Use My Tangle: Orbs-la-dee by Anneke van Dam
The Diva is back and hopefully, so am I. The past 6 weeks has gotten me off my game. Capping off all of the holiday shenanigans was a week of house/dog sitting. Though I'd brought all of my drawing tools with me, there was not a comfortable place to draw and the lighting was bad. There was, however, cable TV, internet and good coffee. I fueled my Food Network addiction and cooked enough to inject my sadly neglected food blog with a little love.
I bought a new journal to kick off the new year. I like to do several sampler type Zia's in the beginning so I have some references when I'm feeling stuck.
I was so happy to revisit Orbs-la-dee. I had forgotten all about it, so it was perfectly fitting to include it here. I started this page after last week's Joey Challenge. I was looking at a lot of "A" patterns and made note of the ones I didn't get to use on last weeks entry.

additionally: Bambooz, Bala, Buttacup and Barquillos
I've challenged myself to use at least one new pattern in every piece I create for the duration of the month...maybe longer.
Here's a Back-to-Basics piece I created for the Facebook group Zentangle: Tangled and Journaled Too! They're following The Zentangle Primer lessons. I don't have the book but I'm trying to follow along anyway. The task was to create tangleations of the 4 basic patterns. I'm really enjoying this.
