Hey guys, I’ve created another free download-able template to help you with your art! This printable grid template I created to help draw patterns to use for mandalas or other artwork.

This grid template is a great way keep track of patterns to use for future mandala drawings and also to practice your drawing techniques.

You can download and print off this template then either draw straight on it or trace underneath another sheet of paper.

Use the one with dark lines to trace and the one with lighter lines to draw straight on it.

Pattern drawing can be a nice soothing and calming activity, similar to making mandalas or zentangle inspired artwork.

Free Valentine’s Day Cards to Colour Yourself!

valentine's day cards to color

February 14th is coming up soon, so make your loved one a beautiful and unique card with these 3 free printable and color-able Valentine’s Day cards.

Click here to download the Free Valentine’s Day cards in PDF format from Dropbox

I always forget to buy a card for Valentine’s day, so I usually wind up DIY-ing one last minute.  Inspired by that idea, I decided to create these free color-able Valentine’s cards that can be printed and colored in yourself!

For best results, I recommend printing these on card stock and coloring them in with decent quality pens or colored pencils.

These are designed to be printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper and then folded in half.  The inside is blank so you can add your own personal message and say whatever your heart desires!

The card designs are inspired by the Zentangle drawing style which incorporates black and white doodle art style patterns.

Check out my other free printable coloring pages here.

Have a great and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cheers,

Mandala Drawing Templates

mandala worksheet templates

My friends, I have created some templates to help you draw mandalas more easily!  

Using these, you will no longer need to use a compass or random household objects to draw circles for your mandalas.

To download the templates: Click on the image of the template to open in full size, then right click and download or print straight from your browser.

Then, you can either draw straight on the print-out or place it underneath another sheet of paper to trace.

In person the lines underneath are more apparent, so it is very easy to see and trace them. I simply used a few paperclips to keep the 2 pieces of paper together, but you could use a bit of tape or something else you have handy.

Note: The image above shows the template under printer paper so it may show through sketchbook paper slightly less, but should still be well enough to trace.

This second template with no cross lines works better if you are going for a more free-style of mandala design.

Here are a couple of mandalas I made with these templates:

black and white mandala

I used the first template to draw the coloured mandala by tracing it, and for the black and white mandala I drew it straight on the printed out template without the cross lines.

I hope you guys will find these templates useful, I know I will be using them!

No more drawing circles with cups and plates for me.

If you wind up using these templates feel free to link a photo your artwork in the comments section below!  Or tag me on Instagram @julierindesigns. I’d love to see your creations.
