Here are my first two mandalas. I have joined the challenge to make 100 mandalas in 100 days. I really liked making the 3-D one.
Ode to Autumn:stained tissue paper leaves on a lilac bush branch. I created this as a centerpiece for our Women’s Fall Retreat this Saturday.
Close-ups to show detail. And that, my friends, is how I play!
Here’s how the bird transfer looks when done. See how nicely he fits into the overall piece?
And next for some collage papers. I looked for some in my stash that had circles & a little contrast with the paint. I ran across this bird while “auditioning” papers, & knew it needed this home. The bird is a transfer, so it’s upside-down. The music just seemed right, & the color worked, so it went on too. This process is very much intuitive.
