I have always been a doodler. Whether I am in a staff meeting trying to stay awake or occupying time while on a conference call or on hold I love to doodle. Until now I never knew it had a name or any benefits. Cammie informed me that doodling is a form of art called Zen doodling or Zen tangling an today’s card is a fine example of Cammie’s Zendoodling.
Today’s hectic lifestyle can leave us burned out. It’s no wonder that more and more people are engaging in healing activities such as yoga, meditation, and massage. Artistic expression is also a great way to de-stress. Zen Doodling, combines the calming benefits of meditation with the soothing effects of drawing for a unique new take on relaxation. Zen doodling doesn’t require any artistic training, and there’s no need for special tools or equipment. With just a pen and a scrap of paper, many find that the simple repetitive nature of drawing patterns is spiritually rewarding and can boost creative confidence.
To accomplish the image, Cammie just stamped the Stampin Up Blended Bloom #135906 image and grabbed one of the new Project Life journaling pens #135305 an started doodling inside each flower petal. When she finished it was a beautiful flower and she just added a spot of melon mambo ink and a mat to make the image pop. The background paper is the perfect “Zentangle” piece from the Back to Black #133700 to complement her image. She added a sentiment from the Fabulous Four #134174stampset.
