I am a great admirer of the amazing Zentangle art I see on Pinterest, but I never realised just how skilled these artist are until I tried it for myself. The recent Crafty Boots Black and White Challenge gave me the idea to try my hand at Zentangle.
I sat down with a plain sheet of card and discovered my first problem, where to start and then I needed to find suitable patterns for my design. This is actually my second attempt, I tried to cram too much into my first design, too many patterns and the overall effect looked like a lot of chicken scratches.
For my second attempt I took my inspiration from some of those artists on Pinterest and some of my other ideas came from my collection of stencils, I think I need to practice more, but it is sometimes good to push ourselves outside our comfort zones - or so I have been told!
I layered my finished design onto white card and black pearlised papers.
