Progressive drawing of a mandala

Mandalas are amazing design elements in henna.  They represent so much positive energy, balance, centrality and connection.  This week, we will share with you a quick mandala progression.  This progressive drawing is pretty self explanatory as it's a photo tutorial. 

Mandalas are so relaxing to draw and to do in henna.  A mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.
