A is for Autographs!

So what is something you can do in the Zentangle world with Autographs? Let me show you…

You get some big name person to autograph a Zentangle tile…or whatever you have with you when you happen to meet up with them right?


Then you outline the autograph…..


Then you start to Zentangle around the Autograph using the dips and curves for the places you stop and start different Zentangle patterns….


Then you fill up the rest of the tile with Zentangle patterns!


How fun is that?!



Memory Box/Poppystamps Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone!

I know it has been a little while since I have posted here but I am using this Blog Hop as an opportunity to change that fact and am letting you all know that I am going to be switching up my blog to be a more personal one, including not only my Zentangle art, classes and information but now I plan on sharing all of my other papercrafting endeavors as well as more personal stuff about my life as a mom and wife and woman. I hope you enjoy the upcoming changes.

Let’s start with this Blog Hop that I am participating in as a member of the Memory Box Design Team. Dave Brethauer, the owner of Memory Box and Poppystamps has a new venture called Birch Press Design featuring letterpress, laser cut and printed card designs as well as beautiful products for your home. What is even better…. they are selecting winners of prizes for those who comment on our blogposts…so make sure to leave a comment…you have until Dec. 10th to comment to be entered for the prizes!

So with this joint Blog Hop between the Memory Box and Poppystamps Design Teams we are showcasing the products and using them to make Holiday gift Tags and Treats! If you have been hopping along with us today you may have arrived here from MICHELLE HENDERSON’S Blog. What fun! I made a gift tag that can be used for any winter themed party, I do hope you like it!

For this tag I used a medium blue shimmer cardstock as my background color then some holographic paper to cut out the dies in which really made them pop! I used the Frosty Border Die and the Hanging Ornaments Die. I edged the top and bottom of the blue cardstock piece with Glitter tape then I cut the Frosty Border in two pieces and snipped a little extra piece off and used the 2 separated pieces for the top and bottom of my tag. I ‘hung’ the Hanging Ornaments from the top piece of the border then attached the entire piece to a larger silver piece of cardstock. I added a ribbon on the top of the tag and Voila…a beautiful tag perfect for adding to any large box or bottle of wine!

Ok now that you have seen what I have created for the hop….make sure to leave a comment on my blog to be entered for the prize (today’s prize is a tea towel from Birch Press Design – winners choice) then hop onto the next stop at Rudlis / Irena Kowalczyk’s page.
