Life Documented - Week 12 - Cascade of mandalas

Hi guys!! I'm very happy because this week I was the guest for creating the prompt for Life Documented. 
Since the theme of the month is bloom and as I love to draw mandalas I dicides to suggest to play with mandalas this week. 
Prompt: doodle and use bloom Mandalas
Technique:  play with washes and drips of watercolors
Quote: "If we remain afraid and closed off we never know what it feels like to bloom" by Lori Schaefer

All the tutorials for the week were publish on Saturday on the Life Documented blog. But for those of you that aren't in Life Documented I would love to share with you too. I loved to do this spread. 

Today I will share my art journal page with a cascade of mandalas, and tomorrow I will share little art cards.

This is my interpretation for this week prompt and techniques. Hope you enjoy. 

Well, what i made first was to play with washes of watercolor and draw the mandalas. This is the center of my work this week, and I  used the mandalas that I draw in the three pieces that I  created

1. In sheets of a chemistry book I add washes  and drips of watercolor

2. I draw/doodle mandalas
This is only an example of my process to do my mandalas. I like imperfections, so i don't use a compass most of the time, I just draw. Do several of them, play and have fun. I only use a micron pen to draw. 

3. Cut all the mandalas and cut them in half's

For my journal page I saved two half's of mandalas for the card and the tag and use all the rest for this page. 

1. I add swipes of color to my page
2. I collage the mandalas, like a bouquet
3. I doodle some feathers

4. I add some black paint to add contrast

5. Then with acrylic paint I add more contrast color to the mandalas.

6. In the end I add lots of marks.
