Challenge #32 Zentangle is for Everyone

Yes, indeed. Zentangle is for everyone. The artistic meditation that keeps you in the present. Every stroke is deliberate. It's a feel-good art. It's quick and you can create it just about anywhere.

Carole Ohl was the guest challenger this week on Laura Harms' blog. She asked us to come up with a Zentangle using four specific tangle patterns (Paisley, Zedbra, Baton, and Keenees). If you send her your completed zentangles, she will put them in an art show she is showcased in, in a restaurant in Ohio. So here are my submissions:

This one was created while floating on Lowell Lake in my kayak.

This was created at home after the delightful paddle.

I hope that you enjoy them as well as those dining at Amicis.

Challenge #31 Fairyland

At first I thinking that Carol Bailey Floyd's, this week's guest challenger on Diva's site, challenge just wasn't me. I took out a black ATC tile and began to work and found that little girl in me coming out to play. I raised two boys so fairies were not around in our household, but I'm pleased with my tile. If I have time I'll try to get another one done soon. To be honest, this heat gets to me.

I like the white on black, and I thought that the ATC would be a good size to try this out on.

Hope you like it.

Weekly Challenge #30: "String Theory v.V :Initialize"

While our favorite Diva, Laura, is taking some much needed family time away from her blog, Christina, from stART has stepped up to give her tangle buddies a challenge. Thank you, thank you. I took last week off from the challenge to get myself back into the swing of things after a nice, tangling & paddling, relaxing week at the lake. Now I'm ready. It's funny how I think about the my head at first then after some procrastination, finally sitting down and tangling my initials. Block letters as well as script. I'm so glad that I did. I feel so much better now. I tell ya, that zentangle really works! Ahhhhhhhh.
