  • Journey Through the Void

    In between updating my website, creating mandalas and starting work on my next uni assignment, Ive been just a little bit busy – but the website and mandalas have been great fun to do!

    Universe Void Mandala

    Still travelling through the void, I made this ‘universe void’ mandala. While I was making it, I had a slight accident with my bottle of white acrylic paint. I accidentally knocked it over, spilling white paint all over my desk. Not being one to see anything go to waste, I quickly opened up another journal and used a paint brush to mop up the paint.

    White Round Mandala

    This is the result – a white, void mandala. I love the textures made by the thick ridges of paint!

    "For the darkness..."

    This last mandala was inspired by a song called ‘The Dark’ by Mary Grigolia.

    Digital Wizardry!

    Today I started out by sticking a mixture of all kinds of paper to a sheet of watercolour paper. I followed this with a light brayering of white acrylic paint to blend everything together. Then decided I would play some more with the flower stencil I used yesterday and ended up with this image.

    Flower Pattern

    I couldn’t decide what to do with it next. So I scanned it into the computer and stated playing. This was my favourite of all the blends I came up with.

    Flower Pattern Blend

    I liked it, but I wanted to take it further. It occurred to me that it would look cool as the pattern on a christmas tree shape, so I set off on a hunt for some Christmas tree brushes. I found some beauties here at Photoshop Graphics

    Christmas Card 2

    Of all the Christmas Tree shapes in the brush set, this was my favourite! But I still wasn’t finished!I decided to create my first Christmas card of the year – well two actually! I think I prefer the one without the writing on the front. What do you think?

    Quite a productive day really from one simple piece of artwork!
