Zentangled Daisy #363

Stampendous Jumbo DaisyA quick little piece of artwork today.  I found this daisy stamped onto a Distress Inked background in my craft stash – one of my creations at a demonstration.  The colours were so striking I thought I would have a play around with some zentangling detail around the edge.  To give it a dramatic look, I stuck to just one pattern.  A few white highlights and its all ready to put onto a card or into my art journal.  The stamp is from Stampendous – the Jumbo Daisy.  Artwork doesn’t have to be complicated – the most simple designs can be most effective!Stampendous Jumbo Daisy

A Little Colourful Zentangle #269

Woodware Sprig of Holly StampToday’s card is made using the Woodware Sprig of Holly Stamp (now back in stock!).  This time I have worked my zentangle patterns using the coloured Sakura Micron Pens.  You can work quite simple patterns but they look so effective in the different colours.   The patterns I’ve used today are really simple and quick ones to do, so don’t be daunted to have a go at zentangling  – you don’t need to do the really complicated patterns to make it look good!

I’ve had this stamp in the shop for a while and kept wanting one in my collection – well I finally caved in and had one for myself.  Isn’t he cute!  You obviously thought so too as due to this sample card, he sold out on Sunday – but don’t worry – I’ll get him back in stock again! (more…)

Laugh #220

aug3A fun little piece today.  I all started with a quick demonstration last club night of the Distress Paints to show how you can blend them and create an interesting background.

I’ve worked (I think!) with Salty Ocean and Wild honey with a touch of green – probably Mowed Lawn (I forgot to make a note!).  I then used the cap of the paint into some red (festive berries) to add on some circles. (more…)

Geometric at the Male Room #219

July30I am really into the blog challenges this week – another one today for The Male Room.  Their theme is a masculine card on a Geometric theme – and you all know my love for Zentangling.. so I thought I would base my card around this!

I started by die cutting four identical squares from white card and then started playing with some patterns (with thanks to Pinterest for some inspiration!) (more…)
