Here are my first attempts to designing a Zentangle art piece called "Dingbatz". This is an ornamental design used in the type industry. They can be put at the end of letters or greeting cards, etc. They basically are a design you can add to other art you create. This has been designed by Maria Thomas from Zentangle. She creates these in some of her illustrations and designs. You fill them spaces with Zentangle tangles or your own tangles.
This is a lid to a jewelry box I am painting. The painting and antiquing is completed on the top of the lid. Next I will be painting to rest of the outer part of the box to make it look like burled wood. The inside will be painted, decoupaged and adding some velveteen to the bottom. Hopefully, I will finish this project soon. I will post as the project progresses. Comments welcomed.
6" x 3" Multi Media paper. Background created with Distress Oxide Pigments. Sea drawings was drawn with black micron pen. Colored with prismacolor pencils and pastel pencils. The pastel pencils worked easier than the prismacolor pencils. The pigment did not seem to like the wax in the prismacolor pencil. However, the pastel pencils took to the distress oxide pigment easily.
I will be teaching these designs at Insight Awareness. It will be a weekend event, not sure what day I will be teaching this project as yet. The event is August 11 - 13, 2017. Contact me if you are interested.
I belong to Mosaic which is a Zentangle app used for CZT's to share, appreciate and enjoy Zentangle art. We can upload our tiles and share them with other CZT's around the world to appreciate and get inspiration. One aspect on the app is called Tangles, Tips, & Techniques and can be used as a wonderful learning tool and inspiration. A few nights ago I worked these tiles as a practice of the pattern Crescent Moon. Rick Roberts shared this video on Kitchen Table Tangle called Crescent Moon Revisited. Below find the other two tiles I did using only Crescent Moon tangle.
This last tile is our newest 3Z tiles, in tan, white or black.
