Today I went to Staples to pick up something for my daughter. It is that time of year when they are selling things for school and so the prices are cut to really entice you to buy. I was looking for a finishing spray for my bookmarks and walked past a sketchbook which was on sell for 3 dollars off the regular price. Now paper and I have this crazy dynamic. I just can never have too much in my stash. The thing was that this paper came in a 8 1/2 x 11 size and I like to tangle small. I decided to buy the paper even if it presented the enticement to try bigger pieces of zentangle. It turns out that the paper felt liberating. It was great fun moving out and out from the center adding layer after layer. And so I present, liberation!
Starting tomorrow our museum is having an art show for the month of July. The theme is women and their art. I am still not ready to do a large piece so I decided to create bookmarks. I have been having a lot of fun doing this. My next post will highlight some of them. Staying with the theme of bookmarks I decided to do whatever challenge Laura came up with on a bookmark. So this morning I was intrigued by the challenge. I read it at about 5:30 a.m. and was too lazy to get up from my tangling station to go and find a string and a weight. What I came up with was my camera sitting next to me. I do not have a picture of the string making process because I was using the camera as the weight and the wrist rope....you know that thing you loop around your wrist so that the camera does not fall.... and this is the tangle that developed from my efforts.
Thank you to our guest challenger - Sue Jacobs.
Second try.... using a key and string
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, clerk, and appreciator of art. Sometimes I try to produce some art myself. Mainly I love the art of others. Doodling has been a big part of my life. Notes were never left unadorned. Now that I have found zentangle....doodling has become more exciting and fun! I hope you enjoy.
