A New String Idea

Happy New Year!

Have you challenged yourself to try something new this year? Birdie and I are taking a create-365 challenge where we are challenging ourselves to create something every day. The advice was to use theme that you wouldn't get bored with, so I chose flowers. I looked around at the art I created last year and at least half of it has flowers in it.  Birdie chose cooking and music (over-achiever) and is challenging herself to create a new recipe every day and compose a piece of music every month or so. In order to not clutter up this blog, we created a new one, CreateX2.

Yesterday, I wanted to try something different, so I decided to use a photo of a rose as my string. I cut out a very clear picture from a gardening catalog of a yellow rose and tangled on it.  This is a very fun technique. You do traditional Zentangle using only black ink, but end up with a beautiful colorful ZIA and it couldn't be easier. No drawing or painting skill required.

This is a really fun technique. I hope you will try it.


  1. Wow! I thought that this was a zentangled scarf, artistically folded, at first! Great idea!!!!!


Your comments brighten my day. Thanks.
