Drifts, a new Tangle


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.


Arukas Meets Diva Dance


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.

For the Love of Tangling July Challenge!


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!
