Zentangle Flower Power

Over at Just for Fun  this week, the challenge is "Zentangle".

I've heard of Zentangle but never tried it, so this challenge was just the coaxing I needed to give it a go. And what fun it turned out to be ...

To give me a start I drew round a Tim Holtz Dress form, then I just began doodling ....



















I then added a bit of colour with Promarkers

Then I mounted it behind a dress form cut out, added a few Zentangle flowers, and voila, a snazzy bookmark.


This was so enjoyable to do - and a nice change from inks & stamps!  Why not give it a go.

Happy Doodling
Suze xx

This is really great Suze. I started doing zentangle a few months ago, I found it very addictive and also relaxing. Dianne.

I love this original card. I should give it a go because I doodle continually in meetings! I have always meant to try this technique. I will now.

Suze Love your whole take on the tangle challenge but i cannot see it on the Just for Fun challenge and as you have been generous enough to send other people to us its a shame yours is not there or have I lost my eyesight? XOXO Zoe
