Most of what I do is not technically Zentangle but rather Zentangle inspired art (ZIA). A true Zentangle has no top or bottom, no right or left. You can look at it from any orientation. One it becomes a picture with top and bottom, it becomes ZIA. Either way, tangling is one of the most relaxing, enjoyable activities I've every done. I can get lost for hours in the shapes and patterns.
My new artistic endeavor has opened so many product avenues, I'm frankly a bit overwhelmed. Etched jewelry components, postcards, cell phone covers, texture plates; the possibilities are endless. Oh, if I only had more hours in the day. I've been working with a printer to begin exploring some of my new ideas and hope to have a few items in my store soon (Cheryl Foiles Designs).
Now you know why I changed the name of my blog. It's not just about jewelry any more, it's about art, jewelry, and co-mingling the two. I can't give away all my ideas just yet but I hope to have lots of surprises to share with you soon.
