Zentangles - and win some fineliners

I've been bitten by the Zentangle bug! Read all about it on the Letraset blog
Fine liners are the perfect pens for this (well, not just for this, you can use them to draw in detail on stamped images, doodle backgrounds, even when you are using alcohol markers, they won't smear or run). Here is the official description:

Letraset Fine Line Drawing pens combine an everyday low price point with superlative performance. They use waterbased, pigmented inks that are quick drying and resistant to light fading. They’re also fully marker proof, making them ideal for use alongside Letraset’s alcohol based Tria and ProMarker ranges. 

Four line widths are available, for sharp accurate line work and an ultra-smooth art surface feel

The great news is that I have two prizes of five FineLine pens to give away, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Letraset post then pop back here to leave your name. I will draw a winner on Monday, and let you know on Tuesday who won. Good luck

I have been introduced to Minions today, I took Kiki to see Despicable Me and loved it - subtle humour that Disney is so good at, I laughed out loud and I want a Minion for Christmas...

See you tomorrow x

  16. Hey En, I tried to post over on their blog, but I couldn't find the comments link? I'll go back and try again in a bit. Could be this monitor... it's too light. I can't see some colors! I don't expect to win, but I like to let them know I'm watching. Cute letters. I think she'll love them too. And the kids are sure to enjoy them. Hugs, to Kiki. Jess

  17. I guessed correctly! Woo hoo for me! LOL
    Just got back from leaving you some love on the Letreset site. You are amazing....these are your first efforts and they are just terrific! I love doing this but mine are a work in progress. There are great tangle pattern sites out there that send pattern step outs and newsletters. Great fun!
    As always, love your work. And of course would love to win the pens! Thanks so much
