This is my Mandala for Jean's first monthly challenge. The challenge was to make a mandala with seven layers - no other rules.
Mandalas can mean many things to many people, but my understanding of them is that they represent life & those aspects of life that are important to us, so they are always very personal. I knew mine would have to be based on nature & I wanted to use words. I decided from the start to use a cd as the base, so this dictated the scale of my project.
I used papers from the Shabby Princess Vintage Florals range & adapted templates from Inspire me.
