Maria Thomas, Co-Founder of Zentangle did a recent blog post and listed all of the different items she has tangled on over the years. It got me thinking about how many different things I have tangled, and while my list is not quite as long, I have done around 20+ items. In her post, she also challenged us to draw a zentangle on something that challenges our sense of "Oh my goodness, I couldn't possibly do that!" I have always hesitated tangling on my walls because they are so heavily textured...but a challenge is a challenge. I did this before Christmas, at the top of my stairs. It took my husband and daughter (who stayed a few nights during her college break) to realize it was drawn on the wall and not just a tile stuck behind the switch plate. Very fun when they discovered it!
So, since that was so much fun, I took an old wooden set of our house address (quite faded) that had stenciled numbers and a stenciled apple on it and gave it a zentangle face lift.
