Mandalas

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a trial run of an art lesson that I plan to teach later on this week with my class. I bought a Ken Oliver mandala stamp and used basic watercolour paints to watercolour it. I am thrilled with how it turned out.

I used versamark ink to stamp the mandala image onto watercolour paper and then I heat embossed Hero Arts black embossing powder. I used a watercolouring technique that Jennifer McGuire shared a while ago where you use water and then apply the watercolour to the water and let it mix together. Initially I used white, but it was too hard to see the image so I restamped the image and decided that black was better for the students.

As I had a white mandala spare, I decided that I could still use it so I decided that I would use my distress inks and ink the background. I love the way this one turned out as well. Both mandalas will be going to the classroom!

I used three distress inks....tumbled glass, cracked pistachio and lucky clover. To go around the edges I used vintage photo. Thrilled at how versatile this stamp is.

Hope you all have a wonderful week. I have a lot of stamping and heat embossing to do!

Thanks for stopping by!
