Description:

For 2013, I am hosting a mandala series, one a month for the year. Join in on all or one: it's up to you. I want to thank EVERY ONE OF YOU who have participated in this swap series. I didn't intend to continue in 2013, but you have all made this so much fun, and have challenged my own creativity, I feel I've grown. I hope you all feel the same way. :) and <3

A mandala is: an integrated structure organized around a unifying center. ~ Longchenpa

The quote comes from this site.

In order to possibly bind the mandalas into a year-book, please make the format 7" X 6" sturdy paper. Make the mandala on the rightmost 6" X 6" area, leaving the leftmost inch as the area to bind it into a book. Please use sturdy, stiff, at least 65# paper (at least cardstock weight). If you use lighter paper, please mount it to stiffer paper. You may draw, paint, collage, zentangle your mandala.

I've had mandalas sent to me in incorrect format -- on paper too light-weight, and with no space allowed for the leftmost inch, to bind into a book. I've not rated these down... so far. PLEASE remember to use the right format. You risk a 3 if your partner is strict.

Those of you who can, please post your mandalas in the Flickr group -- the link is above on swap homepage.

Please know that at any time, if I'm blunt and outspoken, that I don't intend to hurt. I am often gauche, sorry, I have tried my whole life for tact, and often fail. Social cues just go over my head, so please try to understand.

I'll check profiles and reserve the right to ban at my discretion.

I will angel -- IF I CAN --but I hope it will not be necessary. I had to put 'if I can' in here, because I've had flakers, one in March and one in April, and I am very busy. So I will try, but from now on can't guarantee, depending on my life at the time. :(

Here are two links to tutorials to learn to make mandalas:

A very interesting method is here
