Letter Z

My second tag for Tag Tuesday and a huge thank you for the wonderful comments on my first tag post and for the warm welcome.

My word for Z is Zentagle



I remember when this sort of artwork was called doodling and I used to do it all the time in the margins of my school exercise books. This usually meant I ended up in detention as the margin was for teachers remarks. Almost 60 years ago so I expect things have changed.


I drew the zentagle on a plain tag, masked it and distressed around it. Next came the fancy corner punch and then I added another tag behind to show up the corners better.

  3. Great tag Chrissie! Like you, I spent hours doodling in the back of school books and got told off for it too! Who would have thought it would be reborn as 'zentangle'?

  14. Love the colours and the kind of bohemian feel to this tag - and your story brought back memories too .... I remember having to cover books in wallpaper. Do they even still have exercise books these days?! :o)
