Welcome to Life Documented 2018 (19th May) Week 20 with Pat Tillery
Week 20: Theme: Mandalas
Prompt: Scrappy Mandala
Technique: Make template or use punch and use scraps to create a colorful background for a mandala.
Quote: “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” Nelson Mandela
I’m always looking for uses for the growing pile of gel prints and scraps. I love both the geometry and the opportunity to doodle endlessly within the mandala.
Punch a circle and 8 ovals or use a template to create similar shapes. Glue circle and evenly space ovals around circle.
Start the mandala with some guide dots. I do love the Presto correction pen for a bold white line. Opaque gel and paint pens also work well on gel prints.
Start building the mandala.
Doodles and repeated patterns become a mandala.
How about using a diamond template to make a mandala?
So many patterns to create the mandala.
I thought I was finished.
Then I saw colored opaque pens. Another opportunity to continue doodling.
I’ll stop for now. Wait-what if I put tiny dots around the yellow dot?
