Tangle of the Week: Partay

celebration at the sculpture garden, Minneapolis
This tangle aptly describes the fun time we had in Minneapolis-St. Paul. PARTAY is a pattern created by Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) Margaret Bremner, who lives in Canada. You can find her fun and easy instructions to PARTAY on her blog called enthusiasticartist.

homemade spray paint
My PARTAY pattern is drawn with glitter ink in my junque journal (appropriate pens for the occasion!)  But first I sprayed the background with my own mixture of water and acrylics.  Then I glued down a photo taken of the sculpture garden across from the Walker Art Museum.

Interested in making your own spray paints?  Check out this tutorial on YouTube by Moira Robertson; this was a task she set down before us, part of our 30 Day Craft Cleanse.  Talk about using materials you have at home!

What's your favorite word, beginning with an P?
Find out how other "students" answered that question at Ms. Jenny's AlphabeThursday class.

I had to wait to read your post until the kids ate their lunch. I was trying to figure out what a cold spray had to do with your journal page and the letter P. That is a great idea!
