Week 21 of Journal 52 is 'Making a Mandala.' This is the second Mandala I have made, the first being back in Color and Design. I did it in Gouache and it was a time-consuming bear that I don't have fond memories of. I was determined to make this fun, loose and colorful!I started with a blank background, then created my circles out of India Ink. I 'piled' on the watercolor in concentrated circles, creating almost a color wheel.Here's where it got fun! I sprayed *more like soaked* the pages with my spray bottle. I used a baby wipe to clean out the center of the circle.
For finishing touches I added the 'MIX-IT' and 'BE FREE' decals, which I actually found on a tag from my new bra... You never know where you'll find something cool to use in a collage!
