I used a mix of M. Graham and Golden acrylics on canson’s mixed media paper; plus a copic multiliner pen, and white and pink gel pens for highlights.
In choosing my colors, I let the different sections of the mandala guide me. It’s easy to do. First look at the section you’re about to color/paint. Then look over at your colors, which ever one grabs your “attention” first, use that one. The more you do this the easier it gets to know which color to use. Soon you’ll look at a section and you’ll hear the color being said in your head. …at least that’s how it’s working for me these days. 🙂

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
