Rocks In My Head?

I have rocks in my head, or at least on my mind. My sister became very interested in rock mandala painting and so I decided to join her, as I love all types of crafts.
First we had to go to the beach where there are tons of ocean tumbled rocks. They are mostly ver smooth and come in all sizes. Interestingly enough, there are more rocks than seashells on this beach.
                                    See what I mean?
I picked up a bunch of long-ish rocks and painted them to look like cactus.  Then, you spray them with a clear coat to protect the paint and they are outside in the garden now.
This is my Cheshire cat. I took this before I used my black Micron pent to give his big grin its teeth.
These are just a few of the very early attempts my sister made in mandala painting. Now that she has been at it for 5 weeks, she is getting very good. If you want to see what some look like, go to You tube. There are lots on there and yo can see how it's done.
These are some of my rocks before painting. Many times I paint them black first. It makes a nice "canvas" to apply color to.
Here a re a few I have done. I like to paint "things" on my rocks. I then paint positive words on the back and we put them in a small basket out fron for anyone passing by to take if they want to.
These are my latest ones. I am always looking for ideas of what to paint, and I couldn't get the gingham out of my mind until I painted it. The other two small mandalas were fun to paint too. My sister's are bigger and much more intricate. So, that's what I am up to over here.
I am still working on getting my crafts together to sell probably here on the blog. Lots to do to make it happen. I am still investigating all of it. Stay well, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. These are a lot of fun. Last year we started to see these popping up in places for children to find in parks and different walks. I am sure the same thing has happened over there, too.
