modular mandala canvases

last summer i designed a mandala that was split into four equal pieces of canvas wrapped board, that could be re-arranged into different configurations. i called it a "modular mandala" and ever since then i've been wanting to make another one... but bigger... so finally i got hold of four 8x8 canvases and went to work. here's the static version, you can see a flipagram on facebook or instagram! ♥

supplies: ranger archival and distress inks applied with a fingertip sponge applicator over a collage of torn vintage paper; shading with gelatos and distress crayons; little bits of liquitex while modelling paste, applied through various stencils, for texture; pen outlines in faber-castell pitt artist pens of various sizes and a bit of posca paint pen


  1. This is a wonderful project, you are extremely talented.

  2. OMG Lauren, this is totally awesome!!! I love that it can be displayed anyway you like, you are so very talented. I am searching for a suitable pun, but nothing is coming to me! Cx

  3. What a fabulous project, it's soft and calming no matter which way you place the parts. I so wish I could have 1/10th of your talent, you are awesome.
