Element


The Sketchbook Challenge introduces a new monthly theme today..."ELEMENT".  Get all the details here.  I'm so excited about this theme because "element" lends itself to so many wonderful interpretations that fit well with me and my style.  Micro, traces of.., earth, wind, fire & water... to name a few. Although I haven't had a chance to get my teeth stuck into it yet, I did go through some of my mandalas that were produced with the four elements as their inspiration. 

EARTH



 AIR

 



FIRE










WATER


Some of these mandalas were inspired by Susanne Fincher's books which give a wonderful commentary on mandalas and their history, and are filled with templates and coloring pages for you to play with. You can see these mandalas in full, along with HEAPS more here.

Enjoy this months theme for The Sketchbook Challenge, I can't wait to see what everyone produces in the Flickr group.

Thanks for checking in. xx
