Zentangle and Beyond

This piece would be considered Zentangle inspirited art - we consider it absolutely beautiful.

Nancy Adams, a long-time customer from when the shop was in Crofton, created this.
She used Helen, one of Her Majesty's stamps...
and several tangles that she learned in Patti's Zentangle classes.

Well, it was actually a Happy Friday the 13th for us...

We received a delivery of Karen Lockhart stamps:

Haunting Witches Dresses, Haunt Couture and Pumpkin Cupcake

Wreath of Gifts, IB Striped Christmas Candle and Holiday Desserts

We are filled to the gills with Copic Sketch Markers.

Really, there is nothing so beautiful as a fully stocked display... (except when it's totally empty and we have to restock!!!)

We now have 221 colors and counting!

Do YOU Zentangle?

Well, do you?
Patti is away this week at a Zentangle Master Class. The store is running Zentangle Basics and Intermediate Classes monthly. The Basics class is an introduction to the philosophy of Zentagling using the preferred tools of Zentagle creators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Intermediate classes (which are numbered but do not needed to be taken in order) focus on learning and using 6-8 specific tangles (there are 102 in all!)
We are fully stocked with Zentagle supplies and Design Originals books written by certified Zentangle teachers.
Our next Zentangle Basics class is Tuesday, August 10th and our next Intermediate Class (#2) is August 11th. Sign up and check it out!
