word-tangles

this month's issue of cloth*paper*scissors magazine features an excellent article by sandy bartholomew on how to create your own zentangles. she takes you through the basics of how to get started, and especially encourages lots and lots of play! and while i absolutely love the instant texture that's created by doodling in a 3.5" square, it didn't take long for my mind to wander towards letterforms and words. so i started "word-tangling" with my name.....


and then my initials.....


and then just a simple "hi" that might look fun on the front of a card!

You are incredibly amazing with your mind and creativity! Seriously. On another note, I think I lost mine again over the last few days. For one thing, I've been ill again with my liver issues. But also life has been a bit tough. Thanks for your love and support.

Lori,

I love this one too! I think you are THE most creative person in the world! You are constantly coming up with new ideas :) :)! I love it!

I must say, I am partical to this one because my name is also Lori :) and I spell it the same way ;).

Either way, it's beautifully great!
