This is the last week for this session of 100 Days for Mandalas, which started January 14th. Where did those 100 days go?
I have been drawn to using regular manila folders for creating art journaling mandalas. The are like mini-books.
I am filled with joy that my mandalas and the story of how they became part of my life are featured in a six page article in the 2013 spring issue of Art Journaling magazine. Here are the pages. Let them be an inspiration.
In this beautiful, crazy springtime (deep snow one day, flowers the next) the joy of earth and sky seeps into our bones, body and being. Nature calls to us with its mystery and magic and leaves its imprint on our souls.
There is an artist in Poland named Nespoon, who creates what she calls “jewelry for public spaces.” She works with the mandala shape of doilies, those circular lace shapes that maybe your grandma or great grandmother made.
The spiral of life brings us back to a familiar place, which lets us see the old with new eyes and new inspirations. These are inspirations for new mandalas.
Let these heart mandalas and images remind you to keep your heart open every day of the year. As we leave February, bring the heart energy of this month into all the months and days of your year.
February is the month we think about love and hearts. It is also Heart Awareness Month, to help bring awareness to our heart health.
This week is dedicated to the opening of hearts by all people, to send love and healing to all creatures and parts of our earth and beyond.
Today I am inspired by mandalas that show the power and beauty of hands, both the hands of humans and the hands of the Creator.
Welcome to Day One of the 2nd session of 100 Days for Mandalas. This is a creativity retreat that will hopefully inspire the making of mandalas. It is a retreat in the quiet time, when the warmth of inner creativity burns as a fire in the center of the soul. There are many ways and reasons to make mandalas. Find your way and your reason, then join in.
This is an invitation to join in a new year of creativity and inspiration with the second session of 100 Days for Mandalas. Please come join a creative circle of a quiet round the fire winter retreat (for those of us in northern part of the world) and a lazy daisy summer camp (those those in the southern part) to feel the embrace of the sacred circle of a mandala
This is part two of the encore of 100 Days for Mandalas. My last blog post tells the story of how Gail Haverdill sent this beautiful book of 18 Mini Mandalas a few days after the end of 100 Days for Mandalas. Here are the other mandalas in this lovely book.
100 Days for Mandalas lives on.
On the last day of 100 Days for Mandalas (Sept. 8th), an email came from Gail Haverdill in Ohio telling me she sent a mandala book inspired by 100 Days for Mandalas. It was coming via snail mail.
When the lovely package arrived, I was amazed [...]
