First attempt at a zentangle face


I've had so much fun watching Rebecca Anthony do her zentangle portraits, that I couldn't resist trying one last night as I watch Amira do her homework!  This is the result, and it was very relaxing and fun!

If you haven't discovered Rebecca, do head over and check out her always fabulous work! Smiles!
