I’ve been looking at CraftyMadre’s mandalas and wanted to know even more, so I googled ‘mandala’ and came across this blog which gave a tutorial based on doodling, which I love to do: http://thistimethisspace.com/2011/04/03/making-mandalas-a-magical-process/

The girls and I had a go this evening (I drew round a bean can) and I am surprised and pleased with mine. I really got into the zone doing them. What’s also interesting is that the colours I chose to use influenced the outcome. The green has a plant/outdoor motif, the red and grey is more space like and the pinks look like sweets. Totally unconscious changes in style. Weird, but cool.

Now I want to make a giant one
