There are days when I can’t get my head around any project. I want to create but I want it to be easy, simple, cheerful! Well, this rainbow mandala is one of those projects that I ended up with during those crazy days…
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started off by scribbling all over a small art journal with my Inktense pencils.
I then used a baby wipe to liquify the pencil marks and create a fun rainbow of color for my background. I constantly used a fresh part of the baby wipe in order not to blend the colors to mud.
I grabbed the 6×6 Geo Explosion stencil, some black acrylic paint and a makeup sponge to paint in the mandala. Instead of centering it in the middle of the page, I opted to split the mandala off the edges of the two pages.
The last step was to doodle away! I used the open shapes the stencil created to add white onto the black background. I added a few black doodles as well. To tie both sides of the mandala together, I added white bubbles across the background. And there you have it…an easy way to add some color and design to your art journal without too much thinking!
