Black White & Zen

Gosh I love Zen Doodling!  Too much maybe, as I'm afraid that I'm using the same technique for this week's challenge! 
Inspired by my Fellow Design Team members who have done some amazing cards with this Apron LG 736  Stencil, I wanted to fill all those spaces with some Zentangle too.  I used the book "Zentangle 6" to learn how to do these patterns, and was surprised to learn that many of my fellow Dream Teamers created the samples in the book!  I TOLD you these ladies are awesome!  I do have some of these books on order and should arrive in the store over the next week or so, but if you want to have a peek-a-boo at mine, come on by the store!

Here's a close up...
Now, as I was catching up on my e-mails, I learned that we are now allowed to offer Sneak Peeks of the new designs being released at CHA this summer!  So some of the other members might be posting images with the new stencils, so be SURE to check them out.  I for one, am pulling them back out to play with, so that next week I can show you something new, and in the same Black and White theme, so be sure to check back!

And don't forget, if you post a picture of your card, or e-mail a sample to Lynell by the end of the month, you will be entered to win 2 free stencils! 

Good Luck!
And with that,
Doodle til you drop,
Glue til you go crazy,
And get yourself a new stencil to re-inspire you if you're feeling blocked!  There's so much you can do with them!


  1. Nice doodles! The card is really beautiful.

  2. Oh my gosh! This is beautiful. You've inspired me to give Zentangling another try.

  3. Beautiful job Jessie! It does get addicting doesn't it!

  4. You're doing a fabulous job with the Zentangling! Love this apron!

  5. I don't blame you for zentangling again...the technique is perfect for BLACK & White with a POP! Great job too and that apron sure looks fun!

  6. Such a pretty Zentangle. It is almost a companion piece to last week's. Great work.

  7. Fabulous Zen!! Am finally going to try it. I found my detail pens! Yeah. Thank you for the great inspiration. The apron is one of my very favorite stencils and you really did it beautifully!!

  8. Great Zen, I love the apron, nmot sure why I don't have it.
