I tried a few things (above) and then my friend Beth turned me on to Zentangle and the amazing work from some unbelievable artists and instantly... I WAS HOOKED. I've had a busy week since learning more about it and haven't had another chance to play, but I can't wait to.
Oh, the delight when I realized what could be done when I looked outside the box. Beth's words, "The tree can be hair" "The houses, bodies" NOW I GET IT! THANK YOU, BETH!
