Meanwhile, I wanted to make a gift for someone that loves mandalas. I decided to go against my own inclinations and do up a book of them for her. As you might expect, me being me, my mandalas sort of aren't mandalas. so I'm calling them 'Sortalas'.
I created three small booklets, using a faux leather technique for the covers.
Then I sewed the three booklets together.
I used a plethora of techniques and mediums, heavy on the watercolor, for my Sortalas. I didn't keep track of what I was doing though, so no tutorials this time round.
Instead of showing you all of the Sortalas at once, I'm going to show you a booklet at a time, stretching it out over the next three days. The better to see you wi....uh...I mean the better for you to see them.
Tune in tomorrow for set two!
