I love to zentangle… its definitely an addiction! I will quite happily potter with my pad and pen and create patterns.
I have another Zentangle workshop coming up later this week and wanted to produce some new samples to show the group to give them ideas for what other ways they can use zentangling.
For this piece I drew the word love first – you could always print out a word and trace it on a lightbox.
I divided the background with randomly drawn lines to create different sections that I could put my patterns into.
I’ve been busy browsing the zentangle books (we stock 11 different books with different patterns in them) – and also online to get ideas of some new patterns to try. The ideal thing with zentangling is everytime you create something new, you can do new patterns and that then becomes your future reference to remember the patterns.
Here are some closeup shots of the different patterns.
If you haven’t tried zentangling yet – I urge you to give it a go. You don’t need to have any fancy equipment or tools, just start with a piece of paper and a biro! I first started by cutting out a scalloped nestabilities shape and dividing it into sections and filling in the patterns. Go on – give it a try!
If you saw my post yesterday, you’ll know my poor dog Molly isn’t well. Well a quick update – she’s still at the vets and will be for the rest of the week. We’ve found out she had a stroke in her spine and this has affected the mobility in her paw so she is having to undergo physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. The house is very empty without her. I’ll keep you posted with her progress.
