Mandala Monday ~ Peace

 

 

This one is kinda different from the other mandalas I’ve made (except for the oak leaves around the edge, which are similar to last week’s).  I was in the mood to work in threes for some reason.  It sort of reminds me of a peace sign.  We could all use a bit more peace in this crazy world of ours, don’t you think?

 

Wishing you peace, beauty, and love in the coming week…

Mandala Monday ~ Kaleidoscope

This week’s mandala sort of reminds me of a kaleidoscope.  And that brings to mind the words of a poem I wrote some time ago…

 

Autumn leaves, colors so bright

a feast for the eyes, such a wondrous sight

Shades of crimson, rust, and amber

a brilliant kaleidoscope of nature’s splendor

Except the colors mentioned in that old poem don’t quite match because they don’t include yellow or gold and this autumn ‘kaleidoscope’ has lots of yellow and gold in it.  Oh well.  🙃

 

Here are a couple photos I snapped during this mandala’s progress…

Have I mentioned lately how satisfying, enjoyable, and enriching this practice of creating nature mandalas with autumn leaves is?  Of course I have.  😉

And I don’t know how much longer it’s going to last, as fall is nearly at an end here now.  I’ve tried to preserve some of the leaves I’ve gathered this fall, but I don’t know how well they’ll keep.  But I’m sure I can rely on nature to provide other beauties to create with if this urge to make mandalas continues.

 

Wishing you beauty and creativity in this coming week…
