Had a fun evening doing a little “organic ocean” tangling with Judy and Julie the other night. I’ve met with them a few times now, creating some fun “stuff”. We’ve done our pets, an “organic garden” and now, this time, our little ocean ZIA. This class, I pre-watercolored Apprentice tiles and Bijous. We first completed the larger tile, then I wanted to show them how they can take the very same tangles and create a smaller one on the Bijou. Lots of fun!
Looking forward to our next get-together!
Patterns – Rixty, Squid, Coral Seeds, Angelfish, Phycops, Printemps, Cruffle, Fescue, Tipple
I’ve also had an “Organic Garden” class last weekend with Laurie and Karin. As I often do, I forgot to take pictures of our completed work. Karin had to leave a little early so she completed hers at home then sent me a picture. She wanted to create a “tree” on her tile and came up with her own (right side of paper). Very nice. (We did these on Strathmore Artagain paper.)
I had been playing with gardens prior to the class, as well as checking out my new Suzanne McNeill “Floribunda Woodland” book. Lots of little embellishments for Zentangle ZIA’s. Since I was doing a garden, I picked out a little frog and put him in the “pond”. Gave him a little color just for fun! Check out Suzanne’s book if you have a chance. There’s also a “Floribunda Basics” with lots of flowers, vines, leaves, etc. As I said, little embellishment ideas!
