Zentangle bookmark 🏡

Zentangle house on a bookmark

bookmarks are a fun way to express your creativity

In this post I showed how I like to make a bunch of backgrounds in advance for tangling.  I decided to make a bookmark for my Bible with one of my premade backgrounds.  One of my favorite ways to tangle is to make quirky landscapes with cute houses.  In this post I Zentangled some funky houses in black and white.  I also have a post on a larger Zentangled piece where I used some stencils for interest.

Pastel chalks add subtle color perfectly

I don't have much experience at all with pastels.  I actually just started playing around with them this year on my Youtube channel.  Traditionally used, chalk pastels on canvas show the texture of the canvas which is a nice effect.  Most of the paper I work with is very smooth for tangling though.  Chalk pastels still work very nicely! I love how they add a soft touch of color to assimilate a blue sky and green grass to my little Zentangled bookmark.  Amazon has some very inexpensive pastels here.

And finally a work in progress photo 

making zentangle bookmarks is fun!
And lastly, I remembered to take a progress picture this time.  I love to see other people's work-in-progress photos myself.  Unfortunately, sometimes I forget because I get in the drawing zone and totally zen out and forget about the blogging part. LOL
