Day Thirty One, Creation Thirty One

Faux Illuminated Letters was the theme for today`s challenge.  The “faux” part of these illluminated tiles is that I didn`t use real gold just a gold pen… Anyway, I really loved using letters as outlines that I decided to make two tangles! The first tile created was on black paper using opaque Gellyroll  pens from…

Day Thirty, Creation Thirty

The day has finally arrived. Today I will be posting my very first tangle I ever created! Without further ado…I would like to introduce my new tangle called “Lazy Eights”! This fun new tangle was inspired by my One Zentangle a Day, Day Thirty challenge. For this day, I was asked to use my practice…

Lazy Eights Tangle Pattern

Lazy Eights is a very easy tangle that uses a simple figure eight drawn line repeated in two directions; one vertical and one horizontal. Doing this creates a little flower-like bloom. Lines are drawn from the center outward as an added flair to each of the open petals. As a final touch I added a…

Day Twenty Nine, Creation Twenty Nine

So I spent the past couple of weeks playing around with creating my very own tangle as I eluded to in my last post. I finally picked one of my designs, gave it a name and was already to unveil my glorious new tangle. However, upon looking up what my next day would entail, I…

Day Twenty Eight, Creation Twenty Eight

  Sorry for the little gap in time folks. After a wonderful time-off relaxing at home, it was time to get back to work-literally. It’s been super busy these past three days, so I am a little behind in posting this day. Day Twenty Eight marks the fifteenth day remaining until I complete my One…

Day Twenty Seven, Creation Twenty Seven

Okay, so I was really hoping that I would finish my One Zentangle a Day self-imposed challenge in 2013. Alas, this was not meant to be. Life always prove that we may not always accomphlish our life’s ambitions, but that does not mean that we stop trying. I learned it is best to brush of…

Day Twenty Six, Creation Twenty Six

My heart is heavy today. It is with sadness that I tell you that I just lost my grandmother. I found out late yesterday as I was creating this very tile. Even though I knew she was sick and could leave us anytime now, once the news was given, it is still came as a…

Day Twenty Five, Creation Twenty Five

This is definitely a fun tile I created for today. I finally managed to crack open my new mini travel watercolor set that I got in October. With all the craziness that has been happening since purchasing this set, I just never had a chance to use my new art toy.  Now that I had…

Day Twenty Four, Creation Twenty Four

One would think that this would get easier as the days go by, but I still stuggle sometimes of where to begin when I start a post. I have a therory that most of the time I am blogging at the end of the day and I am just mental drained from the work day….

Day Twenty Three, Creation Twenty Three

Ahh! It’s good to be back blogging again. I realized during my short absence, that I missed blogging. Blogging afforded me the ability to talk about what I was working on, what I was feeling and sometimes allowed me to vent. Now that I am trying to get back into the habit, I am coming…

Day Twenty Two, Creation Twenty Two

Guilty as charged. You caught me in the act of ignoring my blog like the plague. It’s not like I don’t care, I do. However, I just didn’t feel like posting for a while- you know? Not only that, I haven’t really created anything in over a week. Now that’s really lame. Ironically, I have…

Day Twenty One, Creation Twenty One

Yeah! This was a fun couple of tangles to practice with and combine them into one tile. The tangle you see the most is a tangle I absolutely love called “Betweed”. I fell in love with this particular tangle when I first was introduced to the art form of Zentangle. Founder and creator, Maria Thomas,…
