First, is when to ink in your outside frame. I pencil mine lightly, and once I have finished my work, then decide whether I want to ink it or not. that approach gave me the freedom to draw one of these beads extending past the outline.
Welcome to Tangled Thursday. A few of my local and online friends have joined me in an occasional Zentangle challenge. We'll take turns choosing a theme and them post our drawings in about 2 weeks time. All are welcome to join in the fun. If you are new to Zentangles, then visit the website for a complete explanation and all sorts of online resources. I'm also a big fan of TanglePatterns.com.
In answer to my friend Lisa, if you are happy with your work, then yes, you are doing it right.
If you are just starting and are looking for a book, I recommend Zentangle Basics by Suzanne McNeill ISBN 978-1-57421-327-0. It's a very affordable book and will introduce you to 24 tangles. This is the book that started me on this journey. I also recommend that you take a class if you are lucky enough to have a CZT Certified Zentangle Teacher nearby. for a list of teachers, visit Zentangle.com
I have added Mr. Linky again this week and invite you to add a link to your Zentangles, a new post or one of your favorites. I'd love to view your work.
