Sometimes I need to clear my head and try not to think of anything at the moment. This is why adult coloring books are so popular. The new Zentangle drawing process is another way of just enjoying drawing nothing in particular and creating something spectacular in the process.
I often open my software program and choose a tool or two and just start doodling. Adding to the shapes by using the wreathmaker (my favorite) tool and using the clone tool can start to create something special. Using the other functions of flipping, rotating, re-sizing, and changing the background color all adds to the design. Sometimes I am so satisfied with the doodling that I actually stop and stitch it out to use in a project down the road. If I don’t have time to stitch it, I can always export the image and print it onto fabric to sew later.
What is your favorite tool and what experimenting have you done? The possibilities are endless.
