Colour Me Mindful: Butterflies – A Review

Disclaimer – Please read this disclosure about my use of affiliate links which are contained within this post.
Colour Me Mindful: Butterflies (Colour Me Mindful Colouring Bk) illustrated by the very talented Anastasia Catris and published and very kindly sent to me to review by Orion Books. This book contains 50 images of all things butterfly-related. The images vary from garden scenes, to butterfly-filled mandalas, patterns, to butterfly shapes filled with flowers and page upon page of the most intricately drawn full page butterflies. This is a gorgeous delicate book that contains the most wonderful butterfly illustrations and is an absolutely essential addition to your collection if you like all things fluttery.

The images are all drawn in a very thin line which means very sharp pencils or fineliners are essential to enjoy your colouring experience. This book will certainly help to colour you mindful because the intricacy and detail of the drawings lend themselves perfectly to keeping you focused and occupied and grounded in the present moment. Despite being small, the images take plenty of time to complete and really do keep you busy for hours. The images all feel very positive and natural which is inherently very calming. Many of the butterflies are covered in detailed patterns which create small spaces to colour within or to colour over if that’s too much detail for your liking. The pictures are fairly realistic in their outlines but then a little less so with the patterns within so you are free to colour using realistic or outlandish colour schemes and either would work equally well on these beautiful drawings. There is no writing on the pages but some have spaces where you could easily add your own patterns or animals to truly make this book your own. This book is really beautiful and perfect for all fans of gardens, butterflies and flowers and it’s another spectacular addition to Anastasia’s growing Colour Me Mindful collection.
