Stencils and Zentangles with Kirsten

Hello Creatives! Here is a quick project for you this week. Are you a fan of Zentangles? I admit I wasn't familiar with them until recently when I researched them for an art lesson for my elementary students. (I'm an art teacher by day and it is pretty fun!) Go ahead and do a quick Google search and feast your eyes on the all the amazing patterns people have created. I find this drawing practice to be relaxing and a great way to improve my drawing skills. My students got a lot of fine motor skills practice with their Zentangle projects! It was quite satisfying to them to fill their papers with patterns and the end results were impressive and they were very proud of themselves!

Grab an Artistcellar stencil that has a larger pattern and use your favorite black pen (like a thin nib Faber-Castell Pitt Pen) to trace the design onto a smooth drawing or Bristol paper. Now you are ready to fill each section with a different pattern! 

My favorite stencils to use for this are the Quilt Series Stencils and the Seafoam stencils from the Water series

I hope this inspires you to try something new with your stencils! Happy creating!
