Tangles and Doodles

Yes, I know it may seem that tangling and doodling have nothing to do with metal embossing. However, in MercArt we have been doing, some metal samplers using all sorts of doodles, to show the different textures of our tools for more than 15 years.
When I saw some of the Zentangle ™ expressions in books and cards, I immediately thought about those samplers. Actually many of the patterns in those books were the same we had been doing all along!
Doing tangles in a different media, other than my beloved metal seemed odd at first, but I gave it a try and I became hooked!
Metal is by all means still my passion, but I can see the relation of both artistic expressions and I’m embracing it.
