Many More Mandelas

Sometimes the beginnings are quite boring!

But….just keep adding color! Use the colors you like. 

I tried to keep each circle around the same size.

Circles…..so many combinations!

To spotlight the mandelas…..I removed the color from the rest of the picture.

I like the imperfections….the lines aren’t so straight.  Unevenly spaced, lopsided, original.  However, when I get the chance….I’m going to digitize one of these mandela pages (also Circle or Mania) and …..re-color & re-arrange! 

Yea….even though I adore colored pencils, my first love…is…the…marker!

LOVE these! They must take a long time to finish due to all the little details.

I love markers, too, but I don't get your results!

Thanks so much for your kind comments! Make sure you use thicker paper if you're working with markers b/c they WILL bleed thru....I did a marker review in January...check out the link: http://geeden.blogspot.com/2013/01/marker-review2nd-edition.html

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
