African beach pebbles and Indian ink

 
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!

  5. Giuli, you are so talented! I love the painting on the pebbles. I could never paint like that! ;) (my hands are too shaky lol!).
    When I travelled near the seaside, I kept two large stones. One day I will draw on them - such a great idea! (however, I still would prefer your pebbles! ;)

    It was so great to do and i had so much fun.
    I realy love Italy.
    Please give everybody much greetings from me.
    And maybe we can give classes together in a weekend after the summer vacations like a little Patchpoint event hahaha.
