The windmill came into view today when I added metallic paint as a base coat for the mandala.
My progress for today:

11 – full view of today’s progress
Using different color translucent metallic paint, the Windmill Mandala started coming to life today. Adding the white outline really helped make the structure of the design stand out. So now with its base coat set, I can, next time, add some paint and gel pen details with accents and highlights. I may even do some more stamping. 🙂
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
