I know… I’ve been pretty silent. I’ve taken a step back from sewing to explore a new interest called Zentangle. Basically, Zentangles are a form of doodling that inspires creativity, acceptance, and peace. I love it and have become kinda addicted to it.

This one is a Zentangle inspired art piece that I made for my cubicle at work!

I have been participating in weekly challenges at I am the Diva -CZT, MadebyJoey, and The Bright Owl.

Yes, I have been sewing a little too. I have been working on a purse for the Sew Powerful project through Liberty Jane Clothing. I also have been commissioned to make a PJ set for a little girl’s new Disney Animator Doll! Her grandma chose the Doll Tag Clothing pattern called Slumberland.

Family Motto Canvas

At the last Stake Conference a speaker talked about helping to bring your family closer by establishing a family motto. This motto contains what’s important to you and your family. I decided to make this for my father and ma. I will also make one for my other parents and add some scripture based values.

To tackle this project, I used the letters of our last name to start each sentence. The background are the colors of our family crest and tartan.

I spray painted the background red and used yellow acrylic paint and stencils for our last name. Then I wrote the values out in pencil and went over them with a paintbrush and green acrylic paint.

Here’s how it turned out! I do plan on going over green with another coat mixed with a tad bit of white to lighten it up.
