New Tangle Binder Cover

Now that I've settled on a standard sized binder to hold my tangle step-by-steps, I wanted a nice cover to show off some of the tangles I've been learning.
So way back on Memorial Day, I put our flag out, watered the flowers, then plopped myself down on the patio loveseat and got to work.  It was a great day!

Here is the binder before adding a cover.  It's really quite plain.
I started by drawing out a pattern with pencil.  I traced around different sized squares.
Then, I backed the paper in black.  Then I sat outside and got to work.
And here it is all finished!  There IS one little square at the bottom that needs something added to it, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it.
And that's all for today.  Until another time, have a happy, creative day!

My Latest Creations

Here are just a few of my latest creations using different tangle patterns that I have been learning.
I think the first one, from April 15th, is my favorite.

I love that I can spend 1/2 hour on a piece, tuck it away for a bit, then finish it later. 
The one below only took 45 minutes and I did it while sitting in my car, waiting for my daughter to come out of confirmation class.
Next, we have an example of the Neuron pattern, created by Beth Snoderly.  It is one of my favorite tangle patterns, and is super easy to draw.  Below, I took some step-by-step photos of my progress.
Just as a reminder, I am NOT a CZT, and Zentangle is a registered trademark, its creators are Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. 

Well, that's all for today. Until another time, have a happy, creative day!

Happy Independance Day!

Here is a picture from an old post.  I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend, no matter where you are or what you are doing!
And here is a cool little Pepsi coaster I purchased from my Uncle at his Junk Sale Booth earlier this summer.

And my red, white, and blue shelf! 
Well, that's all for today!  Have a great weekend everyone!
