Thank you to everyone who participated in our #SakuraMomAndMe Mother's Day giveaway! We hope you all had fun creating art with your kiddos. Stay tuned for more fun events like this where you'll have the chance to win art supplies from Sakura. This mandala was created by giveaway winner @lenasekine and her daughter!
Maya and I were fortunate to win the #SakuraMomandMe giveaway contest put on via Sakura of America's instagram account. The contest was to make a collaborative art with our child as part of their way to celebrate mom's on Mother's Day. Maya and I created and submitted the two mandalas above. The one that was chosen, was created with a black Sakura Pen-Touch. Maya and I took turns building the mandala, then we colored it in with Sakura moonlight and Sakura metallic gellyroll pens.
We were so ecstatic when we found out because we have always used and been a fan of Sakura art products! My father even used Sakura crayons growing up in Japan! We will be receiving $80 worth of art supplies which Maya and I cannot wait to receive! Yay!
About Sakura : Sakura initially started as a crayon company in 1921. Disappointed that traditional crayon colors didn’t mix or overlay well, the innovative founders of Sakura began to experiment with different formulations to create an ideal stick drawing material. By 1924, Sakura invented the first-ever oil pastel that combined oil and pigment and named it Cray-Pas®, a combination of the two words crayon and pastel.
