I thought it was about time I wrote a post that wasn't just about challenges I was entering.
Sometime back I discovered Zentangle & although I thought it sounded interesting I didn't actually get around to trying it out. Then last year when I went on holiday I took a notebook & fine nib pen with me so that when I had quiet moment or two - if I had a quiet moment or two - I could have a play.
Before going on holiday I "Googled" it to see if there was anything special I should be doing. Most of the articles I found talked about the Zentangle tile. So that is what I tried. I can't show you the results as I don't appear to have kept them for some reason. Or perhaps they are in one of the few remaining boxes I have left to unpack.
When I got back home from my holiday I realised I could use some of my outline stamps for this. Now I have not got confused - I know this is my digital blog. But my play this weekend was exactly that - digital - well the base image was. I found this lovely & perfect butterfly on a royalty free website a few weeks back & decided it would be my first proper attempt.
Here is how this butterfly ended up looking after my play, which I have to say - was really very relaxing;
I am really pleased with it & have now started on a styilised flower. Will be showing that later. So that I can finally write a post on my rubber stamping blog - I am now off to find a suitable stamp & have a play.
Thank you for dropping by, have a lovely day.
