From a blog I follow, Angry Chicken, I was lead to another blog, Honestly WTF. That is where I was introduced to the Sticker Mandala and the awesomely talented Lauren Venell.
After reading the tutorial on HonestlyWTF, I decided to have a go at the project. I picked up some Mrs Grossman's stickers from Boswell's as well as a sheet of cold pressed paper (Hobby Lobby). I chose that paper because it claimed to handle erasing and was only $2. Next time I will go with a more substantial paper. My second lesson learned was to draw the registration lines very lightly, and erase as much as I can before placing lighter colored stickers. Lastly, I learned to lightly place the stickers in case I need to reposition them.
Below are my results. I think I'm hooked and will do this again. I love how from far away the image resembles a flower, but when you get close you see all of the funny details.
