 Two tiles I worked on last night. I really like how they came out. Especially the first one. The second had an ooops moment, no mistakes in zentangle®! (certified zentangle teacher)
This is one of Norma Burnell's stamps I colored w/Prismacolored pencils. Not too bad, but probably won't do that again. Too much detail to color.

Thanks for stopping by today.

 Having fun w/ a little bit of color. certified zentangle teacher

 This is one of my creation of a tangle from a rug in my bedroom! I call it Rugz!
 A Hero Arts stamps and saying!
 This is a Z-fold card. Done on Color Me Papers from Paper Wishes. Fun to do.
 This is Shimmer paper. (mylar to be exact. Embossed then ran black Staz-on over it!
 This card and the next are the famous sunburst technique. I love doing this tech. the saying is from my Design Maker, and the papers are from Graphics 45.

 I love how this tangled card came out! Gotta love black and white.

 This card is a techique I saw online. You do all your stamping then take and cut, I did my cutting on my Cameo, much easier! Whatever you want in the cut out design. Then you just layer it back in, I use 3 layers of hvy cardstock.
 Another tangled pennants this time. It was for a swap in my ZIA Yahoo group!
This last one is 11" x 14" to be cut down to atc sizes. I'm doing it for a swap w/ my zentangle sister teachers!
We are doing a 52 card (atc) deck!!! So much fun. Check back to see what I have in store next time. Hopefully not as long tho!

Okay, here I am sooner than I thought I would. Glad to be so busy tho. The first 3 cards, I was on a crayon resist technique. Love, love, love how they came out!  Then  little Versamark with chalks and a stencil of a cute cat!!!  Next, I did a swing card. Haven't done one for a few months or so. First is the front and the the next picture is open!!! It's a big card,  about 5.5 x5.5 in.  Lastly, I just got this doll in the mail today, I order her and one other, by Prima Marketing by Julia Nutting. I paper pieced her dres and headband! It's a tag it is quite large also! She alone is 7.25" So I though it would be great as a collage. I don't know if you see it, but there is a skeleton leaf near the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by again!

The first card I wanted to do some encaustic wax technique. Finished it off w/some Dazzles stickers voila flowers! Number 2 is a Pinterest inspired card to use up scraps!!! Using Spellbinder die Labels One.
Next, I cut this on my Silhouette Cameo and put it ontop of some Graphics 45 papers! Love the effect!
Now since I was on a cutting mood, next came Spellbinder scallop dies. Also for the next one. Last, was inspired by Michelle Zindorf at this Summer Silhouettes – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #607
Hope you've enjoyed taking a look at my newest collections.
