SGD is thrilled to welcome Lorraine Thomson, a Certified Zentangle® Teacher. Lorraine has learned the process during an intensive course in Providence, Rhode Island, taught by the founders of Zentangle ®, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and Maria’s daughter Molly Hollibaugh.
Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to create beautiful non-representational, interesting images by drawing structured patterns one stroke at a time. It was developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas in 2003 as a way for anyone to access their creativity and as a type of visual meditation and practice. They believe “life is an art form and the Zentangle® Method is an elegant metaphor for a deliberate artistry of life.” You don’t even need to know how to draw to do it! Anyone can do a Zentangle® as it is taught one step at a time. Some will obviously have more of a flourish with it but children, seniors, artists and non-artists alike can do it.
Get into the Zen with Lorraine and one of the fastest growing art-forms, Zentangle! This is a beginner-level course. Course fee includes Zentangle mini-kit and all other materials needed. You may wish to bring along a notebook for taking notes. Each student will receive a 15% in-store discount during Lorraine's course. Make the day of it and join Lorraine for "The Next Step" workshop in the afternoon
Monday, January 18: 9:30am - 12 noon Please note: If you sign up for both morning & afternoon classes, a $5 discount will be offered :)
Take your basic skills to "The Next Step" with Lorraine's afternoon workshop! Get into the Zen with Lorraine and one of the fastest growing art-forms, Zentangle! Please note that this is an intermediate-level course and basic Zentangle skills are a pre-requisite for taking this course. If you are brand new to Zentangle, please attend Lorraine's 101 Workshop in the morning prior to taking this course. Course fee includes all materials needed. You may wish to bring along a notebook for taking notes. Each student will receive a 15% in-store discount during Lorraine's course.

So as I have said before, you can create your own colour scheme for a layout if you don't have the necessary papers. You just have to have a little imagination.
Here are the products that I used and the layout:

Here is my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I got my inspiration from Pinterest. I used designer paper from Bobunny called Whiteout. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp set Believe.
As always I love using non traditional colours for my Christmas card.
