Well, now that Hallowe'en is over
let's go back to some "technique challenges".
 This week I'd like to challenge you to
tangle a mandala

 I tried my first mandala when we tangled inside a circle.  This was drawn using assorted glass bowls to create the circles.

The wonderful Genevieve Crabe has a short video on drawing mandalas
and how to use her wonderful mandala stencils.  
 I decided to purchase a set and can't wait to try them!
With the stencils as a guide I am eager to try some points and swirls on my mandala.

Whether you use a protractor, soup bowls or Genevieve's stencils,
choose some fun tangle patterns,
take a deep breath, relax and watch what appears before you.

Have a great week!

  1. now here's one i can get into! i'm not much on the halloween stuff, but this one i can do :)

  2. My first zendala! I definitely will be trying more of these.

  3. Thank you for the kind words, Joey. I hope you have fun with the stencils.

  4. Thank you Joey for your challenges. This is the first I try and it was quite a challenge for me since I don't like mandalas. But thanks too Krishna's (from Her Sketches) idea of doing tiny mandalas I eventually managed to do one completely.
    But somehow I can't link into mr linky I must have done something wrong. ... I'll try again later.
    Thanks again and have a great WE.


I really enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas about the posts that I write here. It's nice to just say hi too!
