Garage Zentangle

OK, this is one of the projects that I've been working on for some weeks. It will be many more weeks before I am finished, so I've decided to show you the progress. We had our garage sheet rocked and suddenly I had a blank canvas. So, I started painting two foot squares with left over house paints.

Trying to guess where I used all these colors in the house got to be quite a game.

This zentangle is my profile and it's located so that I know exactly where to park the car. I just pull in, look to my left and can tell the right spot. Of course, after many years in this house I finally hung a fluffy netting so that it touches the windshield when I park the car. Anyway, I have used Sharpie pens and have discovered that the markers do slide on the more glossy paints.

This pictures gives some perspective on how little I've done. However, there is no timetable and it's fun to spend a few minutes adding to this piece of art!

Giant flowers are going to grow on this part of the wall. I must admit that today the temperatures are to reach 106 so I may skip the outsides activities today.

What a cool idea. Big wall. No pressure.

Anyway, I just got Pamo's zine and there you are! I really like your two drawings. Made me smile.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

What a great idea. I really like the way you did the background and then are not staying confined in the squared for the tangling. This is going to be a really neat wall. Too bad it's stuck out in the garage! Have you tangled around a doorframe inside the house yet?

I am using one of my husband's tool drawer sets to eyeball where I am pulling the car into.
