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 […]

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 […]

Dreamcatcher Zentangle tangle compositions

This week’s Zentangle Diva’s challenge was to use Dreamcatcher, a tangle by Certified Zentangle Teacher Daniel Lemothe (yay Daniel). Daniel developed Dreamcatcher by deconstructing the pattern used in Native American dreamcatchers. Dreamcatchers were originally used by the Ojibwe (Chippewa) peoples who live mostly in eastern Canada and some northern mid-West states in the United States. […]

Brigantine Beach, New Jersey sunset

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.) This week the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use Ellish, a new official tangle (i.e. direct from the Zentangle Mother Ship). This is a fun one that uses the Holligbaugh technique of “drawing behind”. I added Akoya as a border tangle and also tried drawing […]

Aloha – A New Hawaii Inspired Boomeresque Tangle

March 7, 2016 18 comments

Updated May 27, 2017. In my response to the Zentangle Diva’s challenge number 257, I used a tangle inspired by a pattern I saw on a recent trip to Hawaii. Several people who commented on my blog post suggested/requested that I do the step outs for the pattern. Since the wishes of my faithful readers […]

Boomeresque’s Third Tangle Deconstruction? – Tercero

October 5, 2015 5 comments

Zentangle Tercero Tangle Deconstruction

Hmm. I don’t know if there’s a Spanish word for “tangle” and whether it is (or would be) a masculine or feminine  proper noun, so I’m sticking with masculine since I named my second tangle deconstruction “Segundo“. (OTOH, consistency is probably overrated). My first tangle deconstruction was imaginatively named “Phirst” — which is how we […]

Boomeresque’s “Phirst” Tangle Invention

August 10, 2015 23 comments

Yes, I know that’s not the correct spelling of “First”, but this is a tangle for use with the Zentangle method, so there are no mistakes—right? This is my first “invented” tangle and I’ve spelled “first” as “phirst” as a tip of my pretend hat to my hometown, Philadelphia.     This tangle is useful […]

April 7, 2015 33 comments

[If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.] Zentangle peeps, how many shirts (or other articles of clothing) have you ruined with indelible black ink? I’m wearing one of my ink stained shirts as we speak. I kept it to wear when I’m doodling tangling. The problem is, I didn’t put it on […]

September 12, 2014 8 comments

This week, the Diva challenged us to use the Zentangle tangle “ING“. I am way, way late to the link share this week, but I have a good excuse. Last Saturday, we left for Munich, Germany (from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) where my husband was speaking at the annual meeting of the European Respiratory Society — […]

Zentangle Inspired Art

[This post was revised on April 23, 2015 after I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT)] My name is Jane Doe Suzanne and I’m a tangle addict. Apparently, I’m also a pusher as several friends are now also tangle addicts. (You know who you are.) The thing is, I don’t really want to be cured of […]
