Celtic Knot Mandalas

I’ve been having so much fun drawing mandalas that I would like to increase my skills. (After all, they’ve been little more than doodles those for – believe it or not!) I wasn’t quite sure how to do this, and then it hit me! What if I could make a Celtic knot mandala?!?

This is not exactly a typical way to make one. Mostly because a piece is usually one or the other. I’m not sure if I’ve seen a piece that is both!

After two attempts, I believe that I’ve made enough progress that I can help someone else. My first attempt is here:

You can see, it’s a little better. I think these are just warmups, so I hope you stay tuned! 😎
