Yesterday, we were on the receiving end of over two feet of snow from the Blizzard that pretty much blanketed most of the east coast with snow. I’m guessing I had snow on my mind when I went to sleep Friday night, because when I woke up, I had this tangle floating around my head.
I really had a lot of fun with this one, and there are quite a few “tanglelations” that I’ve tried already…including adding some Gemmy aspects….
In this tile, I have three variations of it among Hollibaugh. I hope you give it a try!
There are all these beautiful Zentangle Inspired works appearing in the groups on FB and it’s all about these wonderful “Gems” I first saw the gems made by Kae Yoshino, and the tutorials on that blog. A few members of my Facebook group were asking for a video – I searched and just couldn’t find one so….I made a quick one. Keep in mind that how I make the gems is just one of the techniques out there and there are many. I hope it helps. There is also a new ebook from Eni Oken – you can find it on her blog.
I was doing a little tangling today, trying to catch up on my Tangle-a-Day calendar and then I got bit by this bug….
So many tangles out there and I just got a bug to combine these two – Arukas meets Diva Dance – this was a ton of fun and I definitely will be doing this again!
You can find Diva Dance, created by Maria Thomas to Celebrate Laura and her 100th Weekly challenge, HERE.
I have a group on FB, For the Love of Tangling, that’s been a lot of fun and it’s a wonderful group of people. We were having weekly challenges, but that was a little too much, so we’ve now gone to Monthly Challenges. My inspiration for July’s Challenge was a tile I started at CZT Seminiar, one of the pre-strung Zendalas.
I finished it this morning and Viola! July’s Zendala Challenge is born!
Patterns used here are Poke Leaf, Diva Dance Rock N’ Roll, and Betweed. Come on over and join us in the group and you can participate in the challenge! With a whole month to work on this, we should have a photo album just brimming with amazing! Do one – do more than one – prestrung, your own design, a template….go for it. Show us your Zendalas!
My 5th and probably, favorite coloring page just went live in my Etsy shop…..
Owl Watch Over You
Adorable Owls, with pretty Botanical’s and a little hint of Summer Time Bee’s all in an instant PDF you can print out on your choice of paper and start coloring however you like. You can even add some tangles if coloring isn’t your thing. Your PDF will print out without the center watermark. I’d love to see this once you’ve colored it in, so be sure to let me know!
Next time you read this blog….I’m hoping to have become a CZT!
Now available for instant download….
Dragonfly surrounded by beautiful flowers – ready for you to color or doodle to your hearts content! (pdf will not have watermark)
Here is a WIP…..I’ve a little more to do on it, but this will be the first of what I hope are many new coloring pages.
I’m not sure whether to offer the pages individually, but still include them in book form when I have enough of them, making the book more economical? And the learning curve on editing is getting better – it takes a bit of time, but hopefully that will improve. This, of course, isn’t really edited or cleaned up.
Let me know what you think!
