I'm so looking forward to a class/workshop being given towards the end of this month by a certified zentangle teacher. So far I've just been winging it looking at books and looking at examples on the web. I also look forward to learning about proper shading and eye movement within the tangles.
In the meantime, I'm just playing to see what I can do on my own :-)
While at the hospital Wednesday sitting with hubby, I tried the traditional method of frame/border and string. This is what I ended up with.
Now this morning I thought I would try working one without any confines of a string or border. I wanted to see how it might end up starting in the center and working out around the first pattern put down. As of right now, I think I prefer this over the border and string method but that might change once I take the class. I really don't know what I'm doing at this point but feel a sense of freedom with this method over the other.
