Another Design Team Friday at JustWordz

Hello and happy Friday, everybody! Friday brings with it another opportunity for the JustWordz design team to inspire you with new projects using the Everyday Sentiments stamp set. I need to remind you too, that if you'd like a chance to join this awesome team, Kim is holding "auditions" for new members right now and there are only a couple of days left to get your application in. All the information can be found on the JustWordz website but you'd better hurry before time runs out!

This week our theme is "Thank You". I have chosen a very pretty image I received from the Crafters'
Digital Art Center as a participant of their Progressive Freebies Challenge. We received 6 new images to play with for this round and this is one of those. It's a lovely mandala. Mandala is the Sanskrit word for circle. You can find another variation of this design that I entered in the CDAC challenge in one of my blog posts from yesterday. It's basically the same except for the coloration of the digi stamp. I enjoyed coloring it so much that I have completed 3 different versions so far. This is he most colorful of the three.

I haven't finished the inside yet so I didn't photograph it. As I stated yesterday, coloring these mandalas is very therapeutic for me. I can completely clear my mind, relax and just let the color flow into the paper.  The only time I have to think at all is when I'm changing colors. This card is 6 inches square but I think I'll try as smaller version that I can use for little thank you cards. There is plenty of information on traditional mandalas on the Internet in case you'd like to learn about their history.
