Art Yoga Retreat

Something to think about for Tanglers in Tasmania.
11th -13th November
Maria Island in springtime....that's a treat. Fresh air. Sunshine.
Suzie's nourishing food and the peaceful setting is the best way to relax and be inspired to create something special.
I am really looking forward to this weekend.

Duotangle Meer vs Auraknot

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #279: "Duotangle Meer vs Auraknot"

I probably wouldn't have thought of this combination so thank you Laura because the tile felt quite festive and I think I'll play some more with this idea.

Softly does it backgrounds!

Amazingly there is always something new to learn about Zentangle techniques. If you have the Zentangle Mosaic app you have probably seen Maria Thomas's latest wonderful tiles. This week I have been inspired by her tangling to play with the white pen creating soft backgrounds.

Travelling Tangles

Have you heard of the Travelling Tangles Project?

If not check out the Facebook page here  It's easy, just read Stephanie Jennifer's guidelines and share.

Tangles are travelling all over the world, basically we tangle half a tile and mail it to a tangler that you have invited to share your tiles and they finish off your tile and keep it. You will receive a tile in return, it really is a fun project.

Here are some of my shared tiles.

I mailed this tile to Francious Lip in Queensland and she completed it (below)

This one is from Janet Day (USA) which I completed.

Here is a tile from Christel Fonke (Belgium)
and finished by me.

I mailed this one to Michele Wynne (USA) and she completed it.

Running 'round in Circles

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #277: Running 'round in Circles

The featured tangle this week on our Facebook group 'Square One: Purely Zentangle' is echoism which is really hard to see on this tile but it's hidden in there. If you are not sure what it looks like click on Tanglepatterns.
I decided to draw echoism around a circle so it worked really well for The Diva's challenge as well. It was funny how echoism disappeared by filling in the spaces and had to have another go with colour on a Zendala.

Moving tangles!

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #276: "SpaceTruckin' - Moving tangles!"

Fun, wobbly and good memories. These two tiles were tangled while Paul and I travelled on the fast train from Paris to Amsterdam last September. I had been so inspired by the beautiful balconies and railings in Paris that as soon as we settled in our seats on the train my tiles and pen were out.  Oh, I had a glass of wine as well (as you do in France)!
