Meditations on Butterflies features 26 stunning North American butterfly species, from A to Z, for coloring book fans to color and complete. Readers will learn their beautiful winged markings, practice simple calligraphy, and enjoy inspiring nature quotes.

Pages also guide readers to adorn each page with butterfly and garden observations, daily gratitudes, and inspirational notes. Fifty-two additional lined pages are included (between the color plates) for weekly journaling.

Coloring book and guided journal enthusiasts using Butterflies will:

• Recharge and relax while doing something creative

• Find emotional balance through reflective journaling

• Be inspired by nature and the transformative beauty of butterflies

• Appreciate the restorative power of mindful gratitude and inspirational verse

Meditations on Butterflies features removable, perforated pages. Each finished color plate can be detached from the book and framed as personal artwork. The thick, matte, acid-free paper is archival quality and perfect for colored pencils and inks.

Be moved to peace as you draw and dream, be guided in your art by partially colored drawings, journal eloquently following cursive examples, muse with nature and her butterflies, discover the joys and truth of your own hearts story, share the beauty found there with others.
