This week in art

In my post a couple of weeks ago, my friend Ronit noticed owl-ish faces in one of my mandalas. This week, I played with iOrnament and tried to deliberately include faces. These are my initial simple ones; I'm definitely going to play with this some more.Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala Owl mandala

Here are some new mandalas. These two started as line art in iOrnament, then coloured in Procreate.

And this one is from my colouring book, Geneviève's Mandalas, coloured in Procreate.

As I crocheted the baby blanket and hat last week, I got a renewed interest in crochet. This is my current work in progress. (No, it's not a blanket.)

On another note, I actually made this a couple of weeks ago, but since it's a gift, I couldn't post until today. It's a crocheted baby blanket and loom-knitted hat I made for my friend Lena who is having a baby boy in a few weeks.

This week in art

Here are two free colouring pages from Dover Publications that I coloured in Procreate. One of the things I like to do is add a texture layer, I find that makes the result more interesting.

On another note, here are thumbnails of the mandalas I created in iOrnament in the last six months.
