Just to briefly show you the process here are a few photos. I like to draw but not be too focused when I'm watching TV with my husband or talking on the phone. I feel that if my hands are busy I'm "working". So after I drew my cat outline I divided it into sections. Each section is covered with Zentangle patterns inspired over the years by Rick and Maria who began the Zentangle movement.
I used a few stamps by Dina Wakley along the way and also colored them in with "irRESISTibles". Now the cat had splashes of color and texture. When I did as much tangling as I felt like on the cat then I decided to hide him in his own little garden patch of flowers. The flowers are actually the Kaleidoscope stencils and heavy white gesso. I added additional interest with another stencil called Blazonry and Interference Blue Golden Acrylic.
Summer may be over but I still have my imaginary garden with my imaginary cat. I will see you here next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas, until then, take care. ~ Hugs, Renee
