Travel ING

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #184: "New Official Tangle: ING by Molly"

With a swing into spring and something to bring
departing, arriving, easy-going.
Flying, travelling, meeting, tangling!
Flowing, growing, smiling, appreciating.

Exciting!!

A wonderfully enthusiastic art group in Cairns (Northern Australia) have kindly invited me to share Zentangle with them so this coming weekend we are flying up for a 2 day workshop to tangle and create. Paul is coming too for a treat in the warmth of the tropics and an adventure in the rainforest. This will be a very special and memorable experience for me.
Life is like a Zentangle .......full of delightful surprises!

Ahh it's ING

It's always exciting when a new tangle emerges from Zentangle Headquarters.
This week their newsletter introduced Molly's ING, you can find the step outs here and it's a beauty!! You can create sharp points or soften the corners for a little diversity.
Thanks Molly...3 cheers!

X-Did

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #183: "UMT - X-Did" by Annette Carlo

Our featured tangle this week is the sparkly x-did by Annette Carlo, with all the diamond shapes I though a good mix would be to add the tangles facets and footlights.

Square One: Purely Zentangle

Back in July Chris Titus and Jenny Perruzzi created a Facebook group called Square One: Purely Zentangle. Their idea is to go back to the basics of Zentangle with the act of focusing on the stoke of our pen on paper to create patterns. We are staying simple and pure with just black pens and grey pencil shading on a white 3.5" x 3.5" tile. A tangle is presented each week as a suggestion with the choice of using it as a monotangle or adding more tangles. The group has shared beautiful creations with stunning ideas and stories. Thank you Chris and Jenny, it's lovely to go back to the beginning, keep it simple with a bit of a tweak or tangleation.
