Finally got my second Chalk Paint chair sanded and out on the deck. This was an old chair I have had around forever. I picked the "sunbrella" fabric first and had the cushions made so I could match the paint to the fabric. I found the little carpenters bench at the antique store and painted it to match as a foot stool or a little extra seating.
Now I'm ready for a little Zen time……..
…and speaking of Zen time, here is a monotype I made last week in class as a demo for hand printing. I just put some blocks of color on the plate and when is was dry spent a little time over the next few days creating a colorful Zentangle.

Playing with a new tangle Rixty. It is lots of fun to just start and let this one move and grow.
One day last fall I decided to print my palette plate at the end of the day. Finally got around to cutting the print into pieces and playing with these two.
This a 3.5" Zentangle paper tile. I started with Rixty in the middle and then just filled it up. I think I found a new mantra, "filler up, filler up, filler up…."
Another "filler up" page in my 5" x 5" Handbook. I really enjoy how these pages turn out but believe me there are points in the process where I think, "Yikes! where do I go from here?" There lays the challenge and the fun.

This page was done at our last ZenFriends meeting. Sharla showed us how to play with this design based on the tangle N'Zeppel. It is so relaxing and fun to sit with these friends and just play. Thanks ladies!

Being the only tangler in the group I did some Zentangle trees. Looks a little greyed out in the photo…maybe it's going to snow!
This is the card I received from Annie! A beautiful and very fun water color. All the cards were great, not a bad one in the bunch which makes us all winners!
Happy Holidays to all!
