This Week’s Creative Projects

This week, I’ve been able to work on and finish a few creative projects. The first is another mandala, which was inspired by Julie Gibbons’ free 5 Days of Mandala Magic workshop. The second is a dream board made for this month’s full moon which was a few days ago.


Watercolor & Ink Heart Mandala

Below is one of the new pieces of art from over the weekend. Altogether, there were four. For today, I want to share a piece that I began a long time ago, and honestly forgot about. I love making mandalas and other types of things in ink. This time, I decided to color it in with watercolor. The entire process was really enjoyable. Bet I do more with ink and watercolor in the future. I’ll share the other pieces as the week goes by. It felt so good to spend the weekend creating!

Mandala In Ink

Over the weekend, I indulged in creativity. I did some work on one of the scarves that I am making for a charity project. I also sat down on Saturday and worked all afternoon on a mandala which was done with ink on watercolor paper. There’s just something so relaxing for me in making stuff like this.

Flower Mandala

Psychedelic Daisies and New Mandala Started

Here are a few things that I worked on over the weekend. The first is the start of a new mandala. This one is going to have color, which is why I am doing it a little differently. We’ll see how it goes.

I glued together a few magazine pages before slathering them with gesso. The painting itself is 100% watercolor. I am not entirely done with it yet..I want to do some flower repair on the biggest one. I did that dropped down bit before it became apparent that they flowers were turning into daisy like things. Yes, both pics were taken with a webcam. I’ll take some with my actual camera and post them when the work is complete.
