Festive Banner - Christmas Card - Video Class

Learn how to draw a banner and decorate it with some festive tangles. Try a new technique to bring some color to a black background. Gain unlimited access to videos (total length 1 hour 15 minutes) and a printable PDF eBook.
I wanted to create a class that is not only fun and would offer some new approaches to tangling and techniques, but also help with ideas for gifts in the upcoming Christmas season. I know that I’m not enthusiastic at all about any shopping so making the gifts and cards seems like a wonderful idea and 100% certain way to prepare someone a unique and personalized gift. 
 
I tried the banner design on various background but finally decided on offering a class with a black background. I have a certain respect for black tiles and don’t feel most comfortable using them. But I believe that I’ve found a fun and easy way to introduce some colors but still keep the elegance of the dark background. So I hope that for you this will be a new technique to try and explore.
 
The focal point of this design is the beautiful banner, which is not really Zentangle- related but I believe that it’s the perfect addition to the design. Also, although seemingly complex, it’s easy to practice and learn. My intention was also to find fun and festive-looking tangles that could be used for making of Christmas cards but you can certainly use any tangles to make cards for any other occasion.

By purchasing this class you will get unlimited access to videos that break down the process into logical steps (total length 1 hour and 15 minutes) and a PDF eBook which contains step by step instructions to finishing the project, step-outs of the tangles used and also suggestions for three other shapes of banners, again with step by step guides.
