Wait.. What a Mandala??

Today it's my turn over at Art Anthology to share my mandala..... NOW let me start by telling you this was really a challenge for me :) 

Heck I had never even heard of a Mandala before our team challenge as issued.So I did what everyone does.... I goggled it.


Syllabification: man·da·la
Pronunciation: /ˈmandələ, ˈmən- 


1A geometric figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism.

Hmm.. helpful right??? 

No but then I started checking out images and I was truly surprised mandalas are really everywhere if you are looking for them! So lets take a peak at my first ever Mandala! Using lots of beautiful Art Anthology Velvet's!

So how did I start this collage of color??  I started by sketching out my design.. here is a look at my design sketched and my first colors.

After adding all my color......

I went back and added some black to define my lines and cover up a few boo boos :) and with my white uni ball in had I added a few doodles and my first Mandala was done!

Some details just because...

I just love the dimension added with Art Anthology's Dimensional Crystals

Thanks so much for stopping by!
 I hope that I have inspired you to make you own Mandala!! I know That I had a lot of fun creating mine... I'm sure I will have more to share. After all I keep doodling them everywhere :)

Painting by Numbers is as easy as 1-2-3!

Hello All! I'm up today over at Art Anthology! Today I am sharing a sweet little canvas using lots of my very favorite things! Just look at all the beautiful Art Anthology I pulled out to start with!

To get started I added a bit of tissue paper to my canvas just to add a bit of texture, I really want the canvas to remain pretty smooth....

Now a touch of Colorations and poof a great background to start playing with!

A bit of Embossing for the tiniest bit of texture :)

Next I had some fun with a stencil!

Then it was time for the fun yet easy part! Painting by numbers (without the numbers of coarse). 

After painting my stamped image I added lots of dimension & texture to my canvas using Art Anthology Dimensional Crystals, a few odds and ends and few doodles!

 Here is a look at the final product :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope that I have inspired you to try something simple to keep you creating something beautiful! If you do get crafty please share you projects with us over on the  Art Anthology Facebook Page we would love to see them!!

 I just love working with primary colors!

Here is a peek at the beautiful Art Anthology Products products that I used:

I started by covering my page with some torn dictionary pages. After applying the dictionary pages I gave my page a quick whitewash using some Art Anthology Gesso and a touch of water.

Next I started building my background using Glorious, Heart and Ink Spot Colorations Spray.
