Here's a fun idea for anyone who'd like to start making mandalas, but doesn't want to draw: a mandala made with beautiful, tiny, round Lucille stickers, and a few circle stamps from Everyday Explorers Co; plus some other cool new goodies from The Ink Pad.
That little square box has 100 (!) 3/4" circle stickers for just $4.95! There are twenty different designs, most of which have metallic gold highlights. In addition to the Lucille stickers, there's also an Aurelia Chichi assortment. I used my MISTI to position and stamp the double-ringed circle from Everyday Explorers Co School Days stamp set eight times, in a neat ring, on white cardstock using Jane Davenport's lovely, sparkly, Gold Bullion Squid Ink. I placed one Lucille sticker in the center of each, then cut out the whole ring. Using that segment to guide my placement, I stamped another (wider) ring of eight circles on a piece of watercolor paper blended with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink. I outlined around that set of stickers with the finer tip of a bright yellow Zig Dot Marker, and added some large dots around the edges. I used a golden Tinou Glitter Marker (these are the sparkliest pens EVERRRR and a very good value!) to make additional, smaller, sparkly dots. Finally I added a few tiny Djeco Decal rub-on flowers on both "rings" of my mandala.
To assemble, I matted a tiny swan sticker on several circles cut with nested circle dies. I mounted it (on foam tape for a bit of dimension) at the center of the top ring of the mandala, and mounted the top ring above the bottom ring the same way. Then I attached the whole panel to a white 5" square card.
The Ink Pad's Online Store has SO MANY beautiful stickers, whether you make mandalas or cards or mail art or just like to hoard beautiful stickers... I think I can guarantee you'll find some that you love! ♥
