Pen and Paper....Mandala Design

Hi Dear Friends

Pen and Paper....Mandala Design, 6'x8' 


Pen and Paper....Mandala Design, 6'x8' 
I enjoy Mandala drawings and it was such a pleasure to make this card for the challenge set by Indira for her mega-celebration. I have used a black Uni-ball gel pen to draw the design on thick card stock and used Sakura glaze pens to fill color. The glaze pens have given a wonderful embossed look and texture to the design !! This is a big card, 6x8 inches and I kept working on it while teaching my younger son for his exams.By the way, here it is on my bookshelf and you can see two of the books written by me in the left most corner and one on the right most corner.

some work in process pics....

Hope you can see the embossed effect of the glaze pens here........

at some places I have given multiple layers of glaze inks to enhance the embossed effect.....some highlighting with a white Uni-ball pen.....

The 18x14 cm panel is mounted with foam tape on a cream cardstock base. The sentiment inside is computer generated. I worked for about 90 mins every day for three days and totally enjoyed it, thank you Indira, it really was lots of fun !! The colors somehow remind me of the vibrant Patachitra paintings of Orissa !! Hope you all like this...I apologise for the bad pics, all clicked using my phone and on cold winter nights !! If you want you can see some of my earlier Mandala paintings here and here.
