Zentangle's I created between the weeks of 3/24-4/14

Dear Readers:
I have been behind on posting my Zentangles. A few of the Zentangles are created with templates. I created a birthday card for my mother in blue pen from scratch. I did not use a template. I sketched out in pencil first then went over it in blue pen. I also created a blue Easter card for my mother that has a cross on it. Did that from scratch no template just pencil and then changed it to blue ink. Hope you enjoy viewing.

 Created free hand the birthday card above for my mother's birthday April 14.
 The piece above was created with Zentangle stencil that 
I borrowed from the past zentangle class I had taken. I finally filled it in.
 The template for the above picture can be found on this website

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.

Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
