Using Gems in Your Zentangle// An Unprofessional Tangler’s Guide

mandalaa

I had seen gems being used in zentangle since forever, and I finally decided to try it out. It used to look so complicated to make, but once I started, I realized that I was mistaken.

See that picture up there? That was the first gemdala (termed by me) that I made and actually liked. Since then, I have obsessively drawn, coloured and used gems in my zentangle like a hyperactive lunatic. Which I am, of course. Sometimes.

As I did it, I couldn’t help but notice that my way of drawing gemstones was different from the tutorials online. Seemingly simpler, too. That’s why today, I’m going to show you how draw them and how you can use them in your zentangle. Continue reading “Using Gems in Your Zentangle// An Unprofessional Tangler’s Guide”

A Brief Intro to Natural Captures// DIY Pocket Poem

I must say that my photography has increased a LOT these days. Mainly because I’m on vacation.

And I have too many favourite pictures to put into separate posts, one by one, all with detailed and organized notes and summaries. I mean, who even reads all that?

So here I am, introducing to you Natural Captures, a two-part photo series of unedited, original snaps of nature and wildlife.

This series will take place any two randomly selected days in May. Probably because I don’t stick to blogging plans very much.

Here’s what the featured image will look like:

Look at that little chickadee!!

Now that that’s done, let’s move on to the more interesting bit. Continue reading “A Brief Intro to Natural Captures// DIY Pocket Poem”

BIBPC the Fourth, Category {Perched}

Have you noticed that time has flown by so quick that it’s already the last category of BIBPC?

Team Fox is leading right now, with 499 points, but we have to keep the good work up if we want to win this thing. And I’m sure we can. GO TEAM FOX!

The theme this time is

Animal Close-Ups

Well, we haven’t got many animals around (not ones worth photographing anyway), so I picked a picture of a bird I had taken a while back.

STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

On my vacation back in December, I spotted this little bird perched on a piece of wire. I took a few pictures of it, and I believe it counts as a close-up since I zoomed as much as I could.

I also made a poster for BIBPC the Fifth to make up for the points I’m going to lose for the quality 😛

I guess that’ll do.


Until next time!

I am on Team Fox. It is currently in second place with 83 points. Come on team, you can do it!
