 I have been playing with colour - again!

This is a variation of Zentangle pattern "Squid" along with one of my new patterns "Fysh"  ... they remind me of those sand dollars and star fish you get washed up on the beaches.  

And also my first "Mooka".  This is a darling pattern from Rick and Maria at Zentangle and if you haven't already had a go with it, I recommend it.   I have used both black and brown Pigma Micron's here.  Still have some shading to go.


WORKSHOPS .... I have just returned from Melbourne where I have been teaching at Michelle's Sewing Basket (both beginner Zentangle and Zentangle for Quilters).   These classes were a great success and I am now booked to return to Melbourne to do my two day drawing workshop (Illuminated Letters with Zentangle)  on the 9th & 10th September 2011 ... you can contact Michelle or Jim at Michelle's Sewing Basket as they are my hosts again.

My Newsletter will be out next week and there will be some exciting news about what I am up to ...... so if you haveven't already, sign up for it on my web site http://janemonkstudio.com

Happy Tangling everyone ... Jane x
