Butterfly Wing Mandala

I’ve had this tutorial bookmarked for quite some time, but never got around to making my own Mandala until last night. My triangle measurements will need some fine-tuning to avoid overlapping pieces, like at the bottom left and a tiny white dot in the centre. But overall I was really impressed by the results of my first try, using one of my favourite photos of the Mourning Cloak Butterfly:


I can already see that this is something that I could spend hours and hours playing with. The possibilities are truly endless. But today is a beautiful Saturday, and I will not allow myself to sit inside on the computer~ have a great weekend!

  1. This is so cool, Caitlin!! How gorgeous. I can see how this could be addictive. btw, there are several different kaleidoscope creation software products that do it automatically if you really want to pursue it. Just google photo kaleidoscope or something similar. Glad you have a beautiful Saturday to enjoy! – g
