This mandala has been done on vellum. I love the feel of markers gliding on vellum. So smooth! Vellum can be a bit tricky to adhere to a base. The glue can show through. I have been thinking that I might stitch it to a base. I haven't decided on a base as yet. I like the idea of a journal but stitching into a journal might not be fun. I will have to ponder this further.
