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, printed it 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.
