Peace

At a time when the world is overrun with terrorism and fear, I thought bringing a little peace to bear was appropriate. For those who celebrate, I wish you a peaceful Thanksgiving. For those who don’t, I still wish you peace. I encourage and appreciate sharing!:

Rising to the challenge

Last week I promised myself I’d at least participate in the I am the Diva weekly challenge. At the same time, I decided to participate in an ATC swap (Tangle Your Initials), which I’ve never done.

I Am the Diva is always good for a new challenge, and this week’s focused on Flux, a tried and true tangle that Rick and Maria only just published in the most recent Zentangle newsletter. Bonus–there are two […]

Green tile materials

Now I know how Kermit the Frog feels

…because it’s not that easy being (or tangling) green. This week’s I Am the Diva challenge #209 is “Saint Patty’s” with the instruction to go green. Welllll….first I tried this tile with a mixed green watercolor pencil wash and a compilation of tangles evoking thoughts of spring. (I am so far from Irish it felt […]
