Zendala zendala!

You've seen me do zentangle inchies about a month ago, but yesterday I tried my hand at zendalas. A Zendala is a mandala, meaning a circle you fill up with different designs, in zentangle style.

If you follow me on Twitter, you will know that every Thursday night, or Friday morning for me, at 7 pm. US central time or 1 am for me, I go over to the Artistic Biker's Usteam show. He plays in his Art Journal while a bunch of us sit in the chatroom and watch, ask questions, but, to be honest, we mostly talk amongst ourselves about art journaling, techniques and stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with those subjects. It's a great laugh, and I highly recommend stopping by if you're interested in Art Journaling and hanging out with some fun people.

Last Thursday, the Artistic Biker, or Blade21292 on Twitter, was doing Zendalas. Now, I did not join in during the show, I was far too busy chatting with the people there, but I did do some the next day.

Have a look and tell me what you think!

  2. That's a quick credit card background in black and blue, came out rather nice. Think the zendalas look well on a coloured background.

    Tye's niece was here tonight and she had a look through my book and said I could be 'well famous for doing all this, you are a real artist'. Love her! ;)

  5. Thank you so much AmpleGoddess and Janice!

    The background is a simple 'drag-paint-with-credit-card' background. First black and then blue. Couldn't be easier. ;)

  8. Love how you cut out the zentangles and put them on a background - that is just so cool!
