Oooooh!!! I’m loving these mandalas!

This is another mandala from my “Mandala Kit” I found at Barnes & Noble. I absolutely love them!

This one was very fun to color. When it started as just a blank design, it seemed simple and even a little boring. That was definitely the wrong impression!

The more I colored, the more different designs I began to see. I saw several different flowers – one, interior, sort of daisy-like, and then the larger outer one, the one you can see above with the pink petals, that I think maybe looks a little like a lotus flower.

Once it was complete, when looking at it, it seemed to just get more and more complex. I like the little knot at the center, and the overall feel of this design. This is so fun!!

Pop over to Collage Diva’s site for more truly fabulous mandalas, a heaping helping of inspiration – and an opportunity to enter a contest and ATC swap!

    That’s a fun project. Thanks for the idea. I intend to use it as an assignment for my adult students.

    This is beautiful !!!

    • Thank you! But all I did was the coloring – the design was there to start with. That’s what’s so great about the “kit” – I get to leave the drawing (and complexity of design) to others – and just “fill in the blanks.” I find it really does help clear my mind – I’m not so sure it would work as well if I had to do the designing part, too. Thank you for your comment.
