My October - December 2013 Zentangle Designs

While I sit at work half an hour before I am due to be there or at breaks and meal times and during the hour I am waiting for TABE test students to take their tests at work. I sit and be creative.

I use bic or gel pens depending on my mood. I find it very relaxing and usually get lost in time.  Below each picture is where you can find the template online and print it off for yourself. I have been really busy preparing for craft shows and making things for people that the zentangle doodling have been put on hold. Maybe I will do more after the new year.

 The above picture of a turkey is made out of toilet paper and paper towel rolls. I painted the rolls first then when they dried I cut the rolls up. As for the center body I used manila file folders to roll up 2 separate circles until they bigger then a silver dollar. Then I pushed each of them out to make…
