Coloring Products & Prizes!

Hi Everyone, 

Coloring is SO popular, that in the last month I’ve been approached by several companies asking if I would design a line of ‘Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play’ products. There are not enough hours in the day to create all of the different concepts which have been proposed… and I would REALLY appreciate your help deciding what to design. To thank you for sharing your opinion, I’m offering four fabulous prizes— and the good news for all the international subscribers— you can enter! Here are the prizes:               
My new 2016 Scripture Calendar (from Hopper Press)
& two packages of Scripture Clear Stamps (from Impression Obsession)

 

DO Magazine’s 1st TWO issues (the Premiere Issue, shown below, and the 2nd issue, which will be on newsstands November 15th)
2 Zenspirations Cool Cups (from Tree Free Greetings)
GRAND PRIZE: A set of whatever products get made (based on YOUR input!). These are some of the products under consideration.
Below are close up views of the box of sticky notes:

THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts… I greatly appreciate your input!                                                 
I spent some time this evening looking through all of the cool images which have been posted in the Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play Facebook Group this week. If you are a Color & Creativity Enthusiast, please take a few minutes to check them out... you can look at the feed, but the real treat is checking out the albums, where you can see the variety of ways that different artists interpret the same design. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1471158256528576/.                                               
Last week I posted two free downloadable designs from one of my upcoming books in the Zenspirations blog, and I invite you to use them (or any of my other illustrations) as a springboard for your own creative efforts. Go ahead and add patterns, borders, and additional icons. Experiment with color and embellishments... and I encourage you to make the design more meaningful by adding whatever words call to your soul. You don't have to be an experienced artist to create... this is a chance to let YOUR creativity shine! And if you'd like me to consider including your work in one of my books, you can share your interpretation of any of my designs by posting a photo in the appropriate album. I look forward to seeing what you do!                                                               
Stay Zenspired,
Joanne

3. All three!
4. I prefer the white background. It can be difficult to match up the color and shine/matte of something already colored.
5. I'd prefer to color the inside borders
6. Journals, pen cases, file folders, calendars, key chains

7. coasters, luminaria
8. alcohol markers, colored pencils, regular permanent markers
