  5. So, What is Zentangle?

    October 28, 2012 by Administrator

    Zentangle® is a method and  process of developing art while relaxing your mind.  Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas developed Zentangle.  You can find out more about their story by viewing Zentangle.com. I met Rick and Maria during the Certified Zentangle Teacher training I attended in September of this year.  Rick and Maria were very knowledgeable, professional and  genuine in their teaching.

    Over the last year, I have found that Zentangle has added to my life greatly.

    1. Zentangle is a simple inexpensive, quick and portable method of creating art.

    2. Zentangle allows me as the artist to relax, relieve stress and take my mind off of the problems of life.

    3. Learning and sharing Zentangle has allowed me to meet many great new people both through social media and in my community.

    4. Using Zentangle techniques combined with other art forms- such as painting, glass engraving, drawing, fabric art, etc, -has greatly enhanced and improved the art I create.

    5.  Zentangle gives me the great feeling of accomplishment and success.

    6.  My need create and to share the gift of Zentangle with others has re-energized my life.

    Yes,  Zentangle is just that great…. Give it a try!

     

    Zentangle®  is a hot new national creative craze. Wantabe artists are finding this craze fun and relaxing. Tanglers, as Zentangle artists call themselves, use this technique to create one-of-a-kind artistic works.

    The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.

    Zentangle is a structured way of creating small, normally about 3” x 3”, black and white works of art using a fine line inking pen.  The supplies required are limited and very inexpensive.  Once the Zentangle technique is learned it may be applied to many other artistic or crafting projects including drawing, painting and scrap booking.The most important part of Zentangle is the creative process.  While using repeated simple marks to create very complex designs your mind and body is able to de-stress and relax. The beautiful finished product also does great things for the tanglers confidence and self esteem.  A student doesn’t have to worry if they can’t draw. The Zentangle step by step technique is for everyone, no matter the artistic talent or lack thereof.

    Classes include the Zentangle process, materials and basic “tangles”. Only one class will allow you to enjoy the basics this great hobby.

    Create something new everyday…or

    as often as you can.

    Creativity is great for the mind and

    the soul. If it is a painting, a craft, a

    doodle or a home fix-up project -

    share, post or display what you do.

     

    Brag about your project and inspire

    others to create something!

    Painting angels for Christmas  cards and ornaments using enamel paints on frosted glass bulbs  (from Hobby Lobby).

    Using a non-traditional color scheme is fun. I love the purple and gold combination.

     


  9. Important info for bargain hunters…..

    May 28, 2011 by Administrator

    If you live in Lower Michigan I have a couple of bargain hunting tips for you!

     

    The first one is the O’Leary paint store in Lansing, Michigan, 300 East Oakland. All year in the back room of this main store location there is a bargain barn that is open to the public.  The bargain barn carries closeout art, scrap booking and craft supplies at great prices.

    And better yet, O’Leary’s has its annual warehouse sale on June 10, 2011 – 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM at the Oakland Street Store. Last year there was a line at 7:30 AM  waiting out side the store.  I have attended this annual sale every year for at least 5 years.  There are many wonderful bargains but you must come early because there are limited quantities of everything. For more info call O’Leary’s at 517 487-2066.

    For more feel good bargain hunting in Lansing you must check out the Creation Station, 200 Museum Drive. The Creation Station is a non-profit volunteer group which takes donation of items from industry and individuals to be used by crafters, artist, teachers, scouts, churches and any other creative types. “A destination for people with imagination, a community outlet to reduce, reuse and recycle. ”

    Shopping at the Creation Station you are getting great bargains and at the same time keeping good usable items out of the landfill.  I have routinely found many wonderful items at the Creation Station including beads, quilting fabric, yarns, paints and painting surfaces.  Most items are priced $5 or $6 for a grocery bag full.  Sadly the Creation Station is only open on Thursdays and Saturdays.  It is staffed by volunteers so call ahead to double check the hours, 517 371-2451.

    I am looking for an architectural salvage store in Lower Michigan – Let me know if you have found one! I would think that would be a great place to find painting surfaces.

    I would love to hear from you. Please post your favorite bargain hunting locations here.

    Happy bargain hunting!
