Yesterday on Facebook I said I needed some motivation to create something. I also chatted with my FL craft buddy Bev, talking about having the supplies but sometimes I get overwhelmed and end up doing nothing LOL.
Dayna Collins told me that when she picks up a pen or pencil and starts to doodle it helps. So Dayna - you got me started.
At first Zentangle fascinated me but also I was intimidated. I know when I'm on the phone I doodle - mostly squares for some reason. I'm following a few blogs that feature zentangles and also some on YouTube, so I started there.
I did what any beginner would do - traced my hand LOL! I created sections and just started doodling. I had some music on - Lady Gaga, Earth, Wind & Fire and some other upbeat stuff that I would want to dance to. I made some boo-boos and used a pen not a marker but all in all I think my first attempt is pretty fair. It was very relaxing to me but time consuming so Bev - my project will be today LOL!
Here are some Zentangle blogs, sites & YouTube videos - enjoy!
