Oh, I am having way too much fun making these. I've made seven in the last two days. Fortunately I'll be busy with other obligations the rest of the week and am forced to stop.
Here are the books with covers opened and spines exposed. When fully opened, they're completely flat and should be very easy to tangle on. I can't wait to try.
Someone online pointed out that these Bitty BookZ™ fit well in the old (no longer available) wooden box with the Zentangle® motto on the front. I've never known what to do with this box but this answers the question. I love it as a storage container.
And finally, this was some of the pre-book binding preparation mess. All cleaned up now, thank goodness.
I'm not the only one obsessed with this, but wow, it took over my life this week!
"It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions." --Robert Bly
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class is not yet scheduled--stay tuned.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
