Zeggtangle (is that Zentangle with a cold??? bad yolk...)
In anticipation of all that Spring brings, here are a few eggcellent eggzamples of what one can do with a bit of zenthusiasm . . . (OK, I promise, no more bad jokes.)
The first is my entry in the Diva's challenge #18. I wanted the egg to appear and disappear at the same time . . . just for fun. The background of the egg shape is done in the Wm Morris style we showed on our blog a few weeks ago. By blackening in the background, then going back in with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen . . . just filling in with delightful little deliberate dots of white to lighten the heaviness of the black, but really, because it's so much fun to do.
These real eggs were done a few years back by Molly, Jean Moroski, CZT, and me. We used Microns, but you must be careful not to smudge them as they take a while to dry (unlike the same pen on paper).
We feel honored to have received this beautiful Easter Card in the mail yesterday from Mickey and Howard Weitsen, both CZTs from beautiful New Orleans. (Mickey drew the egg.) Thanks guys for sending this.
