Watercolor Mixed Media Mandala


 Watercolor Mixed Media Mandala 
Created by Sophia Vida

I was inspired by my love for flowers to try something new. I created this mandala on an 8″ x 8″ watercolor block. I didn’t know where to start so I looked online and found many beautiful mandala designs. I purchased a few books too. The fear of the blank page was holding me back.  Finally I found the courage to pick up my compass and draw a few circles.

Little by little, it all started to come together. I was amazed at how the ideas for the next step just seemed to flow from my mind to the paper once I allowed the creative process to do its magic. It was quite fun to just let go and watch it unfold. Once I was happy with my sketch, I used watercolor crayons to paint the mandala. I added shading with colored pencils and highlights with a white pen. Last step was to outline the design with  a Micron 03 pen. I have another one that I’m working on and will share it with you as soon as it’s done.
