Zentangle Lessons

I’ve been busy since Christmas creating some ideas for the January Art Journaling Group.  I had previously asked the group if they would like to learn some zentangle or a new painting technique.  Most responded with a big vote for zentangle.  I thought I needed to brush up on some zentangle so have been trying to sketch something every day.  These are a few of what I’ve created thus far.  Not sure yet what I will be teaching for the upcoming art journaling class but I’m going to be ready!!

Today I finished my last commissioned piece for the holiday season.  Knowing not to put added pressure on myself, I like to have time before the Christmas holiday to enjoy the season.  This is a special time of the year and needs to be enjoyed!  This afternoon I let my mind rest and did this little zentangle snowman.  It felt good to just doodle and not have any expectations as to the outcome.  He seems happy with all that design on his body and the little bird hanging out on his arm!  We’ve had the worst chill since 1997 here in Montana so I had to add Winter Chill on the snowman’s  bottom!!  I doubt he would even notice the cold!!
