Who ya gonna call? Oasis Nutcracker

Oasis - Grossmont Lifetime Learning (55+).  December Zentangle class at Oasis was festive and fun with raffles and kissing (candy).  Our class was all about using the Zentangle Method and creating a Holiday Nutcracker.  Did you know?

According to German folklore, nutcrackers bring good luck to your family and protect your home.  A nutcracker is said to represent power and strength, serving like a watchdog, guarding your family against danger.  The nutcracker bares its teeth to evil spirits and services as a messenger of good luck and good will.  Long ago, rare or unusual nutcrackers were part of the social dining tradition.  Serving as whimsical conversation pieces. 

You learn something everyday.

Zentangle patterns speak for themselves, but a little color goes a long way.  We added some red to enhance Mr. Nutcracker and that is all it needed. Tangles used:  Flux, Nightsbridge, Wud, Meer, Cubine, Knase, Bales, and Tipple,  

Remember, so many tangles, so little time.
To all my students (over 1,500) that joined me in class this year...… thank you.
