I am departing today from my usual topics to show you the fun I had noodling around for Rima's Digital Play Challenge #3. We started with this image from wetcanvas and were instructed to have fun. How often do we hear that in our lives anymore?

I see you put a lot of thought and effort onto your mandalas, therefor they turn out well. I have a lot to learn from you and will study them carefully, oh master!
