Lily Stars and Mandala
I created a foliage star with the leaves of the lily plants. I desaturated it, and colorized it blue and purple and darkened both versions to use as alternate radial backgrounds for the lily mandala. I stroked the stars with 9 pixels of white to make it pop out from the background. With the flower star. I duplicated a layer and turned it solid white, and rotated it to serve in the outer ring. I felt that the star needed some more bright white. This is a new technique I will use again. I am showing you the stars and then the mandalas with the darkened stars as radial backgrounds. I could do the same with the flower star or any other star I make. With this, I now have all the elements needed to complete the mandala and array.
