Zentangle Diva’s Challenge #186 — Leaves

by Suzanne Fluhr on September 22, 2014 · 20 comments

This is one of those times when I wish I were Canadian. Presumably, then I would have a clue how to draw a maple leaf. Under the circumstances of my nationality (I’m a United Stateser), I just did the best I could with this week’s challenge:

Zentangle--Diva's Challenge #186 Leaves

As some of you may have realized, when I’m not indulging my Zentangle addiction, I’m a travel blogger. If you’re interested in following along, please “like” my blog Facebook page which you can do here.

I’m looking forward to see where everyone else went with this week’s challenge.

Beautiful and colorful.

This is a lovely tangle and representative of the colors. I live in Kansas and we have a variety of trees. My favorites are the oaks and maples, which are very pretty when they turn.

I love the idea of coloured leaves on a Tangled backdrop. Clever and pretty too.


Nat September 22, 2014 at 12:41 pm

Very colourful and the background makes it look like they’re floating down a stream.

You did a fine job of leaves. That’s what’s fun about leaves; they come in so many different sizes and shapes! Great idea to tangle the background.


Annemarie September 23, 2014 at 4:16 am

Very pretty! Nothing wrong with your leaves!


Ellen Wolters September 23, 2014 at 4:24 am

Very colorful; i love it!


David Hunter September 23, 2014 at 10:23 am

A very delightful, colorful Tile, Suzanne. Love the backgrounds ebb and flow. Wonderful color work on your leaves. Well done.


Tinas-Welt September 23, 2014 at 12:43 pm

A great background you drew, he lifts the leaves out really nice


Kia September 23, 2014 at 2:17 pm

Just because you’re Canadian, doesn’t mean you can draw a maple leaf – lol. I live the colours you have used – very Autumn. Nice background too.


Suzanne Fluhr September 23, 2014 at 4:58 pm

But at least Canadians see “maple leaves” flying outside just about every public building. Around here, we have to wait for a Canadian hockey team to visit. 😉

I think you did a great job by drawing the leaves with no example. It is just the way you see it and you do it. I think thats great. Your colors are beautiful and make me think of the beautiful colors I saw on the trees when I was in Rhode Island last year (oct. 2013), when I visited the USA for my CZT seminar. There is a lot of movement in your tile, and that makes my mind go to the Autumn winds here in the Netherlands.


Suzanne Fluhr September 23, 2014 at 4:57 pm

Fall in the northeastern United States eastern Canada) is indeed a special time. I have yet to visit the Netherlands, but my husband may have a meeting there next year in which case you can be sure I’ll be tagging along.


Lily September 23, 2014 at 4:23 pm

Lovely tile 🙂


Kelly September 23, 2014 at 4:49 pm

I always wait a day or so AFTER I’ve done mine to go back and see what everyone else has done, that way I don’t feel like I”m copying any and it gives it time for people to post a bunch for me to look at! (One of my favorite parts is seeing how everyone else interprets the challenges.) I like what you did here, did you use watercolor pencils?
I’m not Canadian either but I live close enough to the border that I think I’m honorary!!! 😀


Suzanne Fluhr September 23, 2014 at 4:55 pm

Thanks for stopping by. I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils which have the code PC 946 on them. I think my husband bough them for me. We thought they were regular graphite pencils, but they are softer and leave more color.

What a colourful piece 🙂 The colours look very well-blended 🙂


LonettA September 24, 2014 at 3:16 am

This is really lovely! I like the colourful leaves and the wonderful movement in the background!


Donald W September 25, 2014 at 10:38 am

Nice color to the leaves. I like the tangled background. Mine is similar to yours in that I did not tangle inside the leaves.


Helen September 25, 2014 at 7:26 pm

Lovely and colourful!
