I had such a good time and liked the results of tangleing over the scraped on paint in my journal (see previous post) that I decided to do another page.
Sooooo - I chose a page with green acrylic paint wiped off on it and drew a few pears.
Then I tangled inside the pears. I was going to tangle a border but thought it might be too heavy and distract from the pears. Then I remembered my latest and one of my favorite washi tapes of pears. Perfect! So I used that and a couple other green washi tapes to make a border.
Here's the finished journal page:

Thanks for taking a look!
Hope you have a creative weekend!

I have a Canson Mixed Media Journal
that I've been using to use up leftover paint, or ink on stencils. The cover looks like this:
And the pages I used to use up leftover paint and sprays look like this:
SEI Tumble dye on a Crafters Workshop stencil. You get the reversed image when using up the ink left on the stencil.
Here's a tangle I started on a page with some acrylic paint wiped off on it.
This is the completed tangle. Designs were inspired by patterns and gallery examples in the following Zentange Books.

It's alot of fun and very relaxing if you let yourself give it a try and truly enjoy. You don't have to be creative - just need the desire to relax and let it stop all the thoughts flying around in your head!
Works for me!
