As you can see: I've finished the mandala doodle that I began yesterday. This is the first time I've used colour in my mandala doodles. I think the use of the cherry (Marvy Le Plume II - no.65 brush pen) creates the illusion of the white parts having been cut out and placed on a red background. Admittedly this is an irregular wonky mandala but I found it relaxing and fun to create - which is the most important thing for me.
There is something therapeutic about mandalas and indeed they've been created for hundreds of years by spiritual groups and artists. One explanation of what a mandala is and can be, as well as some examples, can be found on Margi Gibb's website here. But I'd highly recommend you visit Tammy at Daisy Yellow - her mandalas are beautiful!
I've always liked mandala art work but never tried to create one myself until aedm2010. What creative work/technique/medium have you tried for the first time during aedm2010?
