  10. Oh my Marianne, you inspire me so much, i can't believe you made this just this morning.
    It's beautiful. And i'm pretty sure Robin said so too. ;)


  11. I'd have to arm wrestle Robin for this - its lovely and gorgeous and beautiful and royal.

  12. The depth of field you created with this color really draws you into the mandala. Beautiful. HCM.

  13. Happy Cactus Monday Marianne!

    Lisa is right, the different gradient of colours setted on the petals do invite us into your beautiful Mandala!

    I definitely have a wonderful blooming moment here.

  14. Sehr huebsch und die Farben sind echt schoen - eigentlich meine Lieblingsfarben mit lila und rosa...ich sollte auch wieder zum Malen anfangen, aber habe momentan zu viel zu haeckeln...aber einen Kaktus habe ich gehaekelt mit rote Blueten drauf.

    Bis bald,
