It's August now! Summer is going too fast!
We have a new Progressive challenge at the Outlawz that starts August 1 and runs through August 31st! Jean Chaney, my friend and teammate at the Outlawz has provided two images this month. They are called Swish, the Angelfish and Swish, Tangled.
Here is a word from Jean about her images.
As a Certified Zentangle teacher, I feel it is important for you to know that these images, while using some of the patterns of Zentangle are in actuality ZIA’s (Zentangle Inspired Art). The Zentangle® method is an easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to use structured patterns to create beautiful images. Do read more about this method from the founders of this meditative approach to art on their website. Zentangle.com
For ZIA, images can be drawn and filled with patterns. Color may be added. Two images have been provided this month. One filled with tangles and the other leaves room to add your own if you choose. Color away and enjoy. I’m looking forward to seeing your creative additions.
Here are my cards. Hope you will stop by the challenge and see what my teammates have made with these super cute images!
This card is with the image, Swish, Tangled. Jean has created a little scene with Swish and is part of the image. I colored with Copic markers and just used some papers, ribbon, and washi tape from my stash of supplies. A white Faber Castell Pitt Pen made the white dots.
This card has Jean's image, Swish the Angelfish and I colored him/her with my Copic markers. The background scenery is an underwater digi by Make It Crafty.
