Zentangle Diva Challenge #318 – Brigantine Beach Diptych Edition

June 1, 2017 9 comments

Zentangle diptych 3

Zentangle is a meditative art form. You can read more about it here. This week, the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, challenged us to do a diptych. A dip-what? (I’m having trouble with words today. I don’t know what “covfefe” means either.) Actually, my brain managed to resurrect memories from my university Art History 101 course. […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #317 – Stand with England Edition

May 27, 2017 21 comments

I realize it’s kind of very late in the week to be posting my response to this week’s Zentangle Diva’s challenge which was to use a photo as a string and tangle around it. This week’s challenge was posted the morning after the horrific suicide bombing of a Manchester, England arena just as a concert filled with […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #310 – Washington, D.C., (“Frunky Town”) USA Edition

April 3, 2017 13 comments

United States Capitol Building

(Never heard of Zentangle, start here.) Before anyone sends me an annoyed email pointing out that the correct name of the song is “Funkytown“, my use of “Frunky” is a reference to the name of the tangle (pattern) the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use this week. “Frunky” was deconstructed and shared by Katharina Königsbauer-Kolb, all […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #309 — OCD Edition

March 28, 2017 29 comments

(Zentangle? Who? What? Start here.) This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use a new tangle from the Mother Ship, in other words, an “official” tangle, called Noom. I know I have a few, mostly controlled, perfectionist tendencies and Noom brought them to the fore. Some people just share their first attempt at the […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #307 — From Hawaii and Mexico to a Blizzard Edition???

March 13, 2017 17 comments

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.) I was feeling a big smug, thinking that Mr. Excitement and I had managed to escape what I was sure would have been the worst of Philadelphia’s winter by escaping leaving for a month from January 22nd until February 21st. We started with a week in Honolulu, […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #299 – Hawaii Bound Edition

Pacific Ocean off Honolulu, Hawaii

I have to admit, this hasn’t been a very trying winter here in the Delaware Valley (Philadelphia and environs). We’ve had only real snow of 3-5 inches and within days it was 65 degrees. Still, it’s darker and grayer, and I can feel Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)  starting to rear its ugly head. Consequently, I’m […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #298: Philadelphia is Pretty in the Snow Edition

Rittenhouse Square Philadelphlia snow scene

(Zentangle is a meditative art form. If you want to read more about it, start here.) We finally had some real winter weather here in Philly complete with at least some measurable snow. It happened on Saturday, which meant most people could stay home and enjoy it. It was very pretty, inspiring me to brave […]

Holiday lights on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia

I’ve been a bit of a stranger to the Zentangle Diva Challenge world for a few weeks. I did actually do the challenges, but I never got around to posting them on my blog. I’ll add them to my Zentangle Inspired Art Pinterest board if anyone is interested in checking them out. This week’s challenge […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #293 – Philadelphia Windows Edition

November 15, 2016 19 comments

(New to Zentangle, start here.) I’m very grateful I learned about Zentangle before Donald Trump became the president elect of the United States. It’s a place I can go when the real world just seems to be too much. This week, Laura Harms (the Zentangle Diva) asked us to use the tangle Keeko. Keeko is […]

Zentangle Diva Challenges – Insomnia Edition

November 10, 2016 19 comments

(New to Zentangle, start here.) It’s November 10th, three days after the USA shocked over half of it’s voters (and all of the pundits) by electing you know who. I’m still too numb to mention his name. I was intending to write a therapeutic blog post about our election after having been consumed by it […]
