Mixed Media Blue Mandala Canvas

Hi everyone!!! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Mixed Media Blue Mandala Canvas. :o)

I made this one a while ago (in spring 2017), but I didn't share it anywhere yet because I forgot about it. It was a gift for my cousin for starting her new business (relaxing and massage center). She loved it. :o)

This month I've started making similar one for my friend and realized I never shared this one.

How I made this canvas...

To make the canvas, I used a GORGEOUS Create a Smile 'Mandala' cling stamp and a Devanāgarī Script stamp that I got from my dear friend Neha of Periwinkle Creations. :o)

I worked on a white stretched canvas.

I heat embossed the Mandala in white directly on the canvas. Using a brayer roller, I spread thick layer of acrylic paints (white and light blue) all over the canvas. Using a wet cloth, I removed paints from the Mandala, as it was not visible at all. The area was lightly painted blue, but all Mandala lines were visible.

After drying, I colored the Mandala with colored pencils.

I added more blue acrylic paint on the canvas corner and lightened the area around the Mandala with a white pigment ink pad. I left the canvas drying on air and repeated the process couple times until I was satisfied with the color.

I masked the Mandala with a paper towel and stamped whole background using the Devanāgarī Script stamp and the white pigment ink.

After drying, I mixed a white acrylic paint with a bit of water and splattered the whole background. I removed the mask from the Mandala and left the canvas drying on air for couple of hours.

Lastly, I traced Mandala's lines with a white gel pen and my canvas was finished. :o)
