I am completely addicted to Zentangles, I find them very therapeutic, building up all those tiny little patterns to make a bigger picture, as I have come to the end of my first book I thought I would share a couple of my favourite tangles.

This is the last tangle in my book

I have just been given a new book "Time to Tangle with Colour" and have a brand new tangling book to play in, can't wait to get started!

Where have I been???

I can't believe I haven't blogged since April, where has time gone?  I had been busy with my Mum and Dad's 50th Anniversary, arranging a party for them and putting together a 50th Anniversary Scrapbook which was good fun but quite emotional with all the old photographs.  

We had a great holiday in Kefalonia, beautiful island & very hot, had birthdays and was lucky enough to get tickets for the Olympics!

So now it's time to get back to crafting!  I have been taking some inspiration from Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday videos,, one in particular from March using texture paste  and a stencil, Caran D'ache Gouache watercolours and Pan Pastels.  I used a very coarse paste, I think it would have been better with a lighter one.  I filled in the background with the water colour and went over the paste with the pan pastel.  The centre piece is stamped in versa mark with pan pastel over.
