Here is what Kristin says about her mandala making:

“I have been on a journey to learn a new painting technique to relieve the stress brought on through a medical crisis with my husband’s cancer. A camping trip resulted in a fine collection of smooth flat, round stones. They were the inspiration for learning to create dot mandala designs on rocks, and then late on canvas panels. I began making tutorials to share this adventure with others, so they could learn from my mistakes as well as my successes. My hopes that others will be encouraged to try something new, and creat beautiful lasting pieces of art that will bring them joy.

Here are some suggestions that they have about coloring: “Coloring allows to unlock your creative potential. Perhaps more important, it helps relieve tension and anxiety. It unlocks memories of childhood and simpler times. As psychologist Antoni Martínez explains: “I recommend it as a relaxation technique. We can use it to enter a more creative, freer state. I recommend it in a quiet environment, even with chill music. Let the color and the lines flow.””

Here are a few examples”
