30 Day Art Journal/Blog Challenge - Day 5

Today's chellenge:
More Zentangling.

So, I asked myself, what would happen if I Zentangled on an acrylic paint background.
It's a little difficult, because the surface is not super flat and my sharpie pen has been giving me headaches. It's supposed to be a permanent pen but halfway through the ink started wiping away.
What's up with that?

Here's the page. I love the colors of the paint on this page. It's built on a background I created yesterday. Just some Zentangle and personal ephemera. I am having a picture of my husband and I from my cell phone printed, will be a few days and it will be complete...

Close up of the hearts.

Close up of the words.

The pictures aren't the best, I know. It's REALLY overcast today and I just can't seem to get some good lightining even near a window.

Will update this page again once I have the picture and I am going to dig out some more personal ephemera, maybe Zentangle some more.
We'll see where it takes me.


  1. Thanks for visiting my Blog! Love your work! I love purple too!

  2. The textures and line work in those hearts is fantastic and I loved having a look around your blog xx

  3. It has the appearance of embossed leather. It's great. I'm wondering if your paint wasn't completely dry yet. I have written on acrylic but I use a fixitive first. I paint my layers and let it dry. Then I spray on fixitive and allow it to dry completely. It creates a fresh (but clear) surface to work on and protects the paint underneath.
