When was the last time you tried something new?

June 26, 2015



Novelty is always fun! This month I've tried some new things. Mandalas, Zentangle, and pattern design in Photoshop (I didn't know you could do this in Photoshop!).

My first attempt at a mandala (above) I did freehand. I hate using tools when I'm drawing. It really takes the fun out of art for me. There are cons though, like my circles aren't round and my symmetry is off, but it adds a unique charm. Anyways, I scanned my mandala and worked some magic in Photoshop creating repeating patterns (below). I found a couple tutorials online, which made it very easy.

Pattern design is kinda addicting. I want to learn more tips and tricks and see where I can take this. I actually have a list of new things I want to try.

When was the last time you tried something new? What was it? Share in the comments something new you'd like to try.
