Have you heard of Zentangles.
I had just heard of it on 2 Peas on the stamping board.
Here is a description of them Zentangles.
I love to learn and try my hand at all types of arts and crafts, so I thought I would give it a go.
Here is my finished piece.
So what I did was make a circle mask and stamped this image inside the circle.
Then I made my marks evenly around the circle that I drew.
Then you mark off sections and start to doodle patterns within each section.
These are normally done on 2 1/2 " square pieces of paper. But you know I'm not normal and have to try something different ;)
Here is is all done.
I have a problem with black and white images like this.
Like with the smell of black pencil crayons (yes I am odd) these images seem to give me a headache. And because I love colour, I thought I would add some pizazz to it :)
So I used my Stampin Up water markers to colour in the doodles.
Now this is more my style :)
I am not sure how I like it, I didn't go into a Zen like state while drawing this. Not sure if I will ever do another one again.
But I am glad that I tried my hand at one.
I think I like my doodling better :)
On to My Yesterday:
Well it was a gorgeous day. I didn't sit outside all day, but it was a beautiful one.
Hilarious story...well to me ;)
Kristy and I went out in the jeep. I opened the window for a bit to cool down the jeep. Then rolled them up.
Unaware that a spider came in Kristy's window, dangling on its web
Luckily I was at a stop sign, as she freaked out, undid her seat belt and practically jumped into my lap, lol.
I was laughing so hard, as I put the jeep in park and tried to find the
button to open the window. I told her to blow on the spider, then it will float
out the window and then close it. I don't think she heard me over her
It did finally go out the window and she rolled it up.
I am still laughing about it. I guess I won't be getting a mother of the year award for this one, lol.
Onto My Day:
After driving Kristy to her co-op, my childhood friend, Kelly and I went to the Cascades for a long hike. We hadn't seen each other in about 1 1/2 years. You wouldn't think so though.
We were following the trails, and looking at the beautiful scenery and laughing our butts off.
When we noticed that the trails got rougher and the trail markers were no longer.
We climbed up a huge hill and at the top was a lady walking her dogs.
We asked her if the parking lot was coming up, which she informed us that there was a field ahead, no parking lot.
Seriously, because I had to pick Kristy up from Co Op in about 45 minutes and we had been walking for well over an hour, closer to 1 1/2 hours.
I don't know how many times Kelly and I get lost during our hikes, lol.
So we hiked back the way we came, but didn't check out the water falls.
As it turned out I was 10 minutes late to pick up Kristy, but we found her walking home, she was 1/2 way there.
Yup, I'll be lucky to get a Mothers day card from her this year, lol.
Hope you all had a creative Thursday :)
