More Zentangles and stamps

Since I took the Basic Zentangle class at The Queen's Ink three weeks ago I have turned into a Zentangling fool.  There has been only two or three times that I have not done some kind of zentangle in the last three weeks.  I would just clutter up this blog if I put everything out here, so I am going to be selective.  I will show two that I really like, for now...

I am finding some of the patterns I really like and want to incorporate them in every design.  I realize, I must move on to other patterns.  There was no string design to start off on this tangle.  I just started drawing and used the different space on the paper.

This tangle, I really, really like.  I use a stamp from Fabulous Florets, it give a nice start and then I drew around the stamped design with patterns.  Have I told you that I am totally hooked on doing Zentangles. 
 If anyone is Zentangling, I would love to post your designs here.  I have chatted with some of you out there, send me your pictures.....

MORE Zentangles.....

I just can not put my pens down.  I am so hooked on zentangles.  I find it so relaxing and fun.  My daughter and I took an hour this evening and played with different designs.  Here are two of my creations:

I don't have the patterns this time as I was just flipping through web pages.  My thought is to keep a journal and record the different designs I use.

I tried the white ball pen on black. I don't like this as much as black pen to white papers.  You be the judge.

New Year..... New Stuff !!!!

Lisa and I went to a Zentangles class today.... OMG new things to do on your cards and what nots.  We went in for a 3 hour class at Queens Ink in Savage Mill Mall.  We are so totally hooked.  It was so relaxing and the time just zoomed by.  So here are two samples that I did and learned eight patterns.  Zentangles is all about patterns. 

This was the first square.  I think it looks pretty good for a first timer.  The patterns are: static, florz, crescent moon, and hollibaugh.

This was square 2 and the patterns took a little more time.  The patterns are: emigle, printemps, keeko and cadent.
