Mandala Night Sky

Thought I would try constellation night sky this time using the dots.

Used this photo as my inspiration.

Hard to capture all the dots on this rock, but I used about 8 different colors of blue!  In person you can see all the variations of blue.   Used 2-3 coats on some dots so it's very bumpy and gives it depth when looking at in person.  Not much blank space on the rock, just didn't photograph well.

This one only used about 4 colors blue.

Mandala Rocks

Wanted to try my hand at doing a mandala rock.  Not too shabby  for my first try.  Not exactly as easy as they look.  So many pretty images out there on the internet for inspiration though.
My favorite mandala artist by far is Elspeth McLean.  Her rocks are absolutely stunning.
