Before we tangled on the ornaments we did a practice sheet.

It is very addictive! Zentangle is used a lot for various types of therapy. You can learn more about Zentangle patterns at the web site, Tanglepatternscom

I only completed these two cards in the two hours as I was a bit overwhelmed with the choices, taking longer to make decisions. More accomplished artists whipped out several.
I didn’t get this one completed. It needs something but I don’t know what. Any suggestions?

I spent a little time this evening playing with my Gelli Plate. Watching a video on Carolyn Dude’s web site, A Colorful Journey, I became intrigued with a technique. Using cardboard and Tulip Dimensional Paint she made a texture plate. Cheap, disposable, original…. had to give it a try!
If you are not familiar with the Gelli Plate, it is used for a monoprinting technique. Click here to see a video showing how it works.

This gourd bird needed a little rework on his beak, now is waiting for some paint touch-up.
This garden flag needs something else; any suggestions?
I created this cute little box in a recent Kristin Powers class at Ephemera Paducah. Covering the inside and a little paint touch up, it will be finished.
All this decoupage bracelet needs is a final coat of gel medium.
Experimenting with tangles and watercolor.
The start of a journal cover.
This will be a box to house the journals.
These are only a few of my unfinished projects. I used to think not finishing a project before starting another one was a discipline issue. As I talk with other crafters, I realize it is very common among creative folks. I now choose to think of it as part of my creative personality.
