Just Doodling.....

Hello everyone: Some time ago, while browsing Pinterest, I discover the art of ZENTANGLE, which takes doodling to a whole new lebel. I was intrigued by the intricate designs on this awesome images and, as it often happens with something that tickle my curiosity, I went and Google'd it only to find a ton of blogs dedicated to this ultimate form of Doodling. I went ahead and bought a book, ZENTANGLE BASICS, which is really super cool.
In spite of what might appear as very complicated doodling, it's quite relaxing and surprisingly easy to do so, here is a card that was inspired by several challenges that I will link to at the end of this post.

This flower is from a stamp set by "The Cat's Meow" called "Beautiful Spring", I chose it because of the nice space provided by the petals, here is a picture of it before I started doodling on it.

Quite a change, don't you think? I went to my book to look for some designs and I just doodled away. I decided to make the center of the flower more vivid, I thought that by going with the black pen on this tiny strands would make them disappear, I really like the way it looks like this.

Here is a close up of this Zentangled flower.

I hope you can still see each little petal.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

Both the sentiment and the Hot Air Balloon are from an old Flourishes set called "Lots of Thoughts"

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.

Wow you're really good at that! Keep it up! Start a journal book for these while you're stuck watching sports when Mario's on vacation! Genius right!

LeAnne said...

Very cool, Maria! I have seen this done before but never attempted it myself....I think you must have a lot more patience than I d, LOL!

Wow Maria I love how you have done this especially with the bright orange part in the middle. Really knocks its out there. I cant believe I have this stamp, finally we share a stamp but could never do this. I tried zen..... A few times and it just never works for me. Lucky you nailed it cause this is perfect.

Your card is great. It's a cool idea to "fill" a stamped image with your zentangle patterns. Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmakers this week.
