Our card ministry group met yesterday. I wanted to travel lightly and not have to pack half of my craft room, so I brought my Micron pens and journal to work on some Zendoodles.
For this page I started with a template a friend had made from a Spellbinders die and I traced the butterflies, overlapping the bottom two. During the crop, I tangled the insides of the butterflies with patterns. I added the Einstein quote this morning. I am not thrilled wih my writing, but am working on lettering techniques, so thought I would just dive right in. This is the first page of my new journal. I haven't decided if it's going to be a zentangle journal or a lettering journal. Maybe it will be both!
I decided to add some color, so pulled out my Tim Holtz distress markers and a water brush. Since the Micron pen is permanent ink, I just started adding color with my markers and used my water brush to blend. Here is the finished version:
Have you tried Zentangles? This is an easy way to get started. Just trace a template shape, or stamp an open image, and tangle (doodling with patterns) inside the image area. For more information and ideas about Zentangle, go to www.zentangle.com.
Thanks for stopping by.
