Line Design Explained : Deluxe Edition

Line Design Explained : Deluxe Edition
I was asked if I could go into a bit more detail concerning the Line Design "process". I think the easiest way is with a few more pictures than my previous post on "how to". I hope this helps...and as always...if you ever have questions about anything on my blog...e-mail me at artwithmre@yahoo.com The materials you need for this project are good drawing paper(9x12...but could be done any size), Sharpie Marker, and your choice of media(see the bottom of this post for some ideas). Start with a gentle curve line across the paper. Don't go too crazy hilly with the line...it will make it difficult in the steps that are to come! Place eight dots on the line spaced at different distances. Go dot - to - dot across the entire line. As you are going dot -to- dot, you need to "camp out" on some of the segments. The two pictures above are the WRONG way to do this. So here you see the results of the ballooning out, pinching off, and going off the edge of your paper. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Zentangle Inspired Art Gallery I wanted to have all of this in the same place for easy review. I would like to see if my style is changing over time. Zentangle Some Zentangle Play...... I did this while watching TV a while back, in my Art journal. So relaxing. Zentangle, Schmen-tangle! I stay away from controversial subjects and negative issues on this blog. At the risk of life and limb I am going to talk about something that might be considered controversial.I have been doing what is now called Zentangles with the quilting on my quilts long before there was such a thing called Zentangles. In this closeup you can see how I used a different filler design on each section, leaving the "Bolt" unquilted to make it stand out. This is a closer view of one section of the quilt. This quilt was made by dye painting a design and then overpainting the dye painted area with paints.

zentangle Untangled I met Kass Hall last year as fellow exhibitors at the monster Papercraft Show in Brisbane. I fell in love with her ( although she will kill me for saying this) and her Mum. They are funny, bonza people. Kass is a mixed -media artist and certified Zentangle instructor. She features in my Supplies Me Workshop, giving her fave pen recommendation! Way back then, she was working on her book, and I have been waiting for Kass’s book to arrive with great anticipation. Doodling « Elizabeth Rosenberg's Blog I’ve always been a doodler. 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. Most of them featured spirals, which I loved even back then.
