Mandela Memory


The nice thing about making these mandelas is….you don’t have to have a memory.


All you need is a compass to draw the circles and many markers!


I forgot how much I relax and enjoy coloring in these mandelas.  The hardest part is deciding on the design.


I have to purposefully bring in the purples and the maroons cuz those aren’t my “go to” colors.



Just plain fun!  I reinforced the black lines to help define the shapes better.  I can’t believe it’s been a year since I did my mandela series
….not going to wait that long next time….Haha Smile

Thats it! You went and done it....I'am between sketches for the moment searching for my next drawing and now i have to make some mandelas.....I've never made one but yours are so beautiful. I wonder what markers you use and what paper? Maybe you've already told us... i'll have to poke around a little. This is just gorgeous!

I wonder...... how much thought process do you put into it as far as what doodle to use...a lot of thought or just kind of whatever pops in your head??? Hugs! deb

Thanks Uaite!
Hi Deb, get yourself some fine point sharpies or Bic's and have fun. I don't put too much thought into the layout, I just try to mix my color patterns up. Here's a marker review I posted last year! Good Luck :D

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! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
