Weekly Challenge #29: "String Theory v. IV: Creative Genesis"

Well, I am definetly behind in the weekly challenges.  I really enjoyed this one.  I have some very interesting antique Mother of Pearl Buckles that I used for my string.

 I was just looking at the top left string, and the string doesn't match the drawing.  It is however the buckle I used.  So I must not have taken a picture of the actual string for this one.


I do have one more drawing to add to this challenge, but it is not finished yet.  So I will add it on a later blog post.

Now to get busy on some of the other challenges that can be found at "I am the Diva"

Weekly Challenge #30: "String Theory v.V :Initialize"

I finally finished a piece on time for the Weekly Challenge.  This is Challenge #30 " String Theory v.V: Initialize.  We were to draw first and last initials that overlap and use this as our string.

Now I need to go back and finish Challenge #29.  I have a few started for this challenge.

Happy Tangling!

Drawing with my Niece

My 10 year old niece, Autumn, has been staying with me and she loves to draw.  SO... I told her about Zentangle, I got her a sketch pad and some Micron pens and she hasn't stopped drawing since.  Here is one of her drawings

This is what I came up with while she was drawing.  I was just trying out different patterns to see how they would look.

Happy Tangling!

My New Obsession

In May, I was watching a show on tv, Scrapbook Memories, and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer was demonstrating how to draw Zentangle® inspired art.  The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.

  I have always liked to doodle, but this was taking doodling to a whole new level.  I searched Zentangle®  inspired art on the internet and I was so excited to see the beautiful art created by so many.  I am starting this blog to keep track of my drawings and I can watch my progression in my work.  Since I am new to Zentangle®, I feel I have much improving to do.

This week "I Am the Diva" has another weekly challenge.  Spiral Out, Keep Going, Challenge #26.  Here are a few of the Spirals I have done for this challenge.

Before I  saw the challenge for the week, I was working on this piece, it fits the theme.

Happy Tangling!!
