Mandala Monday 4

Mandala_4I quite like the way this mandala turned out.  The repetition of the shapes turned out better than I thought it would.

I’ve been working on some larger mandalas, with an eye towards turning them into a coloring book.  Interestingly, as I’ve worked on them, I struggle with them more than the mandalas I was drawing just for my own enjoyment.

So maybe my own enjoyment of the process has an effect on the final product.  Something to keep in mind as I go forward.

Mandala Monday 3

Mandala 3I’ve been playing around in Procreate and creating these mandalas.  The symmetry and lines of mandalas are appealing to me – so much so that I’m hoping to create (and finish!) a project with them.

I love to color while I’m watching TV or feeling stressed, and intricate images like mandalas are a favorite of mine.  I’ve also been experimenting with adding zentangle tile patterns into some of the mandalas.

I did some internet searching last week and found all kinds of uses for mandalas – wall stencils, wall decals, car/phone/laptop stickers, coloring pages, and more.  Who knew?
