Barrel Cactus Mandala on Blue Thorn Pattern


We have used this mandala before, but it is nice to be able to put it on this new background.

Blue Barrel Cactus Pattern as Background


This is the same pattern turned blue which will work better for our mandala.

Natural Barrel Cactus Patttern for Background


This pattern is made from a segment of a photo of a barrel cactus showing the thorns.
I use this pattern as well as its blue version on Emerging Pattern Ties and Keds Shoes on Zazzle.

Yucca Mandala 1 on Green


Or would you rather see it on the green background?

Yucca Mandala 1 on Blue


How about superimposing a mandala on our blue background?

Yucca Background Pattern in Blue


I can change any of these patterns to any color you like, and darken or lighten them as needed.

Yucca Background Pattern 2


Here is a variation on the previous pattern. Many variations are possible.

Yucca Background Pattern 1


I made this pattern from a photo of yucca fronds to act as a background for my mandala. People have liked it so much that I have looked for another way to use it, so I have used it as a pattern for a necktie. That in turn, inspired me to use other patterns for ties. Then I started using these patterns on Keds Shoes on Zazzle.
