Zentangle PaperArtsy Mandala

Happy Friday! How is your week going? I’m over on the Topflight Stamps blog today.

I don’t know about you, but things are getting  a little crazy here at home with the kids, homeschooling, housework and all the other things that come with being in the house too long. I was able to escape some of the craziness and make this mandala card using PaperArtsy ETS 23 set.

I love this set as it goes with just about any type of background and you can play around with adding white gel pen and black for a little Zentangle look. You can just play with the image and add all kinds of fun designs.

I started out playing with this background I had made with left over paint on my craft mat. I didn’t just want to toss it out, so instead took a piece of cardstock and added the colors to it.

I started by stamping the image in Black Archival ink in my MISTI to ensure dark coverage. I then added the sentiment from the PaperArtsy JOFY 73 set and started playing around with my white gel pen and adding circles and lines.

Once I was happy with all my designs, I took a ruler and added some lines on the side of the card and colored those in with a design as well. It was so fun to lay around with this and very relaxing. FYI – if you are having trouble with your gel pen, a trick I learned from Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker, is to go slow.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play and create something. Have a wonderful weekend!
