I used Zentanlgles and stars, in Prismacolors and Pilot G2-07 black gel pen. From the sketchbook of Linda M. Smith.
I took the Compass from the Zentangles Workbook #1 cover. I added Prismacolors and am clearly influenced by Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. I also love stars. I am finding new ways to incorporate Zentangles into my work!
I incorporated Zentangle patterns and added the 4 Gates. I am inspired by Tibetan mandalas and artwork of deities such as Avalokiteswara. As you can see, I love hearts and stars and colors as well as black-and-white.
I made this up. On the left, we have Printemps in green and blue. That word is French for spring. In the middle, we have Static. The Crescent Moons pattern is at top. On the right, I forget the name, but it’s woven. Worth my time and money to learn these! You can find Zentangles on Pinterest and copy or modify. I find them easy.
I learned Zentangles from a workbook. A woman artist invented these. I forget the name of the publisher. There are 8 workbooks in this series. At least. I bought the Number 1 Zentangles workbook at The Velvet Elephant in Mount Shasta, California.
I’m picking up Zentangles from Pinterest, perhaps the world’s best free Zentangles tutorial! I’m learning to get as much “stuff” and education as possible, while spending as little money as possible. Yes, life pays! You name your recompense by what you do, by who you are. The last two sentences are a quote from Imelda Shanklin’s “What Are You?” book, published long ago. Like, back in the 1920’s.
bringing joy, beauty, and healing to the world through Linda's art, writing, and music!
