Would you not want to untangle your worries, stress and everyday repeticious tasks. Well I just found a way , it is called Zentangle. I am on facebook and sometimes on my feed are these beautiful creatioins and I needed to find out how they were drawn. So I goodled Zentangle and there you have a way to get mesmerized and hypnotised by drawing with a 0.1 fine line pen and 3.5 inch sqaure paper and by using repetitious patterns you create this beautiful work of art. Is so relaxing takes you into another world.
I have read that instead of making the usual card, create a Zentangle and incorporate it into the card.
Well this is what I came up with. Is called a Nymph Flower. Instead of adding in tangles I left it as it is. Nice and simple.
Here is my card. Click picture for detail of the flowers.
I then used my score buddy to make indentend lines and used 0.1 fine line pen to outline the bars and also add a bit of shadow to the lines with a pencil.
I stamped the sentiment imagine (stamplorations - artful flutters) with stayzon (jet black) onto vellum sheet and cut it out and rounded the top corners.
Yes I finally found vellum sheets in Spotlight and I had to get some as everybody is using it for creations on their cards. I found stayzon, distress inks by Ranger are very good and they dry quickly on the vellum. Versafine inks tend to smudge, even drying overnight.
I think I will be able to Zentangle on a vellum sheet, that would be cool. Must try soon.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :-
STAMPlorations - bi-weekly sketch #18
Addicted to CAS - #45 code word : geometric
Addicted to Stamps & More - challenge #109 CAS
613 Avenue Create - challenge #86 anything goes
Before I go I would like to share with you my very first Zentangle. Click pic to see detail. The pattern in the middle is called Betweed. Few tangle patterns by Rick and Maria on their YouTube Channell.
Not perfect but it is a start and am enjoying the process but I still think I cannot draw. This is close enough and not bad if I say so my self.
Thank you for stopping by and Have a Fantastic Day.....maybe Zantangle your way through the day.
