Zentangle Fun!

I have discovered a new love, Zentangles!  Zentangle is a form of doodling that is both relaxing and fun. Basically, you draw lines with pencil that look like strings on a paper to create a guideline for your zentangle. Next you use a black pen (I love the Pitt markers) and draw a tangle pattern into each section.

Here is a page from my journal that I filled with a zentangle design:
There are tons of zentangle ideas all around you, just look for patterns in everyday items.  You can see the section below is from a calender.
I used my zentangle designs and a photo transfer process to create new jewelry pieces for the spring.

For more information on zentangles, check out the website.
Stay tuned for more zentangle designs!

Orignial Artwork on Jewelry

Sorry that I have been away for so long, I am having a great time designing  new jewelry for spring!  This piece shows off my own original artwork.

I created the original paintings that I used in these pieces during a class at The Muse.


I used acrylic paint to create the first painting that I used in the bracelet.
This painting was created with watercolors. I really enjoyed experimenting with both.
 Well, it's back to the studio for more designing!  Promise to write more often.
