Zen Gem Mandela

This is a sample Mandela I made to show the different color gems that can be drawn and added to a Mandela design.  The gems can be different shapes and different colors drawn on tiles of various colors and sizes.  The Mandela is drawn in black pen ink and the gems are colored with prismacolor pencils.  The Zen Gems are all the rage right now with many of the Zentangle artists.
