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).

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. […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge

We’ve been sweltering under an excessive heat warning here in the northeastern United States. I’m hunkered down in Brigantine, a New Jersey beach town where it’s supposed to be cooler than my home town, Philadelphia. However, with a heat index of 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius) even at the ocean’s edge, escaping “down the […]

Gate, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, Scotland

(Zentangle? Who? What?) The Zentangle Diva and her family are back from their 3 week road trip from Saskatoon, Canada to southern California and back. Somehow she found the energy to post a challenge. She posted a day late because she had to celebrate Saskatchewan Day. (Who knew Saskatchewan had a day?) For those who might […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #263 – All the World’s a Globe Edition

April 12, 2016 21 comments

[If Zentangle® is a new concept for you, start here.] I’ll make this short and sweet this week. Our challenge from the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, CZT, was to produce a grid on a zendala shape. I admit to “messing up” a zendala tile and then just tracing it so I wouldn’t mess up any […]

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 […]
