This week's tutorial is brought to us by Lydia Fiedler - she's sharing her love and technique for Zentangling! I hope you'll watch her video and catch a glimpse of how relaxing this technique can be.
I have to confess that it actually stresses me out.
It's just not my thing... but I did it for Lydia. I told her I'd much rather spend an hour layering colors than trying to come up with unique black-and-white patterns. In fact I did that on my card after Zentangling, just to calm myself down!
I placed an order with My Favorite Things last month - I'd been meaning to get their cardstock sampler for a while, but had been putting it off. When I saw the die they were offering free with a $60 order in May, I knew my time had come. I love this one! It's such a great size, and a sweet message, and I love the cut-out globe. Beautiful.
Here's my card...
I used the die to deboss my main panel, then set to work outlining, sectioning off, and then doodling in each land area.
I shaded the ocean with Prismacolor pencils.
Whether it's your style or not... we hope you'll give this a try!
