Zentangling a Card

Zentangling a Card

Have you ever tried Zentangle? It’s a combination of drawing and doodling, and a bit of meditation as well. At least it can be. How about a card using some zentangling as decoration?

This card started with the zentangle border. A bit of handmade paper, a few Stampin’ Up rub-ons, a bit of baker’s twine, and a card is done. I think it looks pretty cool myself, but I may be biased. 😉

If you want to try some Zentangle yourself, check out One Zentangle a Day by Beckah Krahula. (affiliate link) I haven’t taken a class on it yet, but used this book to learn a bit about it. The book is broken down into daily patterns to practice, as well as a bit of discussion about techniques that can help your zentangle drawing even more elaborate and realistic. It’s simple enough that my eight-year-old son can follow along, and detailed enough to keep me occupied.

Don’t forget, if you want to get a card from me, make sure you’re on my email list!
