Up North Play

Zentangle tile packets
Metallic Jewels
This past weekend was the 4th of July weekend and I was invited up north by my sister and brother in law. It's so nice to get away and enjoy their lovely surroundings on the AuSable River, being with nature, friends, and wonderful family. We, of course, had a Zentangle gathering with lot's of sharing, creativity, and laughter. I hadn't seen my sister since my wonderful CZT experience in Whittinsville, so I was able to share experiences and fun things from that wonderful weekend which she, and my other sister, and niece made possible.

I made up kits for the gals with their initials done with the Sakura metallic gel pens that we had received at the training. I gave each of them 5 official Zentangle tiles in the packets (their first), so they could experience the joys of this fabulous paper. I had gotten some black pastel paper which I cut up to create a little folder and "wrapped" the tiles with a lovely little bow.

We played with the black paper I brought and metallic gel pens and created some lovely little jewels. Friends Sandy and Vicky were part of the original Zentangle class I had done with my sister last fall. They shared the artwork they have created since then, and it was phenomenal. Sandy also showed us a Zentangle purse she was in the process of creating. It was beautiful. I will post pictures of this lovely completed purse when I get them. It's so much fun to know so many talented women - Women rule! It was a wonderful weekend.
