WOYWW!

Here it is! I've been mostly having fun with zentangles this week and beginning a scripture journal which I'm making out of an old copy of Barchester Towers. You can read about that in my previous post, if you're interested! Do you like the roll of toilet paper behind my WOYWW badge? It's handy for blowing my nose AND for blotting my paint brushes. You will also see a scrap of paper that I'm practicing a tangle on and the ever-present headphones! :)
This is my zentangle for the Diva's Challenge for this week. We were to use auras, or extra lines surrounding tangles. It was a lot of fun!
This is a much larger zentangle that I'm just playing with a little at a time. Something to fool around with and then put down for a while, which is a good way for me to do art.
Here's my little scripture journal cover. The label didn't cover the bookcover design, so I turned it sideways. I've pasted a couple of maps in it, but I'm going to do some Bible study before deciding what else I want to put in it.
If you want to visit some other desks from around the world go to Julia's Stamping Ground! Everyone have a great time with your art!

  19. Ah Lisa, I think that yourzentangles are amazing, and the fact that you can pick it up and put it down is an added attraction, for sure. I like the way that the aura is indicated by the extra lines.
