May Mandala

I love making mandalas.  When I look back at them I'm amazed by how they perfectly reflect my state of mind when I made each one. Mandalas are fun and calming to make. Your brain stops buzzing and before you know it, you have left the stress of the day behind and are wrapped up in the soothing shapes . Once you know a few tricks, they are also quite simple to make! If you can color in a coloring book, you can create your own beautiful, shabby mandala.

This one is 16"x16" on a wooden painting panel. Lots of gold leaf, vintage papers, glitter and a special jewel!

P.S. I've received a lot of interest in mandalas and so, I'm thinking of offering an internet video class. Let me know if you would like to take a class teaching you how to create a personal, shabby mandala from start to finish!
