The art of drawing Mandalas is ancient and relaxing. For some it is a spiritual experience and for others an artistic out-pouring. I can't draw to save my life but I can make ANYTHING with scraps of paper. After enjoying several original designs via Google images I found a tutorial. I learned the basic idea and started making Mandala designs on cards.
My first card was bright, cheery, and a little off center.
My second card was grander with touches of red and copper.
When I thought I had the general idea down I made a standard size card in gold and blue. This design is much more detailed and exacting. Not perhaps how the Mandala was meant to be produced, but I was VERY happy with the result.
The website I used for instructions has a basic step by step as well as a nicely done video with inspirational music.
