Inside: Free mandala template
Hello! Today I have a mandala colouring page for you.

I was inspired to make it because this week in my watercolour class we painted mandalas.
We started out by making an 8 part circular grid, laying a blank piece of paper on top of it, then drawing our repeating shapes using the grid underneath as a guide.
When that was finished we put our newly drawn mandala and watercolour paper on a lightbox and then traced the design onto the watercolour paper.
The next step was to trace over our pencil lines with a micron pen and then erase all the pencil lines.
It was a bit of a process but VERY relaxing.
Afterwards we were told to think of the mood we wanted to express and then choose the appropriate colours. I decided to go for a more serene look so I chose blue, magenta and shades of purple. We were instructed to paint each section fading from darker to light so that there’d be a feeling of movement.
Here’s the result:
Thanks for stopping by and happy colouring and painting!
