Just completed two class of Zentangle with Sharla Hicks at Soft Expressions. She is a great teacher and truly an artist. If you would like to get into it, Sharla will be doing the beginning class again. http://www.softexpressions.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CQMEASE&Product_Code=001&Category_Code=
So why Zentangle when you have so many quilt project and work projects going on? Basically its a form of meditation for me. It allows me to focus on one thing, which I don't do very often. It opens my creative synapses. The pieces I have done so far are very small so you can complete them in a sitting. I just love how each design takes you somewhere new.
The class was two days with a week in between. We had 7 very creative people in the class and it was fun seeing how different people have a naturally different interpretation of what was presented.
So here are the pieces I made during and after the class. Remember these are only 3.5'
I have a Zentangle Flickr group if you would like to see the before and after samples.
I think my next class needs to be a photography class ;] but all in time....
Hope you all get to sew this weekend!
