Ornaments - easy!
I wanted to do some zentangle ornaments to use as gift tags this year. I needed for them to be quick, inexpensive, and still look festive so I decided on these. I purchased a sheet of red poster-board (99c) and used a large circle punch. While the large punch wasn't cheap ($26 less a 40% off coupon), using the large punch made the prep process go so quickly. I then did tangles using a gold Sakura gelly roll pen. I choose simpler tangles and did them larger than I would normally do on a tile because of the thickness of the line that the gold pen produces. All the ornament/gift tags above were done in one evening. The gold pen doesn't photograph too well but it looks great in person.
These will all be given away so I guess these fill the bill for the Diva's challenge too!!
