Some folks call them Zentangles….I’ve called mine “Doodangles”(which you can see in this album).
This past Tuesday, I shared my doodling ideas and fun with our local altered art group…we each had a piece of watercolor paper (18 X 22) and then melted some crayons for focal points onto the paper, then drew designs out from these focal points. This is mine:
After finishing this, I decided to play a bit in photoshop to get some color and pattern variations. I printed them out with my laser printer, and will use them for backgrounds in collages, etc.
Do you remember your days of coloring with crayons?; doodling on notebook covers in school? ; just messing around in spare time with a pencil and scratch pad? No? well- that’s what I used to do when I was young – obviously I still do!
NOTE: If you’d like to see more inspiration on Zentangles, there is a new book out by one of my favorite artists, Beckah Krahula! You can see it HERE.
