In the beginning I just saw a mandala. I've been on a mandala kick and just drawing pretty much the same one in various shapes. I used my watercolor crayons and drew the mandala. I filled it in with the crayons and watercolor pencils as well. I then added water and blended the colors. I used my fabric spray ink in green to add some spritzes to the outer edges of the mandala.
