A Zentangle journal

I have a few, to say the least!, papers that I've done some tangles on. I thought I was pretty clever by putting them all in a plastic sleeve notebook so I could see them but thought I'd like to have something smaller so I could carry the book with me to tangle in. So....this was a piece of fabric I had leftover from doing one of the Inspired by the Master's quilts for our ongoing exhibit. You can see my original piece here.

So I used this leftover for the front and back of a journal that I put some of my tangle pieces in.
These were some of the papers I had. Each piece (8 1/2" x 11") were folded twice so the journal book is a nice size to throw in my purse or have laying on my end table where I sit at night.
This is the first page of a tangle. I actually wrote out my name to use as the guide for filling in with different tangles. Hard to the the letters ROBBIE but they are there!
Just a few of the pages...
The heart tangles are some of what I used last year to print on fabric for our Valentine fiber post card exchange.
And I just have to show our little one all dressed up for Halloween!!! She was a doll. I'll be updating her blog shortly with more pics and story.
And these were some of the kids who stopped by Halloween night! Isn't that the cutest outfit!! We gave out 199! piece of candy and finally shut out the light at 7:25 p.m. We had to dig into our 'stash' to put the extra 9 pieces in! Good part is Bob still has some treats left for himself!
Kalee is napping so I'm doing some computer work and should be able to finish the binding on Dawn's table topper! Geezzzz, you would think I have a baby here!
