AlphabeThursday - zen bud

Last night, I found a neat looking tangle called zen bud, designed by Danni O’Brien, a graphic designer from Ann Arbor Michigan.  So I took pen to paper and tried to draw my little rose buds.  


This is Danni’s first pattern on TanglePatterns.com.  At first, I wasn’t happy with my sketches, but now that I look back, I’m completely happy with them.  You can draw them too.  Go and visit her blog and see the steps - real cool!


We reached the end of the alphabet!

 Do you want to read more about what other students in Ms. Matlock’s class thought of, when asked what words begin with the letter Z?  You can go to Jenny’s blog, “…off on my tangent” and choose any blog title. Here's the Zs: AlphabeThursday

I love these- I love how they develop! I've been crocheting little leaves this week- but really they turned out as hearts!

ooo....I got carried away checking out your links and almost forgot to come back!
The tangles/zentangles are very intriguing! I will simply have to try them!

I really enjoy that site. It is so inspirational just glancing at the different designs and then using them to create your own art.

One of the things I picked up from you is keeping a journal. I use it to keep track of my sketches/doodles. I often don't care for them at the time but I still enjoy looking through my book and seeing what I tried!

Second post I've read about artists. So jealous. I'm completely unskilled in this area. That's why I'm an art historian!
Come on over for a visit!

These would be wonderful with a watercolor wash over them

Definitely a neat drawing pattern.


Thanks for participating in Alphabe-Thursday. I've really enjoyed your fresh and zingy posts.

A+
