Zentangle #art

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*.

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.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
