I've decided it is too difficult to make centers for my circle borders so I'm going to leave them as they are for now. It is simpler to integrate the center into the whole drawing from the start. So here is my first one. It has a thistle motif, although the leaves seem to have morphed into something else. As with my kirigami mandalas, it is sometimes difficult to tell which angle looks the best. I decided to place this one with the thistle on top but it also looks good with the wreath or leaves at the top.
Note: This and the next batch of mandalas will either become part of a new coloring journal and/or a new collection of coloring pages. This will happen later in July. Stay tuned!
