Some Christmas Tangles

I wanted to share some of my new Zentangle Inspired Art.  This first one is going to be one of my Christmas cards. I have a die for the word "peace" that I cut from card stock using my Cuttlebug.  I placed it on the card (which is a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card) and traced around it with pencil, then drew random circles for my tangles behind the word "peace".  I'm trying to decide it I want to add a touch of color to these "ornaments".  What do you think? 


This second piece is actually the first "ornaments" I drew and was what inspired me to make the Christmas card.  I guess I could cut this one down a bit and layer it on a card front.  It takes me an hour or two to do these ornaments, so it probably wouldn't be "cost" effective to make many of them! LOL!


This last one is just something I was playing around with. I never have any idea what my finished piece will look like and I'm generally surprised by how they turn out.  This one makes me think of candy canes and braided Christmas bread!

 Thanks so much for popping by! I appreciate all your wonderful comments!! Until next time...

♥ Hugs! ♥

Beautiful cards. I love the black and white, but that's just me.

I've been thinking of how to use tangled ornaments to make my cards and love the idea of a word through the middle. Yours are so pretty and I'm inspired to get busy and see what I can come up with! A little touch of color might be nice since it would be more "holiday" though generally I tend to be a purist.... :)

These are beautiful Susan, I think the idea of using your Peace design for a Christmas card is brilliant. Have you thought of scanning the artwork and printing off onto coloured paper, or onto just plain card and trying out different colour effects that way. I would certainly keep the original as black and white.
