The Queen's Ink Holiday Challenge

The Queen's Ink in Savage MD has put out a challenge.  We are to make an art project using the little houses that they supplied.  It was inspired by a recent issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and Ink About It.  So they want to build a little village of houses to docorate their shop.  This is my little house.  My craft room is just covered with glitter and you probably can see why.  lol

Zentangle class

This past weekend I took a Zentangle class at the Queens Ink in Savage Mills with my friend Mary ( .  It was more than I expected.  I really didn't think I would be able to do it.  They look so complicated.  But like anything else once you break it down into steps it was a lot easier than it looks.  Patti gave great directions on how to do each pattern.  All you had to do is figure out where you wanted to put each pattern on your tile (the 3 1/2" x  3 1/2" inch piece of paper you draw on) I was looking at the site and they actually sell a 20 sided numbered die that corresponds to a card with 20 patterns on it so if you get stuck all you have to do is roll the die.  lol  Maybe I need to look into that some more.  I tried adding color to one but I think I like the black and white ones better.
