I participate in Na Omi Judy Shintani's mandala project every year. Starting January 1 we make a mandala a day for the next 12 days. Participants find mandalas in all kinds of ways - photographing round objects, drawing, painting, collaging, printing. I make mine in my tiny art journal at the beginning of each month to inspire or remind. I use various media from drawing, painting, stamping, cutting paper to collage. It's a pleasure to come upon a mandala at the beginning of the month, especially as the year wears on, because I would have forgotten and be reminded of the image + word. I like to come up with the words first, then make mandalas about them. The words are meant to inspire and to trigger an action. This is also a good way to turn art-making into a daily practice right from the beginning of the year.
