I have a very big milestone happening in April – I’m celebrating ten years of blogging! To help me celebrate, I’m inviting you to create a “Celebrating 10 Mandala.” For this mandala, incorporate an element of ten. You may divide the circle into ten sections, use ten colors, ten shapes, ten patterns…you get the idea!
To get this challenge started, several mandala artists sent in their submissions early so I could include them in the video above. As each mandala arrived in my inbox, it felt like a gift, especially with the notes that they included.
Thank you all for celebrating with me!
My plan is to relaunch my True North Arts website in April. Stay tuned!
~ Kathryn Costa
