Zentangle Tree

I was shopping at Jo Ann's yesterday, when I saw this tree stencil. I fell in Love with this stencil at first sight and knew that I had to Zentangle that tree. So here it is. I know that I am going to use this tree stencil on many, many projects. My mind is just full of ideas on how I can use this tree stencil!

This is a mixed media project that I worked on today.
I am very new to Art journaling. This was not art with a purpose.
It was just a Fun afternoon in my Studio. I don't have a lot of supplies, because I am just starting out.
I used a piece of paper. First I put some gesso on my paper, after it was dry I painted a wash of aqua colored paint.
I used aqua because I like the color. Then I put some Walnut Ink antiquing solution at the top of the page. I squirted it with
water and let it drip down the page. I took a piece of something with circles in it. Just a piece of rubbish really, and used it as a stencil. I dabbed gold acrylic paint on the circle stencil. Then I tore decorative papers, glued them to my project with mod podge. I went over the papers with an aqua paint wash. Then I took a Fleur de lis stencil and drew the fleur de lis onto the paper. I painted the fleur de lis with aqua, and metallic peridot acrylic paint. I finished by putting a metal embellishment that has the word journey on it. that was it. my Fun afternoon in my studio.

Knitting can be Dangerous

I tripped over my knitting today and got my knitting stuck into my foot.
The knitting needle went in 2 inches.


Today's Zendala.
