My Wonky Mandala



I finished the insert for my record sleeve art journal page. Remember this?


It was a day when I really needed something meditative to do, so I made the insert into a mandala. Here's how it turned out...



Here's a detail shot...
I used my Pitt Manga Marker set (LOVE THESE), plus a variety of colored brush markers. Michael saw it and right away was like "here, let me trim that up for you - it's a little off-kilter" HA. I'm like "NO ITS SUPPOSED TO BE WONKY!" He grinned. He knew it was supposed to be wonky. He just likes to tease me. This is our usual banter - he keeps me laughing!

I also finished binding my final Full-Tilt Boogie journal last night - the grand finale is done! Yeayyy! I will share some photos soon!

I wish you a wonderfully creative weekend my friends!

Wow, wow, wow... love your wonky mandala, and what a great idea to put it in the record sleeve... I might steal this idea for my own record album... (have you seen it on my blog? A photo of the basis is here and a pic of the first 'done' page is here ) And your Michael is a humorous guy for sure! Say hi to him and enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for the headsup on the manga pens. Will be getting some for my daughter.

I love the mandala.

This is so cool. It makes me think of the record that would normally be inside the sleeve. Thanks for the tip about the Manga markers. I will try them out.

This is gorgeous! I can't wait to see the last one. I've never even started on my first. I'm so behind.
