i tangled a bookmark today. It’s white but looks light blue for some reason!
Now I wonder what the best thing to do is: use Mod Podge or a spray fixative! It isn’t the thickest paper card stock.
“Colours of the Rainbow” is this week’s I Am The Diva Challenge , and I couldn’t be happier! I love color. No, you don’t understand- I looooooove color! I love it so much that I started an Instagram hub (group) called @jj_colorful… Do visit. (Also one for Zentangle @heart.tangles )
So, without further delay, here is my entry- it is a bookmark (my first ever) that I made for my very dear friend of 31 years (can that be right?!?!? Yep it is!) in Illinois who always gets my “firsts.” It was her idea that I Google “Zentangle” as I was frustrated and stuck in my creativity – or lack thereof. By far the best Google search of my life!
She even received and even framed my first attempt, which wasn’t an official Zentangle® tile but something entirely different. I forgot to take a photo of it but she sent me one:
Not very Zentangly but I gave it a serious try! And this pitcher was an accident! I simply closed my eyes and made one line. I close the line and started… And in a short time after turning it all ’round to tangle it, the pitcher emerged. It was quite apropos and a good symbol for our friendship.
So, without any further ado, here is my bookmark:
I thought I’d better get this completed and posted today since I leave early Saturday morning for RHODE ISLAND! I’ll be attending and hopefully graduating the CZT20. That’s Certified Zentangle Teacher training number 20. It is a 12 hour drive and complicated due to my disabilities and medical conditions but my friend of 5 years here in Appalachia will act as my assistant. I’m so excited I can’t even sleep more than 5-6 hours a night!
