Flower of Life mandala Mixed media

So happy to have another piece finished in my Mixed Media Mandala series.

This one is inspired by the Flower of Life design, which you can also see in my about section here.

I had a lot of fun creating this background with acrylic and spray paint, then laying the collage pieces over the top to form this pattern.

I also re-opened my Society6 shop here so am slowly starting to pop lovely new work back into it. So if you are interested in prints and other products, please take a look. I am absolutely in love with the way this design looks on products for the home.

mondaymandala_petals

For today’s Mandala, I gathered some gorgeous petals into my journal from some of the beautiful flowers on my balcony. Before pressing them I decided to create a lovely colourful #MondayMandala to enjoy. I hope you like it too. Pink and yellow are one of my favourite colour combos!

Here is the lovely Mandala. It was lots of fun to feel the delicate petals between my fingers as I gently placed them down to form this pattern. I cant wait to see how the pressed versions come out next week!

Happy Monday! This week, I am inspired again by the abundant lavender plant that is blooming on my balcony. I shared my nature journal pages in the blog post here and wanted to play a little more with the sketches to create a mandala.

Above is a mandala I created with watercolor freehand and the one below is created by repeating a scanned colored sketch into photoshop and copying the design to form a mandala shape. I hope you like them!

Rainbows have been appearing frequently and the sign of life in the form of new buds appearing is […]
