It is the first one in a little while so I am very pleased that it has finally happened. It was definitely helped by getting my new craft room quite a bit more organised & the need to make a sample for a project for my clubs.
The theme - is Zentangles.
I have been interested in them for a while & now have finally given myself the time to sit down & play. At the weekend I played with a royalty free image that I had found on the Internet. Here it is;
& here it is zentangled;
What is Zentangle?
Well - the short definition is - "an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns". Another definition - doodling!
Now for my card;
I used the 2 stamps you see in front of the easel - they were from a set I bought from CaroLines - I stamped them in black ink on cream card. They were then decorated with Zentangle style patterns using a fine black pen. Afterwards I cut each one out & placed them in the floral design onto cream card, then cut around the shape leaving a small border. Then I mounted it onto a square of black card, rounded the corners then placed on a square cream scalloped-edge card. The following photos are close ups of the sections & the whole image.
The close ups do show that my filling in with the pen needs some more practise & I think I will have to purchase the better pens - but I am generally pleased with the result & really look forward to dabbling some more with this.
Thank you for dropping into my little blog - I hope you enjoyed your visit - please come back again soon.
