A weekend spent – so far – doodling and clearing my head.
Immensely tired as we come to the end of the first half term and so I ditched ringing for the third week at the home to stay slobbed out in front of the TV.
I also came to keeping my hands busy and doing a bit of creative doodling, and so combined two hobbies: sending postcards to strangers through Postcrossing and making Zentangles.
Here are three cards I made:
Today, more of the same. Some work in my sketch book
Some new types of different tangles.
NB, my sketchbook looks like this:
It reminds me of my solo audiobook for Librivox, for which I still get a lot of email thanks from around the world.
I’ve also been having a go at making Zentangle tiles on Artist Trading Cards.
I also thought I’d have a go at making one in colour, using my fab set of multicoloured fineliners. But it looks rather a dog’s dinner.
Perhaps I should read teh chapter in my Zentangle book about colour before I have another go.
I’m quite impressed with how some of these turned out. I’m no artist but am producing little bits of work that when I return to them months later, I find myself thinking they look quite good. And that’s without the added benefit of the calmness and quiet you get from just sitting doodling for a few minutes.
