Hi Beck Beattie here today with a share that I hope will help lots of you get started with one of the latest trends! There is so much Zentangling out there and I can’t say I have had much of a chance to get to play with the technique. I would love to do some classes or read a book to help me into it more.
While away at a retreat recently I thought I might have a bit of a play and well I just didn’t know where to start even though a friend had provided me with some printout information and pictures to help. There I was sitting with all my Crafter’s Workshop stencils sitting in front of me and the light bulb went off! Why not use my stencils as a starting point!
I created my main design using the Trapazoid Stencil, tracing it with a black felt marker.
Now the tricky bit… starting those patterns. I dug into my stencils and found lots of stencils helpful for a pattern starting point so I got busy with them. Building on the patterns as I went.
As you can see I used lots of different stencils for some different patterns. I have a LONG way to go to improve with this art, but it sure was fun giving it a go.
I later took the design area and added it to a card base with a simple sentiment stamp and some enamel dots and it was complete. I also love how gender neutral the card is, a great one to have up my sleeve for those unexpected birthday gifts!
I would love to see you give this a go. If you get a chance to play along with me. Just share them on the Facebook page!
Hope you love my share today!!
