It’s the perfect time of year to put down your phone, turn off the TV and get outside to enjoy some Vitamin D. And what’s better than soaking up some sun while coloring?
Grab your favorite fineline pens, colored pencils, or markers (here are some amazing supplies available on Amazon) and sit down with these free printable mindful coloring pages packed with tiny little elements — sorry if you have bad eyesight, these might not be for you.
There are four coloring pages to print and color in total. Each page is different, but all center around a similar theme. Mandalas and medallions are incorporated into each page.
I have made these specifically for bullet journals and A5 size planners. You can print them on regular US Letter size paper, but each has a faint gray cut line around the A5 size coloring page. Then, you can color them prior to or after attaching them to your bullet journal with glue or adhesive tape.
Ideas to Use Your Mindful Coloring Pages
You can simply add these pages to your bullet journal or just cut them out to color, but you can also create useful and beautiful bullet journal spreads with these pages.
With all the white space on this Om coloring page, you could easily turn this into a cover page. Pick the top or bottom and write the name of the month on it before coloring it in.
You could also write mindful and positive quotes or affirmations on this page. Use it as a journal or to write song lyrics.
For the above page, you might choose to fill in a flower for every time you complete a habit. Think of a goal you want to achieve and then pick one action step that is can be done daily. I’ve listed some ideas below
- Practice brush lettering
- Write 500 words
- Walk 10000 steps
- No soda
Once all of the flowers are colored you will have a beautifully decorated page and you will be much closer to your goal. Perhaps you will pick a reward for yourself once you fill it all in.
Similarly to the above page, this medallion with a negative om symbol could also be used for a habit tracker. Or you could use it as a mood tracker over the course of multiple months.
Likely one of my favorite pages, this one might be able to serve as a mood tracker also. Use a pencil and a compass to divide it into 30 equal rings and then color those areas each day in corresponding to your mood. There is enough room for a header at the top and a key at the bottom.
Due to the additional white space on this page, this page could also serve as a cover page. Write the header at the top of the page or the bottom.

The Best Coloring Supplies for these Pages
Due to the small and intricate details of these mandala coloring pages, there are certain coloring supplies better suited for them than others.
I love coloring with colored pencils. They can create soft gradients and come in a very wide range of colors.
For those on a budget, the Crayola colored pencils shown above are a great starting point. In comparison to a higher quality colored pencil like the Faber-Castell Polychromos, the lead is much harder and not as blendable or vibrant.
But, for day to day coloring that you just want to enjoy, Crayolas are a good brand that offers an array of fun colors. The pack I purchased on Amazon has 100 different colors.
For intricate coloring pages like the ones in this download, you will want to keep your pencils sharp. I use a simple electric sharpener like this one.
The other option, which may be more appealing to those who want saturated color and attention to fine detail is fineline pens.
There are a lot of great fineline pens out there, but in my experience, the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners are best for coloring. Because they have a 0.3mm nib, they are slightly smaller than the Stabilo fineliners, making them easier to get into small spaces.
With fineline pens, you won’t have the ability to create smooth gradients or transition from a more transparent color to a rich vibrant color. But, your colors will be much more saturated than colored pencils.
Other Supplies You May Need
There are two other supplies I highly recommend for printable coloring pages. These will make your life a little easier.
The first one is a straight edge cutter. While these pages do include a light gray cut line, it’s much easier and time efficient to use a straight edge cutter over a standard pair of scissors.
They are relatively inexpensive and are a great tool if you regularly use printables in your journal.
The second one is an adhesive tape. It’s far less messy than glue, easy to apply, and leaves your pages laying perfectly flat in your journal. You can snag the same Tombow Adhesive tape I have, on Amazon.
