Photo Mandalas

I love mandalas.  And I love photography.  Therefore, creating beautiful mandalas from photographs is something that I really enjoy.  I love how combining photographs can create something completely different from the original.  Basically, I created several templates using Illustrator to combine my photographs into a mandala.

I discovered this technique using photographs from my VanderVeer Gardens photography session earlier in the spring of 2017.  First, I attempted this technique in order to create kaleidoscope-like patterns for my Society 6 store.  Since then I have expanded on this style to create lovely photo mandalas.

Winter Photo Mandalas

Consequently, I created several new winter photo mandalas in celebration of the beauty of winter.  These winter photo mandalas use photographs of icicles, ice sculptures, winter icons, and other elements found within my nature photography.  I placed these photos into the various photo mandala templates to create these new digital artworks.

Photo Mandala – Ice Snowman

Reminisce about childhood and building snowmen on those fun winter days with this photo mandala.  Ice Snowman uses a photograph of an ice sculpture.  I love how this photo mandala forms into a snowflake design.  Yet, it still retains the details of the ice sculpture. In addition to the art print that is available in the Adria Black store, I also have this mandala available on a number of home decor products through Society 6.
