Zentangle Inspired Art - Tropical Rock

This past summer my friend Sharon and I collected some flat rocks to use to draw zentangles. I traced the rock into my small sketch journal and then drew my design in that shape. I wanted to practice the design before I drew it on the rock. I coloured it in with markers.
Here is a picture of the rock and journal. I put a micron marker in the picture as a size comparison. I still haven't drawn the design on the rock yet! I'll have to try it soon.

Happy Halloween! :D

Tree Art Journal - Autumn's Splendor

I just love the colours of Fall. I did this scene in my tree art journal using all the fall colours. I stamped it with the Stampin' Up stamp set called "Season of Friendship". I sponged the background and used masks for the sun and cloud. Then I doodled the frame and printed the title. The wee bird is singing in the tree.
Happy Fall y'all!

Tree Art Journal - Christmas Joy Tree

Christmas in October? Actually no! *LOL* I played with this page for months doing little bits of it at a time. I followed a You Tube video by Christy Tomlinson called "Christy Tomlinson Mixed Media Collage: Dec 2012 Kit". Christy did this on a canvas and I did mine in my tree art journal. I did not try to copy hers, but used the ideas to create my own version.
The background has tissue paper glued all over it so it has a lot of texture. Stamping and painting were also added to the background. Then the tree was collaged on using different Christmas themed patterned papers. Then I doodled and glittered and stamped on the tree to "decorate" it.
This page was a lot of fun to do and very different for me.
Have fun trying something new today!!!!   :D

Zentangle Inspired Art - Cayke Walk

This page in my small sketch journal was inspired by a new tangle pattern I saw on called Cayke created by Rose Brown. I wanted to give the pattern a try and this is what I created. The Cayke tangle is at the top and bottom of this tangle.
This was fun. Have you tried a new tangle pattern lately? Give it a try.
Happy Tangling! :D
