If I had it my way, I’d make a mandala every week. Sadly they are time-consuming and require so much time to complete that doing them for pleasure would interfere with the business side of Mainely Quilling. LOL
This blue and white floral mandala is 8×8. It has about five shades of blue in it. It was initially based off a free coloring book design but somewhere after the center dome it veered off on its own path. Which is fine. I have made mandalas before based on a design that I liked and the same thing happened – I started out with intentions of making it very similar but it didn’t end up that way. I think as a mandala builds outward, you realize what you can and can’t do in the spaces that are left and you make alterations. At least that’s what keeps happening when I make them. Had it not been for for the blue and white striped “petals” I might have finished this in one night. I plan to do some more soon because who doesn’t love mandalas?
Now available on my Etsy shop.
