Me + 3 hours in an airplane = need for distraction * 7 mandalas
I brought along a mini-mandala kit for our flight to and from Seattle last weekend. I used one of the many cosmetic bags I've received as a "free gift with purchase" and filled it with a small notebook, mini-colored pencils, a #2 pencil, a circle template, and a piece of heavy cardstock cut down to size to use as a straight-edge ruler. Oh - and a pencil sharpener.
Here's a link to my original tutorial showing how I draw my mandalas.
Here's a link to an article about the relaxing benefits of coloring mandalas.
And a link for my local friends to sign up for my mandala workshop coming up in May.
