Pumpkin was drawn free hand.  Whew!  That was the toughest part of this project as I am terrible at drawing!  Had to surf the internet to get instructions on how to draw a pumpkin.

Tangled Pocket Full of Posies

One of my first tangled projects.

Zentangle 024

I used the pocket template to practice tangling different designs.  It was the perfect size so it  didn't seem too intimidating.

Here are some of the tangled pockets I came up with.  Any of these could be added to the card.

I'm still learning....

Zentangle Thank You

Tangled Hummingbird

Oh my, I have caught the Zentangle bug!  I seem to do a little bit of tangling each day. 

I created several of these fun cards to send as thank you's to my customers.

Zentangle 032

I used a pre-printed sketch of the hummingbird found in the book Art of Zentangle.  I simply copied the sketch image out of the book onto a piece of Vellum Bristol Board paper.  Then, all I had to do was fill in the hummer with tangles.  I would never have been able to draw the hummingbird myself, so I gave myself permission to cheat a little by using the sketch in this wonderful book.  After all, Zentangle is supposed to be soothing, and I just took the stress of drawing right out of the equation!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes (for the greeting)

Ink: archival pens, pencil for shading

Paper: Basic Black, Vellum Bristol Board

Accessories: blending stump, Dimensionals
