone in my area wants to pick one up one for Valentines day.

It's a perfect activity for the whole SNOWED IN FAMILY! (If you are in New England you are getting ready for the next storm. I haven't seen this much snow in many years.)

The 8 1/2" x 10"coloring book is printed on fine quality 80 pound stock and has 10 Mandalas to get creative with. The price is $10 everywhere this Valentine weekend. Along with TC Scoops, they will also be at Five Crows in Natick, MA.

For those of you too far away to pick one up, I will have a listing on my Etsy site:
Or you can message me and we can make arrangements if you'd rather not use Etsy or paypal.
 On the right hand side is the black outlined Mandala. On the left side there are little fun facts about the creatures in the Mandalas, along with a palette where you can test out your colors before filling in the Mandalas shapes if you like.

I love opening the whole book up to see the colorful Mandalas that span the back page. 10 pieces of  playful art to color for the young and the young at heart!
