#LPAMakingMonday is truly the best way to end the hardest day of the week. We gather our cherished crafting supplies, a delicious beverage of choice, and meet up every Monday night on Instagram Live to unwind through creativity and connection.
On tonight's live (Monday, May 29th, 2023) we're delving into the world of mandala art, a therapeutic craft known to relieve anxiety and stress.
Mandalas, a Sanskrit word meaning "circle," has been utilized across cultures for centuries to express the universe's complexity in a simple, geometric design. Our shared activity will be an exploration of self-expression, balance, and the calming effect that repeating patterns can bring.
Mandala making, is not just an art; it's a soothing journey that calls us to explore our inner universe. Intricate yet accessible, this art form has been celebrated for its calming effects, and can be used as a form of meditation. The practice of creating mandalas engages our minds in a relaxing, rhythmic repetition, offering a respite from daily stresses and anxieties.
And to ensure you're all set for tonight's session, I've prepared a special treat for you. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to grab a FREE printable download. This circle grid for mandala making is designed to act as your guiding canvas during our live session or even when you rewatch the replay. You can take your time, filling in the grid with your unique designs and patterns, creating your very own mandala masterpiece.
Our Making Monday sessions are not just about mandala making, though. We explore a range of crafts, all with the idea of using our beloved crafting and stationery products. Instead of letting these treasures sit and gather dust, we bring them to life in creative, enjoyable ways.
So whether you're a seasoned crafter or a curious beginner, you're invited to join us in turning an ordinary Monday into an extraordinary one. Let's gather our pens, paints, and notebooks, turning each page into a testament of creativity and relaxation. After all, #LPAMakingMonday is about more than just making art; it's about making the most out of every moment, crafting included!
Tonight, we not only craft, but we also build a community, fostering a space where each stroke, each design choice, each completed craftwork is a testament to the connection we share over our mutual love for all things stationery.
With your circle grid printable in hand and your stationery ready, let's meet tonight on Instagram Live, ready to create, unwind, and start the week afresh with a bit of crafted serenity. Happy Making Monday, everyone!
