Me, My Craft and I: Zentangle ou l'art du gribouillage! Hello Buddies!! Pendant mon congé de maternité, vu qu'il m'était impossible de m'asseoir à ma table de travail pour faire mes petites créations chéries sans être interrompu par mon cher et tendre petit bout réclamant son dû à corps et à cris (humm vive la maternité!), j'ai dû me rabattre vers un art qui peut se faire à 1 main si l'on est un peu doué, tout en berçant bébé de l'autre. Le Zentangle, mes amis, est devenu mon nouvel exutoire, ma nouvelle forme d’expression artistique. Au plus simple, on débute par l'apprentissage des motifs. - Celui que j'utilise le plus est l'Uni Pin. On peut utiliser tous les stylos qui nous passe sous la main. Il m'arrive de colorer mes dessins et pour cela j'utilise plusieurs techniques: - L'aquarelle et la gouache en pastille. L'aquarelle donne une touche plus artistique aux dessins. - Les feutres Stabilo ont l'avantage d'avoir des pointes fines et d'être utiliser pour dessiner les motifs mais aussi bien pour colorer.

Tangle Tangle Tangle How to draw GRASSROOTS « Happy Monday, y’all. Delighted as always to have your company again today. I was looking through my “archives” for something both simple to do as well as being just a little different and remembered Australian CZT Lianne Woods’s Grassroots tangle. Grassroots is based on a dot-grid and it’s another one of those tangles that provides a blank slate for embellishment. One of the first tangles on the site based on this same type of dot-grid was JJ LaBarbera’s Huggy Bear and there have been several more since. Lianne writes, “Grassroots is a very simple tangle using the basic elements of the . and ( . This very simple tangle can be used as is. Also, as I was playing with it I kept thinking of it as the foundation to many, many tangleations. Fills, shading, color … there are so many possibilities for Grassroots that I’m still contemplating how I want to proceed further with my example. Check out the tag liannew for more of Lianne’s tangles on Did it slip your mind?

TanglePatterns Strings | KunstKramKiste Es ist Pfingstmontag, ein ruhiger, sonniger Tag, der nun langsam in den Abend übergeht. Ich habe die Zeit genutzt und meine Winterkleidung aussortiert. Es ist nicht wahrscheinlich, dass jetzt noch winterliche Temperaturen zu erwarten sind. Aber ich habe die Zeit auch genutzt, um mich mit Stift und Papier ein wenig zu entspannen. Alle drei Teile sind klassische 9x9cm groß und ich habe zum Zeichnen den Pigmentliner 0,05 und Bleistift 2B zum Schattieren verwendet. Hier zeigt Linda Farmer neben ihrer sehr gut organisierten Mustersammlung seit Neuestem auch Stringvorschläge, die ich nutzen möchte, um einfach Muster auszuprobieren oder mir lange nicht verwendete wieder in Erinnerung zu bringen.

Patterns that I have developed | Denzer Family Art My step outs are sometimes crazy, I usually find myself using a new pattern in a zentangle and then try to figure out how someone else could do the same. My mind isn’t always logical but this is what happens. I will share all the patterns I have given steps to in this post. I apologize for some of the photo quality in my earlier postings.

All the way back in my high school days, I used to doodle while the teacher was lecturing (though I might have been better off if I’d taken notes instead). I’d fill page after page of my notebooks with doodles. I’ve always found that my creativity is greatly influenced by music, and I try to make that work for me in my studio as often as possible by listening to music that makes me feel good. I thought it might be fun to share some of the doodles I’ve been creating lately. All of my doodles start out simple, like this one: But then, over time, I add to the blank spaces in each one, and they become more detailed. This one, which is completely filled in until there is almost no space at all, is finished. I think that my doodling looks a lot like my quilting. As for my quilting, well, I am doing some of that. I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my doodling journal.
