Back in the Zone: A Card for Skylar


Patterns used: Crescent Moon, Tripoli, Betweed, Paradox, Undu


I have a small pile of blank cards with matching envelopes and have decided to use these to send messages to friends and family. Making this card was just the way I wish doing Zentangle always felt -- I was in the zone, and I didn't spend much time at all deciding on which patterns to go with. Everything just flowed. Drawing Zentangle feels like this very much of the time, true, but when I'm learning new patterns or techniques, or if I'm feeling tired or scattered, sometimes I find myself a bit stalled and wondering how to handle a composition. It was nice to slip back into the zone and to produce something I really like with very little effort or planning.
