Mandala Monday #8 - late!

Hello folks, I hope you had a Marvellous Mandala Monday!  I wasn't feeling particularly Marvellous and I forgot to post. So sorry, but here it is, a day late.

This Mandala was so fine in detail that I moved onto fineliner marker pens for it.  I love it, it made for some great moments of concentration and now it's amazing to look at.  For now, it is staying in the book with all the rest of them, but maybe someday I'll come up with a great way to use them in something bigger.

Feel free to share links to your mandalas in the comments, or any Instagram accounts with great mandalas in them!

I look forward to sharing more Mandalas with you soon!  Keep it Marvellous!  x

Mandala Monday #7

...and a Marvellous Mandala Monday to you again!

This week's mandala is another limited colour palette with plenty of uncoloured parts again!  This one is a bit patchy because I was using water-based markers this time.  I'm not the biggest fan of water-based markers, but I am a fan of using what you have to make art, so I thought I'd have a bash.  They are misbehaving miscreants!  Back to alcohol markers, methinks!

How about you?  Any mandalas to share?  Link in the comments.  Even if the link doesn't click, I will copy and paste and go see your lovely work!

Mandala Monday #6

A Majestic Mandala Monday to you!

This one was a first for me- using a limited colour palette and leaving some parts of the mandala uncoloured!  I really love to look at this one.  I can get lost in it.  I particularly like the gradient details in the largest petal shape in the close-up.  Some of the pencils I used were metallic ones, and I just adore the effect.

Have you a Mandala to share?  Please do link to it in the comments.  Share the Mandala love!

Mandala Monday #5

Here's another Mandala Monday, a little late again, sorry!  Another one from my fantastic Mandala colouring book, this one goes round in a rainbow circle of sorts.  I really enjoyed leaving parts of this un-coloured.  It's like having another colour in my palette!

I have been drawing Mandalas too, but I'm going to get through the coloured ones for now, so tune in next week for another page in my Mandala book!

Got a Mandala Monday post too?  Link it in the comments section.  I'd love to go have a peek!

Have a Marvellous Mandala Monday!
