Colorist App news, and my first dot mandala!

Colorist news!

A new book of ten images designed by me is now available in the Colorist app!  It’s called DoodleWorlds – The Next Frontier!

I had a lot of fun drawing these images, and who doesn’t need a koala planet or an angel pusscat in their life?  Not forgetting all the crazy aliens and critters and other things!

Colorist is an app that allows you to colour templates in like you’re using a pencil or a gel pen. Great fun, easy to use, and you can colour each template again and again.  Oh, and you can add doodles and patterns to the images too!

Dot Mandala

My youtube recommendations today included some videos about how to create ‘dot mandalas’ – the kinds that are seen on stones and also as paintings.  They’re made up of patterns of dots, and I watched a couple by Kristin Uhrig  and Travelling Kindness Rocks and they inspired me to have a go.  This is the result:

It’s not perfect – I found out this is much harder than these two ladies make it appear.  It was, however, a lot of fun to create!

I used my embossing tools dipped in PaperArtsy Fresco Paint and some gold Liquitex paint, both of which were watered down a little, to make the dots.  I did draw some pencil circles on the black card to help keep the design circular; I drew three circles in total!  Then, I just let the design flow without over thinking it.

As I’ve said, it was great fun to do, totally engrossing, and I’m quite pleased with my first attempt.  I’m sure I’ll be doing more of these, on all kinds of scales!
