Special Invitation to Awaken Your Wildheart

Meet me at the Wildheart Entrepreneur Summit Dear Mandala Family, Many of you have been following my creative journey for many years. I started with a blog eight years ago and today I’m a published author and host of the 100 Mandalas Community. Do you have a wild, creative dream that is waiting deep within your heart?

Coloring Contest | Mandalafest 2016

When I designed the logo for Mandalafest 2016, I intentionally kept the shapes large to give you some creative latitude for the coloring contest. To inspire you to think outside of the “circle,” I embellished and colored the Mandalafest 2016 coloring page. Let’s start by looking at the coloring page before I embellished it. I kept seeing angel wings in this design. Do you see them? What else do you see within this mandala? As you can see, I filled in the shapes with various repeating lines. I started with the “wings” and then worked my way around and around the circle focusing on a different shape at a time. Would you like a closer look? Ahhhh I thought so. Now I could stop here, but I love color too much. Add to that this is a coloring contest. I scanned my coloring page with all of the new details and printed up a copy. I feel more relaxed knowing that I can always print another page if I feel like I wrecked the mandala. …

Note: Members in the Sharing Circle will explore this series through written posts.
