Eeek what a horrible day - it's grey, cold and wet, very wet!
Thankfully I haven't got to go anywhere, my boy is at home, not well, so I am on sympathetic mum duties!
Today I want to share some Zentangles with you. I recently rediscovered this wonderful form of doodling, after spying some fantastic creations while snooping the WOYWW desks. Anyway I bought a rather inexpensive art journal and started. My first creation was more about learning to 'doodle' in certain ways and creating forms. From then on I embraced this intricate (mine seem to be intricate and complex designs!) creation and went with whatever felt right. My first proper piece was formed around our initials (Z for Zoe & K for Keagan). It was on my desk the other week during WOYWW but now it's framed and on the wall -
I didn't want to keep it in the book I wanted to be able to see it, so I got it framed properly (my dad is an artist so I have a framer at hand!) and now I can see it every day, and I'm proud of it, it took a long time but it's special to me.
Some of my Zentangles will remain in that book, but others felt too creative to leave there. I drew a circular 'Zen-doodle' which I rather liked, so I took it out and cut it in half. I then backed it onto black card before mounting the 2 halves onto 2 cards.
See what you think? -
I kept the card simple - I felt the designs were detailed enough without over embellishing them. I'm really pleased with how they turned out, it's something different and I think these cards are unisex, and form a different style to many of my other creations. I will definitely be doing this more often!
Anyway take care,
