Come and Zentangle With Me!


 
Yippee!  It's Friday!  We made it!
 
It's also the night of my first in a series of Coffee & A Card (or Two) Class!
 
This class is going to be so much fun...I shared with you yesterday the Drapery Fold...did you see it?  If not....when you are done here, you'll want to go back and see that fun card (or come to class tonight and make them both).
 
So when I was thinking...what would be a super fun card to share with everyone....along with the Drapery Fold Class...something for each stamper to bring out their personality...something that is a bit simple...but a bit off the wall as well!
 
Well, this card came to mind....it was a card I had made in the past but every time I see it, it makes me smile....and is really striking.
 
This technique is called Zentangle.
 
Here's what I found out about it online.....
The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.

We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.

So...how is it done?

Simple.

I stamped using the Black Ink pad and The Blended Bloom stamp...it's a single stamp....originally created for watercoloring...but we are taking it to a whole different level.

Here's my Zentangle Card....
 
 
All you have to do is to use a fine point maker (I used the Project Life Marker) and doodle inside the stamped image....Some of the areas I filled in with black and then different types of doodling...there is nothing wrong in this fun technique.

 
I love it....and I cannot wait to see your card you create at class.  Don't get yourself stuck in purchasing all those coloring type books for adults.
 
Create your own doodle work with this fun Zentalge Method!


 
It's super fun!
Let me know if you would like to attend class or host a private class of your own and we can all get into the art of Zentangle!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

Remarkable Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to the Remarkable 
Blog Hop Sale-A-Bration 
I'm so excited to be a part of this month's blog hop....the theme for this month is the must have's...the cannot live without....even if they are on back order..... from the Occasions Spring Catalog and/or the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
So when I saw this theme, I knew immediately what I had to have the first time I got a glimpse at the Occasions Catalog...I have to say...it was love at first sight....and I had to have them!
Unfortunately attending the On Stage Event in November, 2016, I was hoping I would have won the stamp set....but no worries...it was worth the wait to be able to order from the catalog when demos were able to preorder.....so, what's my pick/s you ask?
Well, they are both posted on the same page in the Occasions Catalog...page 24...
Have you figured it out yet?
It had to be the Beautiful You Stamp Set (item # 143004 W and # 143637 C) and the Watercolor Pencils Iitem # 141709)
Here's a fun card I c…
