|A few months ago I took the "Intermediate Copic Certification" the best part of the class was I sat right next to the most amazing and talented lady. You might know her?? Her name is Suzanne McNeil and she introduced me to "Zentangle"!! Suzanne is also the author of so many books on such a range of subjects it's really amazing and she's really amazing! During the class Suzanne was drawing and applying Zentangles to her drawings.....talk about fun to watch her in action!! Below are some thumbnails of these creative and inspiring Zentangle books available at Simon Says Stamp.|
These books are on my Christmas list for my sister-in-law and they are perfect for anyone who thinks they aren't creative. Sarah from Simon Says Stamp did a great post about Suzanne and Zentangle so you might want to check it out here. Once you have organized your doodles in a Zentange way I think you will look at stamps in a different way. I used this Penny Black butterfly stamp as a starting point to "Zentangle".
|If you want to try this zentangling on a stamped image..... look for a stamp with open spaces, stamp in a light ink such as Spun Sugar distress ink. Trace over the lines, change them up if you want and fill the spaces with Zentangles. On my butterfly I rounded the wings and adapted the lines as I was creating my design. The great thing about using a light ink is you won't see the lines but, they will guide you. I have some other stamped images that I did the same thing with so let me know if you are interested in seeing them. Enjoy your Sunday and a BIG THANK YOU for stopping by. Hugs, Kathy|
P.S. If you scroll down you will see another cupcake card I designed with the same stamp.
