Dreamweaver Stencils: February Flutters...Tangled Style!

Are you ready for the new Dreamweaver challenge for the month of February? It will be a short month of posts for the Dream Team, but we're pretty excited to share with you our versions of "February Flutters", meaning anything that flutters. Heart flutters, wings that flutter, breezes, sails, etc. So, come along for the ride and link your own "flutterings" to the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice. Meanwhile, here's my "fluttering" for the week:

I chose to play with some Zentangle, or as Lynell refers to it...Stentangle! It's awesome to be able to use the terrific open stencil designs to add your own patterns, doodles, or whatever! Just use a fine line pen like Sakura Micron or Copic Multiliners in .05 up to .7 sizes to outline and create designs that are fine and light, to bold and dark. I used the newly released Zen Butterfly stencil for this and added a sentiment from the Bird Words stencil. Coloring and shading were with Copic markers, and the background was broken up a bit using a small square of terrycloth with  Copic Blending Solution. Just press and hold over the various areas for a few sections...the end result is a more mottled and watery appearance. To finish, I curled the edges of the panel for a more "fluttery" feeling. I am no Zentangle expert, but it is easy and fun to doodle and play. Give it a try! If you'd love to know more about Zentangling with Dreamweaver Stencils, you can purchase the Design Originals Zentangle 6 book HERE. You'll find a few creations in the book by members of our Dream Team, past and present, and even me!

Be sure to leave me some encouragement before flitting over to the "A" team blogs:

I love the way you zentangled the butterfly. It's amazing how it can look so different depending on how one zentangles it!

Beautiful Stentangle. I love the bold loops on the upper part of the wings and the more subdued lower parts of the wings.
