Hi friends! Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share a little Pinterest roundup of things you can use your Zentangle skills on! I thought this would fit in well with the start of our new Zentangle for Beginners series, and thought maybe some project inspirations were in order so you’d have an idea of how to apply your new Zentangle skill set. So let’s get into it! As always, click on the pictures to be taken to their sources, enjoy!
Grab a marker and turn a blank pair of shoes into your canvas – literally! You can see the full instructions by clicking the picture!
There’s many ways to incorporate doodles into your own jewelry. The following tutorial uses Shrinky Dink paper to create doodle hearts that make up this cute bracelet. You can see the full instructions by clicking the picture.
The following project ideas are from Etsy shops, and while the actual items in the photos are already sold, you can probably find something similar by visiting the artist’s store, or just use these pictures as inspiration for your own works. You can click on the links to visit the Etsy stores.
Doodling on a blank stepping stone creates a way to add some of your art to your backyard!
A great way to apply your doodle art is to use it to say hello to others! Make your own cards using your desgins!
Mixed Media Art
An of course, my favorite way to use doodling is to mix it into your other artworks! I’m starting to incorporate my doodles into my other art media and I’m loving the way the fine linework and abstract shapes can contrast the fluid paint and other details in an artwork. It can really open the doors to creating artworks are your own unique style.
So that’s all for now guys! Leave me a comment letting me know how you like to (or are planning to) use doodling in your own works, and till next time, keep creating!
