Zentangle Diva Challenge #252 – Blizzard of 2016 Edition

January 25, 2016 41 comments

Rittenhouse Square snowman.

[In the mood for some mind travel? Try Zentangle®.] I’m writing this two days after the Blizzard of 2016 dropped up to 31 inches of snow on the Mid-Atlantic states, the most densely populated part of the United States. It’s ironic that in my response to last week’s challenge, I indulged in complaining about the weather—because […]

Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day logo

The Harms’s younger son was born with this very rare congenital neurological disorder adversely affecting cranial nerves VI and VII which control lateral movement of the face. As with many […]

Boomeresque’s Third Tangle Deconstruction? – Tercero

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 […]

[Are you new to the Zentangle method? Then, start HERE.] I admit I almost did not attempt today’s challenge by guest diva, Charlotte Carpentier, CZT. Charlotte’s challenge was for us to use a stencil as our string. Before I could even think about the challenge, we had to pack up to return to Philadelphia from […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #235

[Zentangle? What? Who? Need answers? Start here.] Like many others, the Zentangle Diva’s family finished their first week of school. Her little sons seem off to a good start except that the fist week of school is a great time for germ sharing. Her little one already has some health challenges, so here’s hoping his […]

Boomeresque’s Second Tangle Invention – “Segundo”

September 11, 2015 10 comments

Zentangle Segundo

[New to Zentangle®? You can read about it here.] Those of you who understand Spanish know that “segundo” translates to “second” in English. This shows a marked lack of imagination on my part in naming my tangle inventions (deconstructions) since I named my first tangle, “Phirst“. I think Segundo is what Linda Farmer (TanglePatterns.com’s “mother”), would […]

Zentangle Diva’s Challenge #231-Undulating Tangles and Brigantine Sunsets (Just Because)

August 17, 2015 22 comments

Zentangle Diva Challenge 231

This week the Zentangle Diva’s challenge is by Sharla Hicks, CZT, a summer guest diva. Sharla challenged us to use undulating tangles, explaining that she finds tangles composed of undulating “C” and “S” curves to be calming. I’m actually kind of fond of them myself partly because they’re very “forgiving”, and notwithstanding the rule that […]

[If you’re thinking” Zen…What?”, you should probably start here.] This week’s Zentangle Diva’s challenge was presented by summer substitute Diva, Erin Olson, CZT. Erin rounded things up this week by challenging us to use a specific Zendala tile string. For the uninitiated, a “Zendala” is a take on the word “Mandala”, which means “circle” in […]

Zentangle Inspired Art

(This post was revised on April 23, 2015 after I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT), and most recently on May 10, 2020). 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 […]
