Hi every one, thanks for all your lovely comments and welcome new followers, thanks for joining me here.
Today I wanted to share a wee book I've just decorated. I've had this kicking about for a while I can't remember where I picked it up but always thought it was a bit small for sketching in, but I reckon it's just a nice size for my tangles and it fits neatly in my bag along with a pen and pencil, handy for doodling in waiting rooms etc.
It started off life as a boring Kraft covered board book with an aperture the shape of a butterfly in it.
I used gold paint dabber randomly on it to brighten it up in places and some copper foil scraps stuck on the right side of the aperture with Anitas tacky glue then when dry I darkened this a bit with a black alcohol pen to catch the texture. I doodled the word "Zentangle" in black pen
The first page is kraft paper behind the butterfly, so I decorated inside the aperture with some zentangling, though around this shape I can still doodle some more, as it's still kraft paper around it under the front cover.
I finished it off the front cover with some zentangling then decided to add a splash of colour with alcohol pens too, the word "Zentangle" in black was too dark and I didn't like it, so I resued it with Sakura gold shadow pens then highlighted a bit of the tangle patterns with various colours of the same too, though in this photo it looks silver.
I hope you're not fed up with flowers yet. As promised here is another digi sketch. This one is "Sweet peas"
Let me know what you think.
