May Mandala Challenge

I’m often asked where I get all of my ideas. For this month’s challenge, I thought I would show you how I take inspiration and turn it into my own unique mandala art. The theme this month is Mexican Inspired Mandalas.

Here is a look at my design notes inspired by pieces of Mexican folk art.

Here you can see how I applied the design elements to a final mandala design.

Watch the quick 4 minute video to get the contest details and to see the fabulous prizes donated by our mandala sister, Mary-Anne Betrand Schoenike.

I can’t wait to see the colors, shapes, and patterns that will show up in your Mexican inspired mandala art this month!
