A Purse And . . .

Rose Crawford, CZT [email] writes:
Hi Rick and Maria!

I've attached a photo to share a paper pillow purse that I put together to show how Zentangle patterns mix so well with other paper crafting projects.

Be aware though, before viewing the photo, that this project is full of the kind of mistakes that some paper crafters refer to as "happy accidents." While my pillow purse didn't turn out how I expected it to, it definitely reinforced a lesson about moving forward from the present moment.

Here's a link to the blog post that includes a few more close-up photos of this project.


Thanks for sharing that with everyone, Rose!

And . . .
Here's a picture of Chico News' Zentangle inspired newspaper vending machine in place.

The tangled purse is a work of art... and made from ALL paper ('cept the ribbon)!! Great job, Rose, and nicely explained on your blog. Thanks!
