This is our group mandla, made with all manner of things, fresh flowers, sand, shells, pebbles, lentils. We had no plan, we just started and went from there. It was great fun.
I'm now tackling another mandala, well two to be exact. I am still at the thinking stage, which is code for - I'm stuck! I'm also trying Modroc, one of our tutors brought some in last week, it is a plaster bandage, but great for modelling and for mixed media work. I got some today from Hobbycraft, not Modroc, but their own make, and for a £1, yes it takes longer to dry, do I care? I've already experimented with it. and can see me having lots of fun!
I did keep busy yesterday, I didn't want to sit in the flat and brood all day. I even managed to get some clothes, a miracle, I finally found some linen trousers that I liked and which are really comfortable. I also got a camera, because I thought my old one was lost. The new one has a more powerful zoom and more pixels so I may just keep it. It's the same make, a Lumix, which I think are the best cameras around. It also has the same layout, so no difficulties in using it. The plan for tomorrow is to tackle the mandala! I need to be adventurous, I'm being far too safe at the moment, time to start thinking outside of the box.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend, lets hope the nice weather continues.
