No peeking!

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #187: "String Theory - Blind String"

Actually I think that when drawing a string on a tile, keeping your eyes closed is one of the best way to do it!

Zentangle Workshop In The Tropics

Oh wow, today my morning started with this delightful movie clip sent from my very artistic friend Ingrid. Our Zentangle workshop was held in her elegant Queensland home set in the lush tropical rainforest nestled between the city of Cairns and the beautiful green mountains.
Everyone focused, relaxed, enjoyed the ambience and created stunning Zentangle art. The enthusiasm of the class was infectious and I was overjoyed with the results achieved.

Thank you so much Ingrid and Yvonne for inviting me to share my passion for Zentangle.

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.


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!

Thanks Molly...3 cheers!

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.
