This pink mandala I made with my new Inktense pencils.I bought these thanks to Kim Who mentioned them in one of her posts and showed some stunning results, like The Indian Lady bookmark, which she made as a gift for her readers. Of course I couldn't resist using other materials as well, like silver paint, white acrylic and a micron pen; 0,05,which is absolutely fantastic. I'm in Johannesburg again and will change room today. I hope the wireless is better there. Right now I have to stand in the window sill with my laptop.................. Deze roze mandala heb ik gemaakt met mijn nieuwe Inktense potloden. Ik heb ze gekocht n.a.v. de mooie dingen die Kim heeft laten zien op haar blog, zoals de prachtige The Indian Lady boekenlegger. Ik ben weer in Johannesburg en ga zo van kamer ruilen. Ik hoop dat daar de wireless verbinding beter is, want ik sta nu weer voor het raam te internetten........


  1. This one looks quilted! Amazing depth! Do you travel for work or pleasure? You sure get around! I am jealous!!! LOL.

  2. Love these colors Marianne.

    It seems you often have trouble with your internet connection. It must be all that traveling.

  3. Oh Marianne, this is truly lovely. I am glad you like the inktense pencils...they make travel easier, don't you think?

    I love the way the mandala has the concentric circles which draw you into the center of complete balance! It truly draws me in with softness and protection (the sharp lines in the silver really seem very protective).

    Truly, very beautiful!

    Enjoy Johannesburg.


  4. Wow! The pink is so vibrant and I love the pop of purple against it all. I would love more info on the Inktense pencils... I have never heard of them myself.
    Thanks for sharing... and hope the next room is more hi-tech set. =)

    Oh ja... Ik hoorde dat je de 22e een workshop gaat geven?? Leuk!!!! Spannend?? Tineke belde me uit te nodigen voor de 22e....
