I was also playing with some of my non-successful mandalas. I had cut this one up as in the uncut version, those purple sections were on the outside and there was a nondescript section in the middle which was downright boring. I liked this iteration better but thought I could improve it even more so again made diagonal cuts.
This is the final Hidden Well piece with the borders not attached yet. I will use the dark blue as the binding as well.
I am working on another one now that doesn't have as many different fabrics in it.
