The Gift of Zentangle
The Diva Challenges are 6 years old this week. What an accomplishment to have inspired so many for so long. These challenges have fueled so much of my work and I'm truly grateful to Laura and everyone who participates in the challenges. The challenge this week was to choose from the 6 challenges presented at this time over the last 6 years. I decided to revisit last years challenge to give the Gift of Zentangle.
I started making these Christmas tree ornaments last week after checking out Tina Creates Art's Diva submission. She was inspired by the new 3Z tiles and created elongated triangles to reflect Christmas trees. At the same time Adele's String challenge inspired the use of the pattern "O". I still have to make about 20 more and laminate them... and add the string, but these are going to be gifts this year. I painted both sides of a sheet of watercolor paper and then cut out the shapes. One side is tangled with Adele Bruno's "O" patterns with white gel pen and colored pencil. The other side are gemmy orb ornaments.
In keeping with last years challenge I will also send one to 3 of you. Just leave me a comment and I'll randomly select 3 names on Monday the 19th. So stay tuned!
Finish my tile series: Verdigogh
Joey started this off with Verdigogh. I'm still in "O" mode and created this to go with my Adele tree from last weeks String Challenge (it's the one I linked to above).
12 Days of 3Z from Zentangle HQ: Day 9
This has been a super fun challenge. The 9th tile added "Auraknot" to the melange. I'm still determined to get all 12 patterns on one tile when all is said and done. I'm loving the mosaic;-) Check this out to see HQ's mosaic so far and a little surprise: the step-out for the new pattern "Drawings"
I just finished my Travelling Tangles for December's swap. The theme is Gems.

This was inspired by Heidi Whitney's blogpost last week.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments are what keep me going.
Wishing you all the happiest of holidays!
