After doing 4 different Mandelas I needed to focus on something different. I like my mandelas, but for now, they all started to look the same to me. I enjoyed my Floral Fauna a lot…it was different and it was colorful. In sticking to the flower theme I thought I’d try a single flower…..but keep enlarging it.
I came across this mandela on pinterest and I loved the color theme. So, I thought
I’d try to stick with the blues/purples/greens (the cooler colors).
But I can’t make those colors POP!! I had to bring in the rest of the wheel. Had to replace some sharpies….Sharpie gets product placement endorsements here!! Haha! I’m hoping I’ll gets some guts and grab a few of those unpopular colors.
….Applying the pigment….
I didn’t give too much thought to the background, just something graphic.

- 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!
