It snowed today for the first in months. Large fluffy flakes slowly fell from the sky for a couple of hours. They fell slow enough to see their structure. A lot of them reminded me of mandala patters so much I had to post a swap for them. As usual there will be few rules. There are some really awsome photos of real snow flakes on line, do a search for inspiration. The shapes should be crystaline in nature and symmetrical. Use the pattern I provided or use your own.The Mandala should be 5 inches or larger on heavy sketch, drawing paper or card stock. Use colored pencils or permanent inks, neat and clean. Be as precise or as loose as you want with this swap, however it should remind the viewer of a snowflake. Use a ruler and a protractor to make your mandala circle with a bowl and eyeball the segments you will fill with your designs. Folding a piece of paper and cutting into it to make a pattern like we did in grade school works for this as well.
Don't forget your name, contact information and name of the swap on the back. Please include any special meaning your Mandala may have.
recap: This is a swap for one snowflake inspired mandala for one partner. About 5 inches or larger.
