Hi everyone, here is part 3 of the lovely showcase of work. Just a small selection that came out of the Mixed Media Mandala class I taught last year.
This journey is a beautiful progression from mandala doodles and loosening up to exploring paint, collage/other materials and then onto the Mixed Media Mandala Masterpiece where students create a final piece of artwork to hang on their wall.
So part 3 is all about collage and nature. During these lessons we explored different papers, shapes, combining with other materials. We also took ourselves outside to explore using nature in the mandala form. The creative muscles are really stretched during these lessons and everyone has so much fun exploring. Thanks so much all for your gorgeous artwork and putting your trust and exploration into the process.

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who took my class and traveled through this amazing Mixed Media Mandala journey together. You are all so inspiring and talented. Part 4 will be posted tomorrow!

Would you like to explore the sacred circle and mixed media mandalas further? I would love for you to join me to dive deeply in the 4 week “Mixed Media Mandalas” online class.
By the end of class, you will have a journal full of sacred circles and at least one finished mixed media piece of artwork to hang on your wall.
