Mandala 1

I love looking at the intricate designs in mandalas.  Since joining the facebook group Ornation Creation, I've branched out a little in my pattern making and started playing around with the concept of drawing mandalas, I have to admit, I do cheat a little by using a compass and sometimes a ruler but as you can see, most of this is hand drawn with all my wonky lines.

This is the first Mandala I've done without using a template.  I loved the way it looked in just black ink, but adding a splash of red just lifted it brilliantly.  Instead of taking a photo, I scanned this as a jpeg on my printer, it's great, no shadows from a lousy photographer (me)!

Hope you like it.

    1. Thanks Birgit. I did use a compass to get nice circles!
