Z is for Zentangle

zentangle 02242015

I came up with this idea over Valentine’s weekend and tucked it away for the letter Z. Oh, the watercolor pencils (Derwent Inktense, finally picked up a set, wonderful things) have been calling me lately and I just find a watercolor background such a nice wind-down at the end of the day. Much like the zentangles. You can’t go wrong with either one, or both!

Changing up things around here a bit for the next alphabet cycle, so hang onto your hat, and tune in tomorrow for more fun and artishness.

    1. Woo, I can’t wait for my set of 72 to arrive. I’m not sending the 24 set back until the new ones come! I don’t want to be without them! Have you ever tried them on fabric, Alisa? I hear they’re permanent?

      1. Yes, I have tried them on fabric. They are beautiful but it takes a lot of practice and work. I bought 100 percent cotton Muslin fabric to work on. It held the most color. Also, use pure aloe Vera gel instead of water to blend them on fabric. Just the clear stuff. Water bleeds- a lot, but that can be pretty too.

          1. You are so welcome. The blocks are what I mostly used. Shaved them down and added water to them and used as paints. The blocks are great as using as watercolors by just wetting your brush and touching them to the block. As you can see- I love Inktense haha. I can’t wait to hear/see what you explore. Happy painting 🙂 oh, and most importantly. Your commitment to create everyday and get it up on your blog is incredible. I’m always in awe of you.

  1. Laura, I have to thank you for this blog post! A few months ago Dorothy had a Zentangle class at her bookshop and I wasn’t able to make it. Your blog post reminded me of it. I looked up community classes and I’ve just signed up to a class on Tuesday. Hopefully, I can get my own Zentangles going and find a new way to use my fountain pens. 🙂
