Bonjour! I am feeling a bit French today! How have you been doing? I am almost three weeks into online school, and gosh isn’t it getting a bit hectic. I have my AS exams as well in October/November to top all those scoops of life up. 😁Today’s post is with regards to a MANDALA PROJECT I did a while back!
When I started with the Mandala the plan was to fill the entire page with a Black and White only Mandala. But after I completed the crust layer, I decided this mandala has too much black in it to make it look pleasing to the eye. Hence, my artistic mind decided time to chop this mandala and paste it on my journal, then treasure it as a memory with all my life. The mandala sat for a good two days in my journal. Suddenly on the third day at about 10pm, my brain suggested adding a floral pattern to the journal page since it looked way too blank. Inspired, I stayed up till 11pm sketching the floral pattern using a pencil.
I decided to do drips of patterns amidst the floral patterns, just to give the artwork a refreshing look. Plus the drips were wonderful in taking up space, hence, I didn’t have to push myself to come up with new floral patters. Next was inking the floral patterns.
The final part of the project was to add some color to the floral pattern. I always choose bright colors to make the artwork look attractive.
I used normal black pens that I used to write with for school. Both gel and non-gel, Gel pens for the thicker/ outline lines and non-gel to fill in the artwork with patterns. For the coloring bit of the artwork, I used Crayola Supertips, I have the 50 pack. I would highly recommend you get those for yourself if you are looking for great markers to use.
