|Fassett, Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Purkisms|
I decided to go the monotangle route incorporating embellishments of Cresent Moon, lot's of Auras, Rounding, and some Purkisms. I like the balance of the the organic spheres within the architectural feel of Fassett. Fun, fun, fun!
I tried a second version today using Fassett with very different results. I left it ebb and flow and do as it wished... Blooming and growing with a few Mooka thrown in.

Thanks Lynn and Laura! Check out the other entries in this week's Diva Challenge.
|Shattuck breaking out of the box / Zendala|
I chose to go simple and let the little Shattucks curve off the Zendala, breaking free, extending the Shattuck with little Mooka tendrils and a few purk-like embellishments. This piece is not perfect, but I do like the general vibe.
Happy Bunny Day to you.
|N'Zeppel, Tipple, Celtic designs, Punzel, Tipple, Leaves, Aura's |
and a touch of green
I used a N'Zeppel, Tipple, Celtic designs, Punzel, Tipple, Leaves, Aura's and a touch of green to nestle this ornate little devil. I think I'm going to try adding some liquid gold leaf at some point, we found out a few weeks ago that metallic doesn't scan well, so, I'll play with that addition later for my own edification.
So Happy St. Pat's Day to you all this week. Check out the Diva's site for other Irish Inspired works.
|A little touch of green for spring|
Rautyflex, Folds, Crescent Moon, and Auras
Not totally successful but always fun to challenge myself. Progress, not perfection?

|Tangled tin can lid, Printemps, Crescent Moon,|
Hollibaugh with Mooka / Pod tendrils and
lot's of sparkle and shine (I hope)
I chose to embrace the challenge full tilt, go ALL the way. I tangled a tin can lid using my Staedler permanent pens for the black, and Sakura white and metallic gel pens for the embellishments.
Fun times. For this piece I wanted to make my tangled lid become part of my ZIA. I chose Hollibaugh with Pod extensions, Crescent Moon and lot's of Mooka-like tendrils. Add auras and lots of layers and it is complete.!
I find it difficult to represent the metallic quality with a camera, so I added a closeup detail to show the sparkly quality of this piece. It's done on and 8.5 x 11 sheet.

Challenge #255 -
Ghosts of Tangles Past
I didn't get my piece posted for last week's Diva Challenge #255, so here it is.
When I was first exposed to the Zentangle process in 2010, I became obsessed. Everywhere I went I carried my drawing pad and created a new Zentangle piece several times a week. I scanned in one of my first pieces 8/2/2010. I had titled this piece "Thru the Garden" and tried to incorporate all the things I would experience in a garden. I tended to fill every nook and cranny and began each piece with a familiar object or place to inspire me.
I was using a Kohinoor Rapidograph pen for most of my work. I was fascinated with line quality, textures and the detail tangling brought to my creative process. No shading.
For my redo, I retained the original string. I scanned in the original piece in and looked over all the elements and chose the ones I was going to keep. My work is now more open the tangles and textures more defined, shading is a Major part of my work
I had written a poem for this piece but I couldn't find the Toad until I looked at the scanned image on screen:
Through the garden,
I see a Toad,
He's following me,
The Koi in the pond,
