100 Mandalas, Altered books, collage, community mandala, Gessobord, gratitude, paper collage, torus mandala
I’m coordinating a community mandala project at my new church this Sunday and I’m a little nervous. The mandala will be 36″ x 36″ and I have never made one this big. Here is the prototype.
You can see my boys and my cats peeking out of it. My husband is implied with so many of the meaningful papers. A lot more people and ideas that are important to me are incorporated into this mandala of me. It includes fabric and lots of ephemera. This is my first one on Ampersand Gessobord and I love it! The Gessobord is covered with pages from my Pilgrim’s Progress from 1877. My mother-in-law gave it to me and I’m not sure she believed me when I said it is one of my favorite gifts of all time! This is mandala #32 of 100.
I like the patchwork quilt feel in this piece.

Good luck. And I am sure the project will go well. The prototype is beautiful and meaningful.
