Coasters to Color

I have to confess,  I love coffee 🙂   I’m also a messy coffee drinker with slight OCD.   What this means is that I spend quite a lot of time cleaning my white desk to make sure it doesn’t have coffee stains on it 🙂    It was clear that I needed a coaster to set my coffee cup on, and avoid some of the cleaning duties that I self impose on myself.   I was going to make myself a coaster to color in, but then I seen that some were already available.

The coasters are available in sets of  2, 4 and 6.     I purchased a set of two.    In addition to the coasters you also receive a corresponding amount of mandala images to color and cut out for use with your coaster.   You have a choice of 36 images to choose from when ordering.     I ordered  a set of 2 coasters which means that I was able to choose 2 designs.

I have to confess that I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of designs on offer that I found selecting just two quite difficult.    I do not color a lot of mandalas so I was having difficulty choosing something that I could imagine colored as a finished product.     A minor niggle is that I would have preferred to receive some more designs with my order.   I would have preferred to buy a design pack with a variety, say 6, in it that I could choose from.

The coasters arrived in less than a week and were packed to perfection in a sturdy card envelope.    In addition to the two coasters and the designs in a protective plastic sheet there was also a personalised message tag from the store.     I have to say that the customer support for this store was excellent.  I failed to correctly identify the designs that I wanted with my order, and the store went above and beyond to ensure that they clarified the order with me before sending.

Fortunately, I had the good sense to copy the designs before I colored.   I was desperately wanting to play with my Inktense pencils and used them for my first experiment with coloring the coasters.   I made quite a mess 🙂   Luckily,  I still had the originals to copy and color for my second experiment – not quite as messy as the first effort 🙂

The coasters are a two part pack made of acrylic (easy to clean).    You simply undo the coaster and slip your design in, make a cup of coffee and enjoy 🙂   The coasters have three little rubber feet on them to ensure they rest easily on surfaces without marking.

I really like the two part coaster system because it is easy to swap the images out.    At the moment, I’m not happy with my experimental coloring that I did for the coasters.  There is nothing stopping me coloring them again in a different medium or color palette.    In fact, there is nothing stopping me from cutting out coaster shapes from other things that I have colored in and using them instead.    This means that I can have a ton of variety with my coasters, changing out the images when it suits me.     I love #coloringwithapurpose so coasters with an interchangeable image to color are a fave with me.

I’m Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I’m all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
