Interlocking Mandalas


Zentangle 5

This was WAY more difficult that I thought it would be when I started it. In my mind it was going to be beautiful and simple and as it progressed I had to figure out what line was supposed to be on which level. I like the way it turned out, but I know that I could do a better job. I know that this is something that I need to work on more and learn more about. Any tips or tricks you have would be amazing.

Tell me if you have any tips on interlocking mandalas or if you have ever attempted this on your own and what were the results. Link your ideas in the comments below.

Beautifully Dangerous


While creating this piece all I could think about was all the movies I have seen where the flowers could be the most dangerous part of a new planet. So, within my science fiction mind, I decided to create something from an unknown planet within my thoughts. What you do you think about it?

Can you see this in the movies or in your nightmares? Tell me about anything science fiction you have ever created and link it in the comments.

Beautiful Garden

Filling a full page of colorful flowers, testing out each petal was so much fun. I used the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners for this piece. Finishing the piece with the green swirls in the back brought everything to life. Everything about this tested my ability to create something out of nothing.

My challenge to you is to think outside your box. As you can tell, I worked across two pages on this and didn’t finish it off with a straight line. So, try something new. Think outside the box and create something without straight lines boxing it in. Link your art in the link below so I can take a look at what you can create!

Dream catcher


I have drawn a few feathers and a few dream catcher rings, but I haven’t ever drawn from start to finish a dream catcher. That is so weird to me. To show you what I am talking about, Here is the dream catching ring I was talking about.

I have such an infatuation with dream catchers. I wish I were better at drawing them exactly. I did try a few attempts in my bullet journal to draw a full dream catcher but its so basic, I was ashamed of it. It was all different sizes and not symmetrical at all. I hope to try a little more in the future and hopefully I can come up with something truly considered a masterpiece. This was drawn with Staedtler Triplus Fineliners.

My daughter for the longest time has believed that her dream catcher helps keep her dreams full of light. She doesn’t like bad dreams and has always been the type to sleep walk and sleep talk. Several times in her life I have had to figure out her dream and calm her down without waking her.  I believe that if you believe in something enough, it will work for you. Because I don’t know 100% either way, I allow her to believe in positivism and safety, which helps her sleep better.

Have you ever tried to draw a dream catcher? Do you believe in the power of a dream catcher? I welcome all tips on creating a better one in the future.

Lifeblood


lifeblood

The story behind this drawing is that just as every snowflake is different, I have to believe that every rain drop is too. Each rain drop plays an important role in the survival of our planet. Without water, we would all surely perish.

Although I am not an extremist in any way, I do believe that if everyone cleaned up after themselves and worked on their own footprint, we would be way better off.
