Diva Weekly Challenge #137

This is my first attempt at entering the Diva's challenge and it is Knightsbridge and Tipple combined in one tile. Both of these tangles are pretty simple, but I do have issue with my circles.  I know I just need to practice.

I made one on a white Zentangle card and the other on a black one.  The black one is using a gel pen and highlighted with a white pencil crayon.

Well those are my entries for this weeks challenge.  See you next time.

ZIA Creations

Thought I would post a couple of ZIA pieces I did recently. ZIA stands for Zentangle Inspired Art.  Can you count how many Tangles I used in this piece?

When I was making this one - Comet - I wanted to try out the border tangles and thought that the tail of a comet would work.  Can you see the sun and Saturn?

For this next piece I wanted to make a big flower and then fill-in the background with other little flowers.

So what do you think? 


New to Zentangle

I was searching the web for learning how to draw and came across Zentangle.  I remembered the name from a fellow crafter who had bought a book and was incorporating Tangles in her journal.  Intrigued, I watched a few videos and ended up on the official Zentagle web site -  I saw that there was a teacher certification and signed up only to discover that I was on the waiting list.

I searched the web for teachers in my area and found Barb Round in Campbell River. So I took her set of three classes and was on my way.

I made these during the classes.....

Keep Tangling!
