Zentangle jewelry tags

First the cats:  yes they are wonderful and yes they are the most adorable teenage boys you've ever seen.  Very cuddly when you can get a moment with them.  Currently, they are in hiding.  They miss their human Mom who spent the first eight and a half month of their lives with her.  So although it's not the same situation as rescuing an abused or neglected cat, but it still will take a week or so for them to trust me.  Yesterday, I spent the entire day locked in my bedroom with them.  Got to hold each one twice.  But now they've snuck out and our house has a thousand hiding places.  Just have to wait for them to reappear.  I am hoping food will help.  But I digress from the topic of this blog:  Zentangle jewelry tags.

Since I will be putting my work on our website for sale in the near future as well as taking pieces to shows (I normally just sell my work in galleries) I decided I needed jewelry tags.  I have a stamp that says:  Mirrix Studio.  But just the stamp alone looked really uninteresting on a small square of white paper. So I whipped out my color pencils and a black pen and went to town.  Not exactly works of art, but colorful and give a nice balance to the beadwork.  At least I think so.  Plus, it gives me a chance to scribble.

Here they are:
