Mandala Art From Tree Bark

I love the idea of creating one thing out of another. I created two different Mandalas in Photoshop from the same simple image of tree bark that I shot while visiting family in Virginia. I took the picture because I was intrigued by the texture. And every part of the design is made up of a piece of this picture.
<br />

The first image (left)is entitled “Valka Prathamaja”. In Sanskrit, “valka” is tree bark, and “prathamaja” is “first born.”

The second image (below) is entitled “Valka Dvitiiya” — “valka” again being tree bark, and “dvitiiya” being “second after the first”.

<br /> The seed idea for creating mandalas this way came from Earth Mandalas, and I have elaborated on the ideas with layers and filters, etc. Follow that link for a great tutorial and templates for creating your own mandalas this way.

Posters and other products made from these images are available at our Zazzle Store, just click on the images.

The fun part? Showing you the image these were created from:
