Hump Day Zentangle Challenge, Mandala Zendala

During the winter here in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States in the northern hemisphere, I usually fall prey to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Then, I feel guilty because I know I have been so fortunate compared to others. One way I try to cope is to plan a trip to somewhere warm during […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #12

This is my last Hump Day Zentangle post from our summer abode “down the shore” in Brigantine, New Jersey. (Note to Miscreants: Other people will be here so don’t get any ideas!)

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 […]

Petoskey stone

This week’s guest Zentangle Diva is Jane Reiter who challenged us to do a composition inspired by Petoskey Stones. It turns out that Petoskey Stones are the Michigan state stone and are, in fact, very cool fossils of an ancient coral. I did a little research and it turns out my home state, Pennsylvania, doesn’t […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge 329 by Suzanne Fluhr

First, thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge last week when I was the guest Zentangle Diva. I was most impressed by the work and creativity. I tried to leave a comment on all of them, but I’m afraid I missed some over the weekend. It’s a shame my husband, Mr. Excitement, wasn’t […]

Rittenhouse Square Philadelphlia snow scene

(Zentangle is a meditative art form. If you want to read more about it, start here.) We finally had some real winter weather here in Philly complete with at least some measurable snow. It happened on Saturday, which meant most people could stay home and enjoy it. It was very pretty, inspiring me to brave […]

Zentangle Diva Challenges – Insomnia Edition

November 10, 2016 19 comments

(New to Zentangle, start here.) It’s November 10th, three days after the USA shocked over half of it’s voters (and all of the pundits) by electing you know who. I’m still too numb to mention his name. I was intending to write a therapeutic blog post about our election after having been consumed by it […]
