Learning Curve

Cookie received a woodburning tool kit in July, just after she had gotten into Zentangle. She used Zentangle's method to learn the techniques of her new medium. Here are some pictures she sent.



Thanks for sending those images, Cookie!

Zentangle's approach to creating art provides a great way to learn new tools and media.

I love the richness of the tangles in brown. I've never done wood burning, but this makes me want to have a go at it. Thanks for the inspiration, Cookie.

Oh my, this is beautiful. I have wood burning tools and never thought to do that. Now that gives me an idea.

This is GREAT! What another wonderful lesson of "anything is possible, one stroke at a time" First gourds, now other wooden articles. Guess I should drag out my old wood burning tools and see what unexpected results unfold. (I used to burn my name in Olde English letters in the handles of all my hockey sticks)

WTG Cookie! Thanks for sharing these - I've woodburned for a while but never really did any drawing with an ink pen. When I first discovered Zentangle my first ones on pen and paper were not that great - wasn't sure I could do it - but the ones woodburned turned out really well - that gave me enough hope to keep at it and that I could eventually learn to draw Zentangles with pen and paper. Now I like doing them both ways but still partial to woodburning partly because I'm more comfortable working on 3-D surfaces. Guess I'm just weird as I find flat paper to be a bigger challenge for me. LOL

Suggest soap carving to Rick... easier on the chisel and the slips can always be washed away...
