Collision of tangles

I’m sliding later and later in the week with my challenge tiles. I really like doing it earlier in the week and then watching as others’ entries come in, but I never ever peek before I do mine as the power of suggestion from the awesome work other CZTs and tanglers do is too strong. […]

Illuminated Letters!

Ever since I drew this:    I’ve been jazzed about illuminated letters. More like obsessed.  Today this book arrived:   As you can clearly see, Ketzelah (Yiddish for little kitten, a.k.a Princess, Pretty Girl, Diva Cat) is as excited as I am to dig in!

I also was delighted to have […]

Hamsa Hand


This Zentangle-henna fusion hamsa hand stalled after the first paisley (the big one, on the palm), but took on new life today. I may yet shade it, although I am fairly pleased with where it is now. The hamsa has a rich history, actually. I’m not gonna lie–I drew this first, then looked into the […]

Flux Zendala

Three challenges in one

With CZT #18 quickly approaching–just one week from today!–I thought I’d tackle a challenge or two today. 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 […]
