In Remembrence of Gina

An online friend from the tatting community that I belong to has passed away, my heart is sad with the loss of this dear lady.  I drew this picture for her.  I will miss you Gina Brummett! 

Tangled Heart

I needed a Get Well card and thought it would be nice to make my own.  I saw a heart with a flower in the center on-line awhile back.  I wish I would have bookmarked the site, but here is my version of the heart I saw.
More hearts are coming for the month of February.

Happy February

Where did January go?   I blinked and it was gone.  Anyway, since February 14 is Valentine's Day and Hearts represent this Holiday, I think all my Zentangle drawings this month will have hearts in them or have hearts as the focal point.  I have a few drawings done already.  Drawing hearts always gives me a happy feeling.

These two hearts I drew last year when I first learned about Zentangle.  I didn't have any Micron pens yet so I drew these in pencil. I mentioned before that Mooka is one of my favorite tangles, but I also really like betweed.

This next heart I just drew a couple days ago, it is a Twinchi size, which is 2" x 2"  It resembles the two hearts above.

I will be posting more hearts later, that's all for now.

Happy Tangling!

First ATC Swap

I finally got up the nerve to join in on a swap with my Zentangles.  The swap was for an ATC - size card.  I made one for my partner and another as a hostess gift.


I like drawing the Mooka Pod and the flower in the corners.  I tend to draw them a lot.  I try not to draw the same designs over and over again, so I'll go through my Zentangle books and just pick a design out I have not tried before and go with it.

The next was for a challenge/raffle.  There were a couple templates to choose from to tangle in, a bird, flower and a vase.  I liked the vase and chose it.  Below is my finished drawing.  I'm always afraid to add shading to my drawings, so if it is an important piece, I will make a photo copy of the drawing and shade it in and see how it looks.  If I'm satisfied with the overall shading, then I'll do it on the original drawing.

I recently purchased the 2012 Zentangle Calendar from Carol Ohl and have enjoyed drawing in the calendar.  The card stock that is used in the book is wonderful to draw on.  The paper is so smooth that your Micron pen will just glide on the paper.  I will post some pictures of my drawing from the calendar soon.
