Colouring Book for Adults printable Exotic Designs. Instant download.

Most of the colouring books available in shops and online have drawings on both sides of each page.

I have read a lot of customer reviews for these books online and that is the one thing that irks most people. When you colour a page with your pencils, gel pens (or whichever colouring  tool you choose), it ruins the drawing on the back of the same page. That makes it harder to get good colouring results on either the first or the second drawing.

When you print my book, you can print each drawing on an individual page (or have it printed for you at a larger size). And you can print the colouring pages at home on art paper!

Here’s a sneaky peak look inside the pages of Exotic Designs as a one minute slideshow on my YouTube channel.


You Have Paper Choices for Printing at Home

  1. Regular copy paper.
  2. Drawing pad paper, cut down to size to feed through your printer (or buy an A4 or A3 drawing (cartridge paper pad).
  3. Watercolour paper, cut down to size to feed through your printer (or buy an A4 or Large A3 watercolour pad).


Colouring book for adults Exotic Designs by Jenny Gollan instant download

Available in 3 PDF sizes.

Choose yours depending on your printer requirements.

SMALL – You receive both the A4 and the U.S. Letter printable sizes in one purchase.

In Australia we commonly print in A4 paper in our home printers. In the U.S. the Letter size is more commonly used. You receive both book files but please choose carefully before you print your book.

LARGE – You receive the large A3 PDF printable size.

Many people have access to the large A3 printers in their work offices. If you would prefer to print the larger size but you don’t have access to an A3 printer, you could always take the file to your favourite local print service and request and A3 print size.

Colouring Book For Adults

Colouring book for adults Exotic Designs by Jenny Gollan. Printable instant download.

If you already follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest … you know that I’ve been working on a whole set of drawings for my very first Colouring Book for Adults! I’ve named my book Exotic Designs and it’s full of intricate hand drawn artwork and zentangle designs.

I’m so excited about the launch! I’m drawing like a woman possessed every minute of the day and only have a couple of pages to complete before I make it available to the public as an instant download and print eBook.

Why are so many adults taking up colouring in?

I’ve listed a few health benefits below but in short, colouring has a de-stressing effect and many psychologists are now recommending colouring in as a brilliant relaxation technique.

Below is a sneaky peak look at the ebook cover and one of the colouring pages that will be in my first, brand new colouring book for adults.

Why colouring in is good for your health!

There are SO many reasons why you can benefit from colouring books. Physiologists from all around the world are now extolling the virtues for your mental, physical and emotional health by simply colouring in.

Not only does it help you to distress and focus, apparently it also ignites areas of the brain that we used as children but lost somewhere along the way as we became responsible, working, bill-paying adults.

  • Calming, destressing.
  • Aids sufferers of Depression.
  • Promotes general well-being and quietness.
  • Stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

I am having SO much fun creating these colouring pages that I know that it will be just the first of many colouring books. Of course, there’s no reason why your children wouldn’t enjoy colouring them in every bit as much as you will. But for now, because I know just how beneficial it is for YOUR health, if you haven’t already started colouring in …. I’m encouraging you to start playing with some colour. You’ll love it, I know you will!

Colouring book for adults. This book belongs to printable by Jenny Gollan Designs.

The best part about my Colouring for Adults eBooks is that once you have downloaded the pages, you have them forever and you can print them off as often as you like. And if you just LOVE one of your creations, you can pop it in a frame and hang it on your wall or give it to someone special as a gift.

I’m creating my colouring pages eBooks in two different sizes:

  • US Letter size, typically print at home size in the US.
  • A4 paper size, which we use on our home printers here in Australia.

It couldn’t be easier.

  • You’ll be able to download the entire book of zentangle art colouring designs in both sizes (US Letter and A4).
