So you've probably realised, if you've been following along on the Zentangle Untangled blog hop that it doesn't take much for me to geek out over my favourite artists. Day after day I have expressed my genuine excitement and honour I've had to have them share in the blog hop. I've meant every word, every day. I wrote up a list of people to ask to be involved - it was something of a dream list. And so, SO many of those dream guest bloggers said yes - it was and is overwhelming for a girl from Australia who is much less confident that she might seem!
I first became familiar with the work and journals of Fran Meneley a couple of years back in Cloth Paper Scissors and 1000 Artist Journals. Her work appeals to me with its use of colour, words, photographs and doodles. I knew Fran would be able to relate to Zentangle in some way and was thrilled when she agreed to be part of the celebrations. We've been friends via blogging for a couple of years but it's still always nerve wracking asking people to participate.
Fran hasn't let me down - you can find her entry HERE.
Thankyou, Fran, not only for your kind words about Zentangle Untangled but for your thoughtful responses through your journal to my book - seeing the way people interpret Zentangle and what I've written is easily the most rewarding part of being an author. It's art like this that reinspires ME - I'm heading to my journal pages now!
