Making Mandalas

I am happy to announce that I am finally selling my mandalas on Etsy! If you are wondering, here is how I make hand cut mandalas....

1. I draw a design, using "stencil" pieces that I make so that it is more precise.

2. I cut out the design and pop the pieces out.

3. I have a lot of left over little pieces that are also pretty and I like to use them to make a new design.

4. I flip it over (to hide pencil marks) and pair it with another lovely color behind to make the design stand out.
