Do you like to journal?
I’ve journaled minimally but feel it might be helpful in at least a couple areas of my life.
Before the end of 2018 I expanded my coloring journey to include creating other low content books.
It’s something I was planning on including eventually, but wasn’t sure how to go about.
Late last year I got some inspiring direction and began the adventure. More on that another time. 🙂
If you’re not sure what low content books are, they include:
- coloring books
- or anything that doesn’t have a ton of text
Journal AND Color?
Since I like to color, I thought it might inspire me to journal by having a coloring journal.
Not only can I enjoy being creative, but I can write down my goals, thoughts about the quotes, or even write some notes about what kind of pencils I’m coloring with, the palette I’m using and any feelings it helps release.
Low-Content Book Feature
Since I’m not selfish 😀 and thought they’d inspire you too, I created a series of 3 coloring journal notebooks filled with fun coloring designs, lots of blank lines for writing, and many quotes to read and ponder.
They are large format books (8.5″ x 11″) for easier for coloring.
Inside you’ll find:
- 32 small and 15 large coloring designs
- 32 creativity or inspirational type quotes
- 2 Coloring Swatch Grids for testing and experimenting with color combinations
- 2 Blotter pages you can cut or tear out to help protect the other pages from pens that bleed through
- And lots and lots of lines to write on!
Use these interactive books to enjoy your coloring hobby, record your ideas, thoughts or feelings and reflect on positivity!
All 3 books contain geometric/floral type designs I created, but Vol 2 was created from a doodle I drew and then digitally modified to create many designs.
I’ve created three quickie walk-through videos (below) so that you can see what’s inside. Above each video you’ll see links for Amazon and Etsy so you can go see them there.

Here’s a closer look at a small sample of the positive quotes you’ll see in the books:
“Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.” ~Chinese Proverb
“Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand.” ~Napoleon Hill
“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” ~Henry Ford
“Have fun: When you are truly having fun in your work, creativity flows freely.” ~Dr. John Maxwell
“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.” ~John Wooden
“In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.” ~Lee Iacocca
