It is not officially a Zentangle, as not all the objects are "tangles." It is called Zentangle Inspired Art, or ZIA. It was fun playing in my journal with hearts and flowers. I drew inspiration from a book by Stasi Eldredge entitled Becoming Myself...Embracing God's Dream of You. I have been reading this book with a group of ladies who meet each week to discuss the chapters, pray, praise, and share our experiences. The quote was written by Madeleine L'Engle. It is in a chapter on facing our fears and becoming free of them, through God's love. I am learning a lot about myself, and about God's unconditional love through this study. I highly encourage you to read Staci's book. I'm not quite half way through, and am finding myself jumping ahead!
I am trying something new with my art journal. I find it difficult to work in a large, bulky book. Maneuvering around the binding is cumbersome. As I work, I like to turn my page to work at different angles, and the notebook type journal made this really difficult. My solution.... I work on individual sheets of mixed media card stock. I will file my finished work in manilla folders and will bind them when I have several accumulated. I think I will like this, as I can put like pieces together. My ZIA's in one book, Zentangles in another, watercolor in another, mixed media in another; you get the idea.
Enjoy your week....and do something creative today!
