A new jump in my time machine and into my pictures folder of March I found the image above.
This is a pebbles set decorated with a wooden stylus and Indian ink. On the back I applied a little magnet, transforming the simple pebbles in refrigerator magnets. The pebbles come from Zanzibar, collected during a walk on the beach on a rainy day. Work completed in time for a wedding in April.
For this work I have been inspired by the mandala, geometric patterns that represents the cosmos and have a spiritual significance in Buddhism and Hindu religion. My mandalas has nothing of geometric but just inspired by the floral world.
Drawing on stones using a wooden stylus and Indian ink was really fun. I worked on this creation and my last craft project using the same raw materials, I think I have passed the Reprocessed Pebbles Season...maybe...
I confess you, painting the pebbles, I experienced a new form of meditation. So keep in mind this craft could be a good medicine for body and soul and when we are stressed!
