Any Surface Will Do


While reading comments about Barb's beautiful Zentangle gourd, I noticed our sugar and creamer on our kitchen table.

Maria found this container when we needed a sugar bowl but it didn't have a cover. She walked down to Aubuchon's (our local hardware store) and bought a cork and a wood drawer pull. She found a screw and a washer and there you have it - with a little help from a Pigma 01 pen of course.

 

Our creamer is decorated with one of those foam spacers that come in a bulk DVD container. Since no surface is safe, it soon sported a Zentangle and now sits happily on our non-dairy creamer.

 

You can create a Zentangle on just about anything using materials, tools and skills you have right now. Every creation need not be a grand affair. Often, getting ready to create can crowd out actually creating. Look around you. There's probably something within reach right now that is just waiting to get "tangled." Jump in - no fear!

(But boy, that gourd really is beautiful, isn't it.)

My doodly friends are now brimming with ideas for things to tangle. So joyfully infectious!

I bet there are a lot of us "tangler's" out there now, searching around for the next surface to create a piece of art!
