Zentangle fabric

yes, i am still zentangle while i am quilting. i have notice that since i have being doing zentangles, my pressure has gone down.  it so relaxing.  i love doing it.  i have a few friends hooked on doing zentangles.  but what i have to show you today is what i have done with some of my zentangle pieces.  here is a picture of one of my zentangle pieces.  

i have scan my zentangle piece to photoshop element and was playing around with it.  one day while i was on youtube their was a tutoral on how to manipulate a picture and to print it onto fabric.  they mention spoonflower.com a website that will print your download pictures onto fabric.  they will also manipulate the picture to change the look if you want to.  so i played with my download zentangle on their site and here are the two fabric pieces that i came up with just by using this one zentangle piece.  i hope you like the two pieces that i had them print up.

yes these two piece are fabric.  this is a yard a piece for both.  the print could be smaller or larger it is your choice.
 this one is the basic.
this one is the mirror image.

what i found out is that i need to shade my zentangles very dark with what every color i use.
now i just have to decide what to make out of it, just look at it.

stitches for now.

That fabric is simply beautiful! I love the way the red is just enough to highlight the black, it adds a subtle spark. The second one almost looks like an adinkra symbol, or turtles. Great job!

Wow! You're full of surprises. I just love the print. Karoda has dyed or painted some wonderful fabric also. You must go take a look. Just keep them juices flowing.

This looks like a fun time and a diversion from your other work. The print is very bold and almost tribal. I can't wait to see what you do with it!!

Wow this is really amazing, you are a really talented artist and I can't wait to learn more about zentangle. Thank you for sharing.

Also I am excited to see another African American quilter - I never see ladies at the quilt shows that look like me :-)
