Zentangle...

Well, today was our first workshops of the year...so we took it easy and had a couple of relaxing Zentangle workshops...
We started by making some basic tiles for future reference ...using first a pencil and then later a black fine liner pen.


We then used the Clarity Kingfisher stamp to create this card...


A branch and border were drawn free hand, so that the bird had somewhere to sit.
More Zentangle was added to the image ...the amount depended on the individual...then a little masking, some sky and land was added..


This stamp is perfect for zentangling and can be used for a wide variety of card designs...
Our second card was made using the Filigraphy leaves kit and a butterfly from the Filigraphy Framer kit..


All the stamping was done using a black Archival ink pad...colour was added on this image using watercolour pencils...


Glossy Accents can be used to highlight the leaves...
It was so good to see everyone after our Christmas break...and thanks Julie for our presents...
Thanks for popping in today....
Stay safe and warm.....Jo. X

  8. Sorry I'm late commenting Jo, Blogger was playing up. I love how you've used the kingfisher to zentangle, what a lovely workshop, your ladies must have been well pleased. Zentangle is such a therapeutic thing to do with minimal tools, I would have loved it xx

  9. Hi Jo, your zentangles are fab!. We too decided to ease into our new year workshops with a bit of zentangle & everyone really got into it even though some were a bit worried initially about how to begin. I have found it quite addictive & very easy to just sit & do even while watching tv.
    Really great done with that Kingfisher stamp from clarity too.
