The Experiments-Getting My Feet Wet

Here are some tangles that I have executed in my effort to develop a  style that is my own.  I love some, and others are just ok.

I found this tangle demonstrated on a youTube by I'm not sure what it is called.  The next pic also came from there.

I have several others I will share later, that show more progress.  I find this whole process very relaxing, and a great tranquilizer.

In this Beginning God Created zenTangles

This is the first of what I hope to be many tangled web weavings.  I just found this art form while researching one of my favorite pass times Stamping.  Outlines Rubber Stamps are a favorite of mine, and they had some examples on their website.  Obviously I had to research this, but put it off for other Important pursuits, such as money.  I then was watching a webisode on Paperwishes in which they featured, you guessed it, Zentangles.  Well that sold me, I bought a kit from them.  I have been tangling ever since.  I am sharing some of the creations I have made using the Outlines Rubber Stamps, and these feature a couple of my own creations.  I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed creating them.

The bell, the tree and the angel tangles used in the Christmas Card are tangles that I invented for this use.  I have not yet made a recipe card for these, but experience people will easily figure these out.  Within the next few weeks I will do the recipes, and post them here.

I saw this brilliant challange at Crafty Cardmakers that fits just great with this post, so I decided to join them in the challenge
