First, let me say that I am NOT a fan of the “new” Gutenberg editor that WordPress has gone to. For some unknown reason, and unlike the “classic” editor, when I add an image to my post, it doesn’t show up. If I add all my images to my media library first, and then add them to a post, they show up fine. Not the end of the world, but certainly irritating.
I found myself with some free time the other evening and decided to try some more dot mandalas in Procreate. I love how easy it is to control the size of the dots and to erase my (many!) mistakes. For now, I’ve been sticking with pre-made color palettes.
I like the purples and blues in this one, though I think I started too small in the middle. Or maybe I should have stopped a few layers sooner? I’m debating whether I want to offer these for sale as prints in my Etsy shop.
I was still having fun playing around, so I made a second mandala.
This one reminds me of cat ears. 😛 I like the color scheme, but not sure I’m happy with the final design. I could go back and play around with it some more, but I usually end up feeling like I should have just left well enough alone. So for now, this is it.
If I do offer them as prints (digital downloads) in my Etsy shop, I’m wondering whether I should sell them as-is, with the background, or if I should delete the background and let people choose their own. Or maybe both?
We’ll see what happens. Right now, I’m in the middle of sanitizing and cleaning the classrooms I will be in charge of this year – assuming school opens on time. Problems for another day!
