Print out, colour in and stick on your fridge




The Pattern Library

This is where all of my patterns will be kept. I'll be tagging them so you can go straight to your favourites. The tags will appear in a list on the right. Just right click the link that says "Download and Print" to save the larger image to your hard drive. Then print it and get colouring! If you like your coloured-in picture, take a photo of it or scan it and send it to me. There is a Flickr group that I've set up for your coloured in patterns. I'll post the best to the blog. Keep checking back for the latest uploads!

Although all of the patterns are shown in strips the full downloadable image is much larger. On the left is a thumbnail example of how a full image looks.

I've recently become aware of this art movement through the Zentangle group on Flickr. It seems that Zentangles are also perfect for colouring. Have fun colouring this page...
