It’s an ink over collage mandala Monday featuring all my favorite Wendy Vecchi Archival Inks… with photos to show you all the steps!
Step one: Make a random collage of vintage text paper, keeping the paper patinas fairly light and consistent.
Step two: Scribe a circle at the center of your collage and fill it with the ink of your choice; in this case Wendy Vecchi Orange Blossom Archival from Ranger.
Step three: Add petals, circles, hearts and other shapes in rings, working outward, using the Ranger Archival inks of your choice.
Step four: Use a fine tipped black pen to outline the basic shapes. Use Ranger Detail Applicators to fill in any blank spots with ink.
Step five: Add additional line details and, if desired, add some additional color contrast or shading with markers. And maybe a little white with a Posca pen...?
Step six: Trim the completed mandala into four equal pieces. Mat the four quarters on a coordinating color of cardstock and adhere to four A6 white cards. Stitch around the edges of the Mandala panels if desired.
