Art Journal Pages - Zentangle
It's another Taco Art Piece. It's what I'm calling the stuff I do while sitting at Taco Bell. What? You don't hang out at the Bell? LOL Well I do! After I eat my $2.00 meal, I pull out the art supplies and enjoy the air conditioning, free wifi and free refills!! *wink wink* My kids have dubbed me the Taco Picasso. Not that I'm that good... no way! Just that it's the only artist they could think of --- and the fact that the first sketch I did at taco bell was of Joey and I skewed his features because he jumps around a lot. heh. That image is coming another day, but here's a sneak peek!
On Tuesday, my friend Connie said to me, "Do you Zentangle?" I have to admit. I was stumped, never heard of that one. You either? Well she provided a link and I followed it to find out it's an artform of repetitive patterns. Very much like the doodling I've been doing all my life. They have a video up on how to do a new thing though that I have not seen before. It's called Between.... It looks like braided leather and it's sweeet! Here's a one minute sample that I did. Yes, I grabbed any marker in reach and did this one in 58 seconds this morning when I was showing it to my son.
Zentangle's newsletter is awesome for some new pattern ideas. I particularly like these --- this one is called Shard.
And this one is Unyon.
I have a book full of fill patterns that I'll be adding to as I read more about tangling. If you are local, and would like to check it out, let me know. Otherwise, I can share some of my patterns or tangles in future posts.
