WOYWW - A tangle with zentangle

Hello everyone and welcome,

Well.... quite a lot of crafty time at my desk last week as it was half term and it rained a lot too! It must have been the quickest week in history!
 
 
Hmmm... I wasn't supposed to be in this picture but hubby decided to creep up on me. Here's the proper one...
 
 
I went back to Hobby craft and bought the laser cut snowflakes...
 
 
I inked them with DI inks faded jeans and tumbled glass, added silver ribbon, more snowflakes and a sentiment....
 
 
 
 
I just LOVE snowflakes...
 
On my desk you can see my Junk Journal. I was given a zentangle magazine and I decided to have a go! I also used papers from my recent Gelli Plate play.
 
 
 
 
 
This is only one half of the planned page but I haven't finished it yet!   I really enjoyed doodling my dangles (pardon the expression) ... or dangling my doodles LOL but if you decide to have a go... a piece of advice.. rest your eyes regularly, take a break, or as sure as your doodles will be a dangling - you'll end up with eyes like this. They should come with a HEALTH WARNING!!!
 
Sorry about the photo heavy post.   Have a happy week!!!

  5. Nice to meet you Lynda and wow you are seeing LLJ give her a big hug from Yoda and I. Yoda is tucked up in bed in the photo I have just added again, I don't know what happened to the last shot because it was there when I posted it. Thanks for letting me know. He is under the doona and I had to pull it back to find him.

    I so love those snowflakes it makes me giggle I have been playing with these same colors over the last few weeks with a snowflakes die and went on the hunt for some embossing powder to match the ink as they don't make a distress embossing powder in tumbled glass. I thought the photo of the cross eyed child was funny.

    Have a great week and thanks again.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 1

  10. I love what you've done with those die cuts! I didn't like the look of the very detailed dies themselves but you've got me tempted now ;-) #44
