Back to the Savannah Series. This particular collage incorporates photography as well as zentangle technique. It's all coming together!

French Daydreams Note Card

OK. So I decided to incorporate a rubber stamp in this note card as well. In truth, it's probably not my favorite note card, but, it has a certain charm.

Cupcake Note Card

But, of course I made note cards last week. I had a great time making this one. Upon checking out at Michael's a few days prior to its creation, I had to go past the $1.00 bins on my way to the check out counters. Those bins are irresistible! I found cupcake rubber stamps! I bought one for myself and one for my eight-year-old niece, Georgia. 

As you can see, I made it the focal point for this very fun "scrap collage" which has all things in it. I wonder who the unsuspecting recipient of this card will be! :D

Tangy Zoodles in Color

You've probably noticed that color has been creeping into my Tangy Zoodles and last week's works are almost all in color. I haven't yet decided if I like the color or black and white better, but it's all fun!

Remember, if you're interested in pursuing the art of zentangle yourself, here's the book I recommend: One Zentangle A Day

Marble Steps

And yet another new addition to the Savannah Series. Graceful, curved steps is such a noteworthy architectural feature in this city.

Photos Taken In Savannah

The following are photos from one of my most recent "hikes" around the city. I hope you enjoy!

Sea Critters!

I've added two more collages to my Seashore Series. I hope you enjoy. Notice the use of zentangle design in these pieces. It's taken over my life! :-D

New Collaged Note Cards

I try to make a note card every day; not just because I need note cards, but because it's a perfect studio warm up as well. It gets me into my right mind and thinking about collage design.

Tangy Zoodles

I'm officially changing the name of my version of Zentangles to Tangy Zoodles since they are now starting to diverge from the traditional zentangle designs. These are the designs I've most recently created; note that they are starting to include some color!
