I’ve been away concentrating on my fundraising and have also put together a new video of crafts for this quarter. Since I was knee deep in files, I wanted to add certain things to my art/sketches category like these Zentangle projects. I have been practising for a year. This form helps with meditation and concentration, and has been a boon in all of that to help me focus and think only of the moment. There are no good or bad tangles, I have since learned. And, it is what it is. So, slowly, I am trying to apply that with regard to life, and *stuff*.
Black ink and pencil shading Zentangle box frame commissioned for Mother’s Day.
Instead of tangling on pads of paper, I wanted to find other mediums to use: e.g wooden plaques, varnished, bottles etc – making more of a lasting keepsake.
One of the donations I received was a box full of lovely smooth wood, (I made into bookmarks) unlike the plaque, which ripped my pen nibs to shreds, these were a treat to work. So calming. I even ventured into colour on some, which for me is rare.
Excuse my photography. It was very late, I was very tired and didn’t even spot the blurriness due to my own.
