Challenge 70 - Zentangles & Text

Challenge 70:  Text Inspired By Zentangles        June 22, 2012       Due: June 30, 2012
Host: Meena Schaldenbrand

What are Zentangles????   Zentangle is an easy to learn and relaxing method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns

For this challenge, create Zentangle inspired text in any size, shape or medium. You could begin with hand written text, computer fonts, rubberstamps, or decorative letters and fill in with Zentangle inspired designs. Other ideas: your name, monogram, favorite quotation or humor.

Draw, emboss, etch, fuse, piece, appliqué, paint, ink or free motion quilt your Zentangle designs.
