Today I am posting a Zentangle creation that I made. Yes, I know, this is a new beginning for me too, because I have never really done much with Zentangle. As many of you know the zen master in our family is Wayne. But he is an excellent teacher and has shown me the basics. I used the new open heart stencil (LG747) and started by tracing the stencil on white cardstock with a 005 micron pen by Sakura. Then I filled in the outer ruffle area with an 05 micron pen. After I finished the inner patterns with an 01 pen I colored and shaded with Prisma colored pencils. The thank you stencil (LJ894) was paste-embossed with the matte black embossing paste (DMBP) and added as an embellishment.
