Zentangle tiles

Some Boomeresque readers know that in addition to being addicted to Zentangle®, I’m also very fond of Mr. Excitement, travel, sunsets, flora (even though no plant species is safe in my care), and dogs. Most blog gurus strongly recommend niche blogs; that is, pick a narrow topic and only write about that. It turns out, […]

You know you’re back in Philly when a 19th century Rittenhouse Square  townhouse is festooned with one American flag and 2 Eagles Nation flags. (For non-USAers, the Eagles are […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge using Mezzanine

I’m supposed to be writing a blog post about our trip to the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. It was one of our best trips, but I’m having a severe case of procrastination, a/k/a writer’s block. Seriously, we were there in February. It’s now October. The hour glass in the title of this […]

Seespan: A Boomeresque Continuous Line Tangle

September 28, 2018 6 comments

The silver lining for this year of distressing cable news in the United States is that it seems to inspire me want to be creative as I watch listen. I meld my politics addiction with my Zentangle method addiction. My latest tangle can best be described as a continuous line tangle. Linda Farmer of tanglepatterns.com encouraged me […]

The Zentangle Diva, Laura, took a break from posting her weekly challenges and I admit I was experiencing withdrawal pangs.

She eased us back in gently for challenge #366 […]

dinoflor monotangle

I’ve been watching waaaay too much cable news. The silver lining is that I don’t really watch. I listen while I tangle #1) because I enjoy tangling, and #2) to stay at least relatively sane.
