Vicki's Technique Challenge!!

Post by vickstar on Mon Apr 02, 2012 12:23 pm

My challenge to you all this month is a little different! I have a technique challenge where i would like you to try ZENTANGLE!!! Yep, thats right, Zentangle!! Smile I can hear you all saying, 'what the heck is Zentangle' and i did the same thing when it was mentioned in a 'getting to know you' post by one of our new members, but when i googled the term, i realised it was something i have been doing my whole life!!

What is a Zentangle? In a word, a doodle. A structured, contained doodle. If you goolge zentangle images (click HERE for direct link) you will find some amazing works of art!! I used to have sketch books full of 'zentangle' when i was a kid, long before it had a name! lol!!

So now that you have checked out all the awesome examples on google, i would now like you to have a go at this yourself. I have created a whole background for my example and have coloured it in. You can basically do what ever you would like on your layout, a full background, a small contained drawing, coloured or black and white. It is up to you, i would just like to see some Zentangle on your page!! And to be nice, that is ALL i am going to make you do!! Smile

Here is my example (I have written a tutorial on how i made my background and have loaded it to the tips and techniques area HERE!! Smile )


The winner of this challenge will receive some awesome goodies from Burdy's Handmade Embellies!!


All entries must be loaded to the gallery no later than midnight April 30th! Smile

So it has a name! this is an awesome challenge, Vicki! What cool things we can do with an old idea. It's like a crazy quilt on paper. Great LO and I can't imagine how that chair ended up the way it did!

Great layout Vicki.

This challenge will push me way out of my comfort zone, but will give it a try.

Awesome Amanda. I think we will be back to using the gallery again. But Vicki hasn't had a chance to open folders yet. Hopefully she will pop on soon and do so. Im going to jump onto your blog to check out your layout. I have been working on mine- finding doodling very relaxing.

WTG Amanda! You must be a super fast scrapper. I'm constantly impressed by how many layouts you get done for challenges.
Feel free to upload your layouts to the Facebook SBT50 page too if you like : )

Oh ok fair enough about Facebook. Yeah challenges are great for inspiration. But Im still quite slow at getting layouts done. Unless I scrap lift one of my old ones- then Im quicker.

I've just uploaded mine to gallery. The zentangle element is not very bold or funky, but was fun and relaxing, with no idea what was going to end up on page.
