When my hubby and I had lunch at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen Centre last week, I picked up these little sugar wrappers because I thought the colours were lovely.
I trimmed off the ends and opened them up, and cut off the printed portions, and then cut them in half long-ways.
Fixing some of the ends down with masking tape, I wove the remaining pieces.
I stuck down the ends with a spot of Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to stabilise it.
Turning it over, I stuck double-sided tape over the back.
I stuck the piece down on to a piece of dark red card.
Adding the Zentangle border. A selection of ATC cards from my Zentangle album for inspiration, and then pens I used.
The finished piece.
This is my first attempt at a Zentangle on a dark background, and I am not really satisfied with the result… I think I might have done better to leave the woven piece alone! I shall think about it, and if I still feel the same way, I shall cut the woven piece out and re-mount it on more plain card. Either way, it will probably end up as a card topper.
I definitely need more practice!
