Today's piece is on a 2" x 3.25" rectangle of ordinary Papertrey white card stock. The sentiment is incorporated in the design, although my hubs thought it said, "HANK YOU" because the "T" doesn't stand out quite as well as it should.
It's pretty clear I'm a beginner at this, but it's so much fun I can see myself doing this for years. The meditative quality of it appeals to me as I've been trying to be more mindful anyway. When zentangling, time sort of stops. I just keep adding and tinkering until I get something that seems sort of finished. It's an organic, unstructured process full of imperfections that flows smoothly as long as you don't think about it too much.
If you're like me and are an over-thinker with some obsessive, perfectionist tendencies that get in the way of relaxing and having fun, this is an excellent antidote!
And why not get started with Audrie's challenge at Splitcoast?
Just a thought.
