As I am still in recovery mode and can’t make it down to the craft room, I’ve recruited my daughter Meghan to post today. Meghan is a big fan of Zentangling-creating abstract art through doodled patterns.
Giving her some vintage lace as inspiration, I asked her to come up with, what we’ll call “Vintangles.” Vintage inspired doodles that will make for great trim to any project where you need to add a bit of texture. And, a lot of whimsy, as these loose, free flowing doodles are very whimsical!
With lace as inspiration, Meghan created this first one which she calls “Parisian Cafe,” as the spokes remind her of cafe umbrellas and the lattice, of a tablecloth. Each step appears below. You can complete each step, or stop at whichever point. The key thing to keep in mind, is these are truly “loose” doodles. No measuring required. Just fun drawing. I think this one would look really fun drawn on colored cardstock, trimmed out, and attached to the edge of a card. Maybe even make each step a different color?
We’ll have some finished projects soon showing some Vintangled applications. 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Creating!!
Michelle & Meghan
