Large Colorful Mandala 10

Flowers and more flowers. Done with Derwent Inktense Pencils on 16″ x 20″ Carson Artboard. Inktense is like watercolor pencils, the only difference is once water is applied, it’s permanent. One tip I used was, if you outline in color pencils, it will help with the bleeding. So, I used Prismacolor pencil on the outline.

Polymer Clay Crosses

I spent some time creating crosses from polymer clay, which was left over from all of the other polymer clay projects.

First the pretty crosses:

The difficult cross:

Folding clay and braiding clay is a little bit challenging.

100 Mandala Challenge – The Next Ten

I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My first ten mandalas for this challenge are posted on the 100 Mandala Challenge page.   I am on day 13 and I am seven ahead.  That will come in handy when I start my long drive to the south.  Below are drawings 011 through 020.
