21 artists from around the world submitted mandalas for this Community Mandala project. It is a count down calendar to the Solstice. Each day starting on December 1st and finishing on December 21st a different mandala is featured.
When I was a child I loved my Advent Calendars that counted down to Christmas. Each day I would eagerly await to see what the next picture would be. There were some years when my brother and I would get those cardboard calendars with the little chocolates behind each window. My brother would invariably gobble up all of his chocolates by day three while I was patient and would enjoy the little treat each day. Inspired by this fun memory, I designed a countdown calendar only in this case we are counting down 21 days to the Solstice.
This mandala project is about creating something beautiful as a community that will light up and inspire all who see it. As we create mandalas during this Solstice season, may we recognize the light within ourselves and the light in each other.
As you can see some assembly is required. I’ve designed the numbers and mandala tags for you to print. All you’ll need is some paper, scissors, a glue stick and ribbon. I used three different scrapbook papers for the tags, white paper for the numbers and the title graphic and two pieces of 12×12 scrapbook paper for the background.
Here is a peak at day 8, Patricia Mosca’s mandala. Isn’t it beautiful?
I went with a silver and white theme. You can choose ANY color you like for your calendar. I designed the mandala for the title so you can color it in to match the colors you use in your calendar.
