Zentangle Inspired Art - Mandala

I created this page in a 6.5" x 4.75" journal that has kraft coloured paper. I used metallic gel pens to draw the mandala.

First I traced around an apple corer-slicer with pencil. I saw this idea of using the apple corer-slicer on Margaret Bremner's blog called Enthusiastic Artist posted January 17th, 2011. When you use the apple corer-slicer it divides your circle into sections. Then you draw with your pens to create your designs. I added a flower shaped bead into the middle of the design to finish it off.

Many thanks to Margaret Bremner for the idea of using this kitchen utensil to trace a circle. Margaret is a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher)  and a fellow Canadian from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
