Zentangle Tile #93

Good morning friends

I had to try putting different patterns in each sections of the crazy Huggins. It's pretty busy, but i still had to try it. It was lots of fun to do, but I'm not crazy about the chaotic look to the tile. Crazy Huggins though is showing up in all my Zentangle these days. I haven't got it right yet, but I'm sure having fun trying.

I wondered what would happen if I added bands of colour and I like the tile much better this way. From a Zentangle Tile to a ZIA with just a few strokes of colour. (I used Prismacolor Pencils.)

Tangles used:
Diva Dance
'Rainbows" I'm not sure what this tangle is called. It is sort of Tagh like but also reminds me of Beelight without the grid. If you know what it's called, please let me know in a comment below and I will update this post.

String is  #223 from Tangle

Zentangle Tile #86

Good morning friends

I finally had a chance to play with the tangle TAXI again, and this time I am much happier with the result. This is a tile I did just trying to relax and refocus.

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, February 28th & 29th

Hello friends

Today I'd like to share the last February page in my 2016 Tangle A Day Calendar by Carol Ohl. I've been working on the calendar a little more lately and just have to shade the last page and June will be done!

It's been chaotic here, so having Zentangle that I can just grab and work on for a few minutes is sure helping the nerves. :-)

Zentangle Tile #91

Hello friends

It was good to get some Zentangle time in this week. With RA you have very limited energy, and what I do have has been spent on doing our Year End (ug) and packing. Because of RA, I can no longer enjoy our cabin in the mountains and we had an opportunity to rent it out for a year. With like 3 weeks notice. We were hoping they would take it fully furnished but they have two cats and were concerned with the leather items. So we will be moving about 1/3 of the furniture and ALL of our personal belongings.

I'm not a lot of help, I'm afraid ... but I can go for 5 minutes, then rest for 15 then go again. So at least I feel like I'm contributing. Hubby is running around doing the work of 3 people. I love that man.

Since I need the downtime, I wanted to participate in Adele Bruno's It's A String Thing Challenge #158.   

While Drogon isn't completely new to me, I haven't used it on a tile before. Then we were to use our 'mac and cheese' tangles ... our 'go to' tangles. I couldn't think of any other than Flux! However, I did add a few tangles that I have been seeing around and completed the tile with the challenge string. Ha - the string disappeared which is always fun in the end. There is a pretty big OOPS with Drogon but I'm ignoring it.  :-)

Abeko - Lynn Mead

Zentangle Tile #85

Good morning friends

Today I'm sharing my Zentangle Tile #85

I was in a waiting room waiting for some tests, and just decided to draw some tangles that I remembered without having to look up the steps.  It sure helped pass the time.

IAST #156 ... Happy 3rd Birthday!

Good morning friends

Today I'd like to share my Zentangle Tile #90, which was done for Adele Bruno's It's A String Thing #156.  It's a special week, as it is IAST's 3rd birthday! Adele had a very appropriate string for us this week, AND it could be done as a single stroke. I love those single stroke tangles & strings!

Because it's such a special challenge, I decided to use one of my coloured tiles! (See THIS post for more information). All of the tangles were new to me, and I admit to taking a little liberty with Onomato by inserting Orbs la Dee inside it's outer edges. Sort of a combination of the two. Then, I added C02 for some celebratory sprinkles.
