“Little Bitties” is a collection of designs that I have painted on 1.5” round, wood keychains. I have found these little ones challenging and completely addicting!
I’ve written these patterns a little differently than my previous ones. In place of row by row photos and descriptions, each “Little Bitty” will have one photo and condensed instructions. The reason for this is that, before you even get to the 9 designs, I will first walk you through, in detail, how to do each element that you will find in this bundle. My recommendation is to read through those instructions before starting, and refer back to them as often as you need to as you paint your way through these dot mandalas!
The keychains I painted on are approximately 1.5” in diameter and ¼” thick. They are a plain wood colour that I prepped with 2 coats of black gesso as a base coat. Any black paint will work as well!
These designs can work well on a surface of any size or material. If the surface that you’re painting on is a different size from mine, you may wish to change the tool sizes used in each design.
This is a digital download. After purchase, you will receive an email containing an attachment. That attachment contains the link to access and download the pattern.
Use this pattern to make beautiful things for yourself, to give as gifts, or even on items you wish to sell. Fill your boots! On a totally selfish side, I’d love it if you would tag me (@mandalaloveaffair on all platforms).

In this 18 page PDF, I will walk you through basic dot mandala pattern elements, prepping your paints and painting surface, drawing your guidelines, each step of these designs, fixes & touch ups, and finishing/sealing your masterpiece. I hope the tips and tricks I share along the way, coupled with the colour photos of each step, guide you through creating this mandala as joyfully as possible!
