Watercolour mandala - Mandala aquarelle

I love playing with watercolour. Here, I made a circle out of water first, then I added the colours while it was still wet. I love that the colours bleed into one another. I let everything dry for a few hours, then I drew a mandala with a Sharpie on top of it.

J'aime jouer avec l'aquarelle. Ici, j'ai fait un cercle avec de l'eau pour commencer, puis j'ai ajouté les couleurs pendant que c'était encore mouillé. J'aime que les couleurs se fondent les unes dans les autres. J'ai laissé tout ça sécher quelques heures, puis j'ai dessiner un mandala par-dessus avec un Sharpie.

The effect is definitely stained glass window.

This is nice! I love the 'bleeding' at the edges.

Someone showed me the Mooka part on a zentangle. This kind of reminded me of that.

Wow! Absolutely genius! And I agree with Melissa; the stained glass look is perfect!

It's fun to read the order in which people take their steps. I've always hated the bleeding and get frustrated trying to control it. Clearly I just need to learn to love it like Miss Koolaid!! Good idea. Thanks for sharing...
