I started a scrapbook for my Zentangle experiences just after coming back from the Certification Seminar in 2013. I chose a brown paper-covered scrapbook so that I could embellish the cover. This has been a kind of start-and-stop project, but I'm feeling the need to go ahead and complete it. The brown paper is perfect for Renaissance tangling. It takes the Sakura pens quite well without bleeding and holds the powder from the Zenstone pencils and white charcoal pencils well, but will let you smudge a little, too. I'm working larger than usual to cover it, since it holds 12" x 12" pages. The front cover is close to finished and the back is started, but on hold until the cover is done. I'm planning to use either a modpodge finish or an acrylic spray when done.
