I've been struggling with these pages in my art journal for at least a week now. I really want to like Zentangle and I DO like it. When other people do it! Me doing it...notsomuch. I find it very frustrating. So i've decided I will sit back and enjoy the Tangles that others do and do what makes ME happy on my art journey. Because if you're not happy doing something, what's the point in doing it at all? Especially art, which is supposed to bring us joy and happiness.
Once I finally got the Zentangle tree on the right side done, the rest of this piece came together like a breeze! I splooched and slotched ink and paint, using various lids and even a pencil eraser for the blue dots! I used Dyan's eyelash lady, a couple of caterpillars for her unibrow eyebrows (a la Frida Kahlo!) and a Zentangled stamp of Dyan's for her hat/hair. That's how I like Zentangles! When someone else designs them and makes them into a stamp for me to use! Used a few word stamps that are important reminders for me. And when I cut out the "I am perfect just the way i am", they fell on my table just how I put them on the page. I thought it was appropriate. Just the way I am, I am perfect.
