Here's something new I'm trying.  It's called doodling, Zentangles, Zenspirations, Zendoodles, etc.  On the internet I've seen it called many things.  Zentangles are actual copy written patterns (or tangles) that you can use for doodling.  Just read their rules if you want to use any of their tangles on cards you might want to sell.

I actually started out with this very plain online free image (see next image down) and added some tangles to it!  Isn't it cool!!!  I am sooooo fascinated by this technique!  I just recently found this media online and couldn't wait to try it.  Well, here's my first real attempt!  I did practice a little first on scraps of paper, and just a couple of days ago decided to give it a try.  In the very center of the flower I did add some yellow glitter which is a little hard to see in this photo.   This is a really fun way to decorate your stamped images and/or stencils.  Online there are LOTS of examples of how you can doodle in rubber stamps, stencils, and/or make your own frames to doodle in.  Even the lines on the frames don't have to be straight - they actually look better crooked, so there's no intimidation about doing it.  The cool thing about this is that there really are no mistakes...because no one's really going to notice it.  The ideas are endless and it's sooooo fun and relaxing.  It's really quite easy...If I can do it, anyone can!

This is the free online image I started with.
