Design you own fractal art coloring page

While I was developing a new technique to make fractal patterns out of clay, I decided to come up with some basic templates.  I brought these templates to my elementary school students, and they came up with some beautiful designs.  According to my motto: freedom within structure,  the students thrived realizing that complex designs can be built from simple shapes.  I handed out the square template made of repeating triangles, and told them to create a very simple design in one of the triangles.  Then I asked them to repeat the patten in each of the triangles until they got too small.
