Reduce stress and promote creativity by coloring these beautiful paisley designs.

Popular around the world, paisley patterns are unique, curvy designs that decorate textiles, wallpaper, handicrafts, and much more. Dating back to 200 AD, paisley designs originally flourished in Asia and later became known throughout Europe and North America. It’s said by some that the Beatles brought the motif to the US in the 1960s’ Summer of Love—and that was what led to pop culture icons like the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix embracing them; Prince paying tribute to them with his company, Paisley Park Records; and even Fender selling a Pink Paisley guitar.

Paisley prints were also embraced by the public—quickly covering fashionable clothing, interior designs, and art. Today they continue to be popular in these arenas; they’ve also spread to things like screensavers, iPhone cases, and all forms of crafted items. Yet they’re difficult for most artists to make themselves. It takes a special know-how to create them, and Paisleys: Coloring for Everyone provides that.

Paisleys: Coloring for Everyone has easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for readers to understand the best paisley color methods, plus thirty-eight designs for them to remove from the book, practice on, and frame and hang if they desire. Ten bright illustrations accompany them as examples.
