Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, March 22nd, 23rd and 24th

Hello friends

Today I'm sharing a page from my 2016 Tangle A Day Calendar by Carol Ohl.


I'm down with a disgusting cold ... started in my chest and is now in my head. Bah. Should have bought stock in Kleenex long ago. Anyhow, my eyes are burning so no new tangling for me until this goes away. But I have lots of pages from the 2016 Calendar to show yet!

Zentangle Tile #106

Hello friends

Today I'd like to share my Zentangle Tile #106. I had flown back to Calgary to sit with my Dad while he was in Palliative Care and Zentangle was very soothing to me. I would draw and chat to my Dad at the same time. He wasn't responsive, but I'm sure he could hear me.

There were a couple of new tangles I wanted to try out (Spoon Flowers is one of them) - and it's all very random on the string. Just like my chatting with Dad, which was also very random.


Tangles used:
Spoon Flowers
Banana Braid
Crescent Moon
Printemps
Tipple
Joki
Baton
Aura's or Echo Lines. Some CZT's call them one thing - other's call them the other. Then there are people who add a couple of Auras/Echo lines and re-name the tangle as a totally new one.

Zentangle Tile #105

Hello friends

Today I'd like to share my Zentangle Tile #105. I don't think I've ever done a mono tangled tile before  but I was dealing with a stressful time and this felt very soothing.



Of course, now I think I'd like to add some colour to it! We will see if that happens or not.

Coloured Tile #111

Hello friends

Once I finished yesterday's tile, I thought I'd like to try adding some colour...


I quite like it! Plus, I got to pay with my new Zig Clean Colour Markers, which were a birthday gift from my Mom. They are amazing, although some colours blended better on the Zentangle Tile than others. Gotta love it when an experiment turns out this good.

For comparison, here is yesterday's tile ...

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, March 25th, 26th and 27th

Hello friends

I really thought I'd do better at keeping up with my Tangle A Day Calendar for 2017 than I did for 2016. But ...  ... ... I still plan on keeping up with it AND finish the 2016 one as well. Today I'd like to share my page from the 2016  Tangle A Day Calendar.

Zentangle Tile #112

Hello friends

I know - it's been quiet on this blog for awhile. I have actually had some improvement in my RA pain and mobility, so I have been able to get more done which means less time for crafting. Recently I spent several days in the hospital, sitting with my Dad. I took my Zentangle with me, which really helped me remain calm and relaxed during a very stressful and sad time.

Now that the weather is nicer, I've also been sitting outside and doing Zentangle. Today I'd like to share my Zenetangle Tile #112.


I have always done my own strings, but I took 5 tiles and pencilled strings from Tangle Patterns. This one is String #244, by Debra Sweeting. It was quite a departure for me - such an unusual string. When I looked at it, I knew I wanted to put Fassett in the 'triangle' areas and the tile just grew from there.
