Do you Zentangle? The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers wants you to try it!
As with any interest large or small, there is a universe of information and resources for Zentangle across the interwebs. For one thing, it is actually Zentangle® — accept no substitutes. You can become a Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT). There are Zentangle books, Zentangle courses... you get the idea.
I was not the only sister initially a bit intimidated by this challenge. But with the help of two websites, I came up with this:
This website gave me the idea to use circles to begin my Zentangle. A few of the patterns I came up with on my own, but a lot of them were based on patterns I found here. Of course, being me, I tended to add, subtract or modify any pattern I tried. My favourite is the loopy one up in the left corner; not too hard and a fun finished effect. I actually did enjoy making this, but I doubt I'll take it up as a full-time hobby. ;)
Once I had my panel made came the question of how to turn it into something more. I didn't want to cut off any and throw it away! Ultimately I came up with this design... it leaves me the smaller trapezoid panel that I can use for an "opposite" card!
Be sure to check out how the other sisters decided to run with this challenge. And we have a must-see guest designer, Jessa! We hope you'll discover your Zen(tangle) and join us!
