Black Hills Majesty, Part 3

Talk about a super-long time to wait for a conclusion of a story! As I talked about in the proceeding post, I was MIA for over six months. I hid myself away from the world and took a very long hiatus from all things digital. Now that I am back, I thought I shouldn’t leave…

Still Here

I find it ironic that every couple of months I fall off the face of the planet only come back to apologize and vow never do it again. LOL Life is never that simple. I realize this is one of my longest breaks ever since starting this blog and I feel bad that I have not…

Day Forty One, Creation Forty One

One more day to go and I will be finished at last with my One Zentangle a Day challenge! Today’s task asked to incorporate traditional folk symbols and use them as tangles.  I gave this challenge a lot of thought and research (hence the delay in posting this challenge) and decided that I would honor my Native…

Day Forty, Creation Forty

Okay gang! I finally made it to day forty! This little milestone is marks nearly the end of my 42 day journey from the book One Zentangle a Day. I definitely did not create a tile every single day, but I have for the most part drawn every day since starting this quest. The in…

Day Thirty Six, Creation Thirty Six

Just seven days left in my One Zentangle a Day self-imposed challenge and what a trip it has been so far! I can’t believe I have completed Thirty-six tiles and almost just as many practice journal entries. It has been great to go back and review all the tiles I have made over the past…

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…

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,…

My niece’s first Zentangle tile! I’m so proud!

Well, you might be wondering were I have been all weekend. To put it simply- having fun! Saturday was a rainy wet day in the Chicagoland area, but my husband and I made the best of the day by working out the details for our upcoming Star Wars themed party and hitting a couple of…

Day Thirteen, Creation Thirteen

Sorry for my little hiatus everyone. What can I say? A music event of epic proportions took over my life the entire weekend. What is this awesome music festival you ask? Lollapalooza! Lollapalooza is a fantastic musical event where over 70 bands perform for three days in Chicago. Great bands, rock ‘in music and all-around…

Day Eleven, Creation Eleven

I finally feel great this evening! After some well deserved rest a from a head-cold I have been battling, I am starting to feel human again and ready to take on my art! Day eleven brought on a new challenge for me.  The book stated I could use any tangle I learned so far to…

Day Nine, Creation Nine

I was so excited when I turned to day nine in my “One Zentangle A Day” book. Day nine brought something I haven’t done before; working with a white pen on a black tile! This day’s challenge required me to do a little shopping. First , the black tile. Acquiring black tiles that were readily…

Day One, Creation One

Here it is folks! Day one, creation one for my self imposed daily Zentangle challenge! In case you didn’t read my earlier post, I am following “One Zentangle A Day” 6 week course. This first project was nice and easy which was made using some basic tangles. The tangle patterns that are featured is: “Static”,…
