2024 Challenge - Mandala a Month!
Who doesn't love a good challenge? I've been wanting to do a monthly challenge for a while and my friend Kate Richbourg (of beadshop.com) helped me come up with this idea.
At the end of each month, I challenge you to stamp out a mandala that represents that month. Maybe you have design stamps that depict events or emotions from that month. Maybe you use words or just the first letter of words. Keep notes throughout the month. For instance, I will be doing my January mandala soon and my notes so far are - travel, rain, flower tattoo (that I had done last week), new beginnings. I will incorporate all those thoughts into a mandala.

I will be doing this on a 2" aluminum circle each month. I have packs of 15 2" 14 gauge aluminum circles available in the shop at a deep discount (AT371). This is a few more than 12 incase ya need a few spares 😉. Of course you can use any blank but I thought a 2" circle would be a great canvas for this project.
At the end of the year you will have 12 gorgeous mandalas and we will explore different ways to display them.
We will be sharing our mandalas each month in our Facebook Group. Please join the fun!
