Maria decided that this tapestry pillow she made twenty-something years ago needed a Zentangle makeover.
Using a black Sakura IDenti®-pen and a grey Fabrico® dual tip marker, she tangled away . . .
Here's a close-up:
One of our favorite Zentangle themes is that "Everyone is an artist." When you are an artist you can do things differently and people will admiringly explain it to themselves with, "Oh, that's OK, she's an artist!"
For example, if you look at that second picture above, you will notice that our couch cushion is patched. It's a wonderful couch and a comfortable couch. It's also an old couch. When a cushion was stained, we didn't want to get a new couch so Maria "fixed" it with a piece of tapestry.
Everyone who visits thinks it's a great idea and quite okay because, after all, we're artists and artists do that sort of thing.
And with Zentangle's method, you also have a justification (if you need it) for all sorts of creative inventiveness, like patching your couch cushion or bringing life to a tired old pillow, because after all, you are an artist!
