Sketchbook Tangle...

I was working on some smaller 4" square Zentangles (paper from my Christmas Zentangle kit gift) and broke out my sketchbook and worked on a larger scale "sketch tangle"...

I was in the mood to scratch draw, scribble in the details... Not a time for me to break out the obsessive shader in me (although I do want to go back in and pencil shade this one a bit).

Then I went in and filled in a bit more detail & darker areas over the last 2 days. Then tonight added a bit around the edges along with the swirls in the margins...

Here is the before string:

I feel excited to be drawing again!
Now to work it into my clay... Yippee!!!

  1. The upper right corner is speaking to me today. I am in a swirly, twirly mood ;-)

  2. Your zentangle design is really cool. I like it.

  3. Coolaroo! This approach is liberating isn't it!

  4. Oh man. You make me want to Tangle with you! I am really enjoying where you are taking these drawings and think that you will be doing some great clay versions of these, Marsha!
    Enjoy the day!

  5. Thanks you guys! I am so addicted to it… Some days it is all about the feel of the pen on paper to me. I want to focus a bit more on the design, but just don't have the ideas quite there yet. Erin - you should tangle for sure. Like LeAnne says - just let your mind go and the pen will follow… You'll love it (you're amazing with your drawing skills!)...


I would love to hear what you think…
