The idea for this coloring ebook began when a reader asked for a coloring page version of this Be Kind hand-lettered print I shared on the blog. It has been one of my top posts for months so you all must love to color as much as I do!
This ebook has been a labor of love (and the neglecting of housework)! I’m so excited to share it with you.
Color Me Inspired Vol I is a PDF eBook full of 24 inspirational prints to color…over and over again, if you like! All pages are designed as 8×10 prints, so you can easily frame your artwork to display! Just print on letter sized paper, color, and trim down to 8×10 size.
I varied between super detailed designs and less detailed ones to leave you room to be creative and add your own details. Coloring or painting a print and framing it would make a sweet handmade gift idea too!
Please read this whole page before making your purchase. 🙂
Why an eBook?
One of the top complaints I read about existing coloring books geared toward adults is that the pages are too thin and printed on both sides, so you can’t use markers or paint.
The beauty of the eBook is you can print it on any kind of paper you want and print as many copies as you want!
- For watercolor, I suggest printing on this Linen Coverstock*.
- For markers, print on heavy white cardstock.
- These Pentel Markers* are great for coloring in small details.
- You can read more about hand-lettering and all my favorite tools/art supplies here.

What’s in it:
The 28 page PDF ebook is an instant download and is filled with 24 inspirational coloring pages. It also includes a Copyright & Print Release so you can have printed professionally should you choose to do so. The Table of Contents lists all the prints and pages by number so you can easily print just the one you want to work on.
Gumroad now accepts PayPal but I’ve also made the eBook available in my Etsy shop here.
Can I share the eBook?
- Personal use: Print is as many times as you wish!
- Classroom use: If you are a school teacher you may use pages it in your classroom. Please don’t give out full copies of the ebook.
- Claiming designs as your own/re-sales: Nope, not allowed. Please be kind. I paid to officially copyright this work. It violates digital copyright laws to share/email a copies of the eBook.
Can I gift a copy?
Yes! I love that you want to share with friends and family, so I’d love to offer a discount on the purchase of “multiple” copies. (You won’t need actual additional copies of the PDF but this will give you legal permission to share your copy of the eBook with friends and/or family.)
Simply email me and I’ll set up a custom Etsy listing just for you according to the following pricing:
- Want to add a copy? Add an extra copy at 50% off.
- Buy 5+ copies and get 50% your whole order.
Only want certain pages?
Although it’s much cheaper per page to buy the eBook, I will be adding the individual pages to my Etsy shop over the next few weeks so that you may pick and choose which pages you’d like to purchase and download so stay tuned!
I’ll also continue to share free prints and coloring pages on the blog every Monday in the Free Print of the Week series.
I’d love to see your work, so share pics on my Facebook page wall or share them on Instagram and tag me and use the hashtags #colormeinspired and #dawnnicoledesigns. (Note: I can only see the Instagram photos of those with public accounts, even if you tag me).

As this is an eBook no hardcopy will be mailed.
Due to the digital nature all sales are final.
