I'm playing SNAP with Helena today, as I too am showing my results from trying out a new-to-me craft. Yesterday I was on a 'Zentangle with Watercolours' course in Marlborough. I'd wanted to try my hand at Zentangles for ages - another one of those things I kept saying I wanted to do but never found the time to get my act together, and the watercolour aspect seemed to add that little bit extra so I signed myself up for the course.
Here's the results:
A small sample to start with, just copying the Zentangle patterns that were drawn on the whiteboard ....
Next, we tried out first Zentangle picture ....
.... and then we tried another one where we added the watercolour paint to the design (which hasn't photographed properly for some reason).
After lunch we had the rest of the time to work on our own picture. I opted for a sunflower but decided against adding the colours - I much prefer the black and white designs.
The only thing I didn't like about the course was that, although there were a few examples of the various patterns to copy, for the most part we were left to make up our own Zentangle patterns ourselves. I had a look online last night and have printed out some sample patterns to practice .... I'm hooked on Zentangles now, it's another cheap, fun way to relax.
