Simple Blessings & Garden Blessings Coloring Books by Karla Dornacher {Review & Giveaway}



The hot new thing right now seems to be adult coloring books. As an artist I'm all for it. It allows my brain to relax and be creative and restores the frazzled ends of me. Imagine my excitement when one of my favorite artists created her very own coloring books.

I've enjoyed Karla Dornacher's work for several years now and was overjoyed to get my hands on her lovely coloring books. The tag line on her covers is "Scriptures and Inspirations to Color Your World." Such a wonderful description of what each book contains. 


As you can see in the above picture the the line work is beautiful and just begs you to fill it in with all sorts of color. 

Karla has included a very generous copyright that allows you to coy the pictures for your personal use over and over. If you have grandkids, or a Bible study group, or a Sunday School class these books would be perfect. I usually use colored pencils but as a little experiment I ran one of the pictures off on watercolor paper and used my watercolors. I love how it is turning out.


If you are a Bible journaler like me you are especially going to like the Bible Journaling Bookmarks that are included in the Garden Blessings Coloring Book. Theses fit perfectly in the Single Column Journaling Bibles that are so popular right now. Even if you are not using a journaling Bible you can still use these as a tip in.

In fact I have plans to use several of the pages as tip ins. My idea is to reduce them down a bit and run them off on cardstock and then color and insert in my Journaling Bible.

So by now you are probably wondering, how can I get a copy for myself? Below are the links to purchase a copy or two of both books.

Simple Blessings

If you want a hard copy of the book you can order it from Karla's Etsy Shop or Amazon.
If you would rather have it immediately you can do an instant download at Karla's Etsy Shop.


Garden Blessings

If you want a hard copy of the book you can order it from Karla's Etsy Shop or Amazon.

  1. These are fabulous! I have been wanting to find some Momma coloring books so I could join in on the fun when the 3 year old pulls his out, but I didn't want something that felt "frivolous." This looks like an excellent way to incorporate God's Word into our everyday "mundane." :) Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  2. Oooh, I love these! My birthday is in 2 weeks, and I've requested an "adult" coloring book and colored pencils. I think the pencils will just have a nice 'feel' and I'm looking forward to some peaceful times coloring. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway :) I love the Christian theme of these.
