Zentangling Randomly

My brain is tired, so I think it's time to take a break from my usual cardmaking for a while, 
but I will be back - I have too many lovely stamp sets not to come back!

This week, I've been Zentangling!


As I haven't done any Zentangles for a while, 
I referred to a book that has lots of fabulous patterns in it.


I've been using blank pages in my journal as they have a dotty grid on them,
which makes Zentangle just a little bit easier.


On some pages, I've drawn outlines with black pen and filled them in. 


Some designs take a couple of hours, others have been worked on over a couple of days.


On some pages, I've drawn the outlines in pencil, filling them in with black ink,
then rubbing out the pencil lines.


It's always a bit of a surprise at how the pattern evolves and comes to completion.


Some pages are definitely more interesting than others,
but how they turn out is random, depending on what patterns I use.

 As I said at the beginning of this post, I'm going to take a little break from crafting
but I will be back, with some fresh ideas and enthusiasm.
Until then ......

Happy Crafting!

  1. Zentangling is an art form I have never tried, as it seems much too complicated for my 75-year-old brain. I have to admit, however, that I love the patterns that you have created and I am inspired to get out my markers and have a go at coloring again! I know what you mean about taking a break. When I just checked when I last posted on my blog, I was amazed to discover it was April this year. I guess I need to get creative. (Just sent you an email.)
