I still have more designs using the fabulous new Indian designs by Chocolate Baroque. Today I have a Mandala created with images from Indian Textiles. My creative Aunt Saakje introduced me to Mandalas many years ago. She creates the most beautiful designs in needlework without patterns - amazing & inspiring work!
While this isn't as symmetrical as I wanted, it is bright & again I had fun using these fabulous stamps.

I bleached the main images and then coloured with Dylusion inks using a fine point water barrel brush. I spent some time with black pigment & white Gellyroll pens to highlight. I found the outlining relaxing & meditative which creating Mandalas should be. I edged the background with a Gold Leaf pen. I added lots of rhinestones and the metal center piece to finish the design.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
