Mandalas!

I have no idea why I suddenly decided I wanted to make these designs. I found a website that has mandala software, and another online mandala generator. It's in Hungarian, but it has only a few controls and I figured it out. Here is a leafy mandala I made.



Online mandala generator.
Below is a little diagram of the screen with my translations added.



1. Erase
2. Clear
3. Grid thingy hide/show
4. Choose how many segments for your mandala
5. Vary line thickness.

The color picker is pretty basic and simple. It takes just a few minutes playing with it to get the idea. One thing I was not able to figure out was how to save my finished mandala, so I just made a screen shot and edited it in Photoshop.

I'm going to make some more. If anyone reading this makes a mandala, please let me see it! And have fun!

*Update: Fellow blogger and nature lover Kat has posted a mandala that she created to honor the memory of the whooping cranes that died in the Florida storm a few days ago.

Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
