Last summer a lovely journal arrived in my mailbox. It was a journal traveling from friend to friend, artist to artist, as part of Strathmore’s “Pass the Journal” project. Each person had a week or two with the journal and then pass it along.
I pulled out my acrylic paints and colored the background before drawing my “mandalas.”
On one side I drew a snake and had a blast filling it in with various shapes and patterns.
On the facing page I drew a hamsa symbol with the mandala in the center.
Strathmore sent out 12 journals. Check out where they traveled and get inspired by all of the incredible art styles. You may find a color scheme or decorative element to add to your mandalas this week.
You’ll find me in journal #3 called, “Pulp.” Zoom in and out of the map and click on each marker to view the various pages and to learn a bit about each artist.
