Zentangle Diva Challenges #366-7 – She’s Back!!! Edition

September 9, 2018 9 comments

cloudscape Brigantine New Jersey

The Zentangle Diva, Laura, took a break from posting her weekly challenges and I admit I was experiencing withdrawal pangs. Although I’m enough of a Zentangle® junkie that I never stopped tangling, especially while watching cable TV news, I missed the discipline imposed by the Diva’s challenges. She eased us back in gently for challenge #366 […]

Dinoflor – A New Organic Tangle from Boomeresque

August 9, 2018 18 comments

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. I realize this is a subversion of the Zentangle® method which should be undertaken in a calm setting, perhaps with […]

Spangles, A New Boomeresque Tangle (With Apologies to Francis Scott Key)

Spangles, a new boomeresque tangle

With the caveat that I’ve tried to do due diligence to discover whether this is already a named tangle, here is Spangles, a new Boomeresque tangle. It’s a little embarrassing to admit that the genesis of this tangle is nothing in particular. I suspect it started when I was doing some old-fashioned, traditional doodling while […]

(For anyone visiting this post from Zentangle DivaLandistan where I am guest Diva this week, scroll down to see Aloha used with 2 versions of Shorely.)

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 #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 […]

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. […]

Aloha – A New Hawaii Inspired Boomeresque Tangle

March 7, 2016 30 comments

Updated August 4, 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 […]
