Black Dog Decals says:

I’ve completed the mandala drawing, now I’m trying to expand and merge everything into one vector object. Is there a quick and easy step for this? When I currently expand the mandala, the masking gets messed up and things that were masked before, now show up. Maybe there’s a tutorial for completing the design?
P.S. Great tutorial, I’ve found it very helpful!!
