My First Mandala

This is my first mandala.  I started with an ad in a magazine - a picture of fruit - for an inspiration, used pens first, then scanned and then used Photoshop to brush in details and add words and background swirls. I made 2.5x3.5 sized ATCs of these to send in to a swap hosted by Megan Warren in Australia, one of my soul sisters on my Soul Journaling  group.    I love to look at the mandalas of Patricia Mosca at From the Inside Out, whose work inspires me in this area.  It took me a while to get the hang of mandalas because they are so different from what I'm used to doing, so I'm extra proud of this.
