Mandala and a Template

I love working on mandalas.
And if you have some great templates to work with, 
they are really easy and fun to create.
My friend Genevieve Crabe has a group of templates on her blog that you can download and use -
for FREE!
Here is a link to her blog Tangle Harmony and the templates she has listed.
For this mandala, I used Genevieve's #39 template,
and a piece of paper I had used Dylusions Ink Sprays on.
I transferred the template to my paper, and started filling in the sections.
You will notice in the first inner ring,
I combined the sections she had drawn
and turned that into a ring of All Boxed Up.
Templates are meant to be used as a guide.
Feel free to combine sections or move the lines around.
Mandalas! So much fun!


  1. How do you transfer the template to your paper?

    1. transferring the template is very easy, janet. print out the template in the size you want, turn it over and shade the back side of the template with a pencil. then turn it back over, lay it over your paper you want to transfer it to, and trace over the lines. i use a ballpoint pen. this transfers the design with graphite. :)

  2. I like how you incorporate tangling in your art. Love the background!

    1. thank you so much, i love tangling like this!

    1. your template :) thanks for being so generous and sharing them with us! <3

  4. I like your Flescu (Flux/Fescu) if I'm not mistaken combined with the lines of All Boxed Up - isn't it brilliant the way that Mandalas lend themselves to combining elements so that the outcome is absolutely unique to every individiual?
