If you prefer something that you can use in future crafts, why not opt for stylised letters and numbers, to be used as birthday card toppers or mixed media name plaques? Kelly O'Gorman's The A-Z of Creative Colouring and The 0-10 of Creative Colouring feature fun cartoony characters and shapes making up the letters and numbers.
Mandalas and geometric designs are the perfect solutions to a busy mind – the repetitive and continual nature of the patterns can bring a sense of peace.

For those times when you fancy something magical, zodiac-style drawings, astronomical imagery and celestial designs are your go-to pages.
