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.
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!
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.
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.
Next is a painting that I did at 5 a.m. on Sunday. I woke up and for some reason could not go back to sleep until I got up and painted. The paper is a little experiment of mine. 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.
