Mandalas can be quite addictive; these days adult colouring books are everywhere and a lot of them are all full of these beautiful creations.
I found a tutorial that showed how to achieve photographic mandalas a while back and had created the below at that time. It wasn’t until recently that I remembered having done this. The nudge came from the Photoshop Elements & More forum, where digital orbs and twirls are currently a poplar topic, which then reminded me of mandalas. Might be time to delve back into this and create some more.
