I'm rediscovering ART. As a child I liked to draw and make designs. Throughout my life I've taken classes in figure drawing, watercolor, sculpture and pottery but never did much with any of these art forms. Enjoyed scrapbooking a lot as a creative outlet but when I discovered blogging a few years back I stopped scrapbooking or making cards. Blogging was so much easier and I could post my photos, then my friend Caryn opened up the possibilities of Art Journaling and ZenTangle in a class I'm still taking from her. It was fun, creative and artistic. Click to enlarge.
Here's some more zentangles or doodles I've made recently. There are many patterns online and you can try it without any special equipment. Just start with a piece of paper, pencil and fine ink pen to darken in your design. You'll find it relaxing...play around with color or shading.
A little valentine fun here and then some experimenting.
Still trying to figure out how to draw braids-it's not easy but fun.
It doesn't have to be perfect, use any mistakes to vary your design.
