Zentangle

We had a list of suggested topics to blog about at En liten butik this month and one of them were doodling. I love stamping, really love! Why? Because the result is perfect every time (well, at least in theory… I do mess up occationally… I’ve learned to hide it ;). I do not like to doodle, write or draw. Why? Because I’m never really happy with the result. It always looks messy… Well I thought that I really should give it a chance and rememberd some great zentangle I’ve seen on pinterest. I searched for zentangle patterns and then I started drawing with a pencil, filled it in with a black pen and colored with distress markers. Guess what? I’m happy! It’s not perfect in any way but in the end it looks kind of cool.

I just stamped a sentiment and embossed it in gold. No decorations at all. Lovely! It took me a whole day but I’m glad I did it. I might even do it again :) Do look at pinterest for some awesome zentangle drawings. WOW! Some people got mad skills! And patience. Lots and lots of patience…

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
