Mandala is a concentric diagram having spiritual and ritual significance.
In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the Universe from the human perspective. [quote from wikipedia.org]

I like it. It’s different and happy. A mandala is a symbol representing an effort to reunite the self, I read in my favorite book Artists’ Journals. I don’t know how much luck I had with that, but here it is, my first mandala try.
It’s inspired by the mandala post for March at the Soul Journal blog. Soul Journal has lots of great articles for Art Journaling folks. I really enjoyed both the mandala post and some earlier ones, like creating a vision board (on a journal page) and how to identify and create your own power images! So go check out Soul Journal.
