Zentangled!!!

Wow we've been Zentangled over at Crafting with Dragonflies this fortnight. Hilde does like to stretch our creativity, which I love!! So no complaints from me. I must say I haven't Zentangled before or as I would called it 'doodling'. Now we've all doodled I'm sure when we've been chatting on the phone maybe and had a pen in our hands. Am I correct? Now it's got a fancy arty name, Zentangle!! Who thinks of these new words?

                                                        We have two sponsors this time.

Prize: 8 digis
 
 
Prize: 3 digis
 
I have chosen an image from Bugaboo, Hi Flower.
 
 
I used black card stock for the base and printed the image onto white card. Then I began playing with my black sharpie pen. I found lots of inspiration for Zentangle patterns on the web. So just do a Google search and you'll come up with many designs or you could make your own doodles. Just play around and have fun.
As you can see I doodled the flower and the leaves and the grass and the word 'Hi'. I also did some Zentangling on a square of paper and then cut strips from this and placed them down the sides of the main image to frame it.
 
I am going to make more, as a set of notelets, using the same image. I don't know about you but I use a number of notelet cards throughout the year. This will be useful when I'm sending a gift or just a note to tell someone I'm thinking of them.
 
I must say I enjoyed this task. I found it very relaxing to doodle. I'm sure you will too once you get started. So off you go and see what the rest of the team of Dragonflies have Zentangled. You won't be disappointed, there are some great ideas to get your mojo going.
 
Don't forget this is a card challenge with some Zentangling and it has to be black and white. Please can I also plead that one of the rules is to be a follower. We often get entries that are not and therefore can't be considered for a prize or a top three spot. Such a shame when just a simple click of the button will put you in with a chance to win.
 
Have fun and Happy Zentangling!!

  3. Oh, that's clever for black and white - Zentangling, what a good idea. I like your flowers and the strips very much, you've made such a nice design. I agree, it's so useful to have a stack of cards on hand, I never have enough cards. Thanks very much for joining in with Soartful, do come again.
