I met Kass Hall last year as fellow exhibitors at the monster Papercraft Show in Brisbane. I fell in love with her ( although she will kill me for saying this) and her Mum. They are funny, bonza people. Kass is a mixed -media artist and certified Zentangle instructor. She features in my Supplies Me Workshop, giving her fave pen recommendation!
Way back then, she was working on her book, and I have been waiting for Kass’s book to arrive with great anticipation. It hit the Amazon hit parade before it was even published!
Reading Zentangle Untangled is just like having Kass chat to me. Well maybe not making me laugh as much, you need her in person for that, but her writing voice is very relaxing. I
read absorbed the whole book in a few gulps. I didn’t mean for that to happen…I am super-busy… no time for dilly-dallying and reading books…
I have seen and heard about Zentangling, although I have never tried it myself. And since reading Kass’s awesome book, there have been patterns popping up in my journals all over the place! And I’m not usually a pattern person…
I would’nt be so bold as to call it Zentangling…
Anyway, whatever it is, I am ENJOYING it!
I used my new Schmincke watercolour half pan 12 set. ( Ooooooh, it is niiiiiice. Crazy nice. Like go and get some immediately nice. ) For some reason these colours are the very definition of Mexico for me. I just got invited to go to Cancun to celebrate a birthday with some of my favourite peeps in the Universe… soooo… Cancun coloured Janetangling is bursting out everywhere…
See what you started Kass?!!!!
